The Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association (CESA) has announced that 262,076 people attended Tokyo Game Show 2019, which was held in the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan from September 12-15.
That’s down significantly from Tokyo Game Show 2018’s attendance figure (298,690) but is higher than 2017’s (254,311).
It also played home to almost 1,500 business meetings, over double as many as TGS 2018, according to CESA.
Capcom used the show to demo team-based Resident Evil spin-off Project Resistance, while Kojima Productions premiered new Death Stranding gameplay.
Speaking to VGC at Tokyo Game Show, CD Projekt Red level designer Max Pears said the studio believes the decision to make Cyberpunk 2077 “100% first-person” is the right choice for the game and explained how gender customisation works in the highly anticipated RPG.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai acknowledged the late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata after the game won multiple prizes at Japan Game Awards 2019. The ceremony is held annually in conjunction with TGS, both of which are organised by CESA.
The association also confirmed that Tokyo Game Show 2020 will be held from September 24-27, 2020 at Makuhari Messe.
