Tokyo Game Show 2020 Online will be held for five days in September, the event’s organiser has announced.
The event, which was shifted to a digital-only setup following the pandemic, will host a variety of programming from September 23 until 27.
From the 24th, various companies including “major publishers” will make game updates and new announcements via TGS’s official streaming and video channels, the Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association (CESA) said.
In addition, online round-table discussions, an esports tournament and a business matching system for exhibitors will be offered free-of-charge.
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).
The cancellation of this year’s E3 show caused games publishers to spread their marketing plans more broadly across the 2020 calendar.
