TOKYO GAME SHOW 2022

Application

Concept and Outline

In 2020 and 2021, TOKYO GAME SHOW was held online due to the spread of Covid-19 infection.

We have been able to deliver a lot of game content while taking advantage of the unique merits of being online, which can be accessed from any location, by distributing programs, trying out demo versions, e-commerce, and business matching on various online platforms.

However, many TGS fans and exhibitors have been asking for the return of the real (in-person) and wanting to go to Makuhari Messe next year.

It was two years that made me realize once again that even though new information can be obtained through the Internet, the excitement and joy of the moment can only be created by sharing the same space with everyone.

In 2022, TOKYO GAME SHOW will be held at Makuhari Messe for the first time in three years.

The show will be held for four days from September 15 (Thu.) to 18 (Sun.), with Business Day and a Public Day.

We are planning to take more thorough measures against infectious diseases than ever before, so that all visitors, exhibitors, and staff can enjoy TGS with peace of mind and realize the "long-awaited" TGS that everyone has been waiting for.

Of course, the online content will also be enhanced.

There are many exhibitors and visitors who cannot actually come to Makuhari Messe due to various restrictions. Therefore, we are planning to provide more enjoyable contents online as well.

TOKYO GAME SHOW is not just a PR event, but a great opportunity to show the future of games in Asia and the rest of the world, and to convey the value of games to the world.

Although the future still remains uncertain, we hope that a wide range of game-related companies will participate in the show to communicate the strength and appeal of games.
