Last year many events were either postponed or shifted to an online-only event. So for example we haven’t had a physical presence at E3 since the 2019 showcase. However this year it remains online so it may be until 2023 before we see E3 as we traditionally know it. Another event that went online in the past two years is the Tokyo Game Show. At this point, the Tokyo Game Show 2022 is going to be at this moment in time a physical event.
Tokyo Game Show and What We Can Expect
Tokyo Games Show returns this year as a physical event. This is the case for both businesses and general visitors. Therefore it returns to its usual home of Makuhari Messe Event Hall. The event will begin for industry people on 15th September and the general public on the 17th. The event ends on 18th September.
According to Gematsu, the theme for Tokyo Game Show 2022 is Nothing Stops Gaming. This is the official statement to announce the theme,
“We had to give up doing fun things one after another over these two years. How many times we thought, what happened to our days?
Even then, we still had games that kept us going. Thrilling plot twists, captivating and heated experience lightened up our everyday life. Games became our hope.
2022 is the year to show the real spirit of games. Tokyo Game Show has the mission to create our hope and beyond. Update our possibilities. Unprecedented excitement is always born out of something you have never imagined.
Let’s open the gate to the forefront of games. Give courage and enthusiasm to everyone. Show your love of games to each other.
For everyone to share the “great feeling of living in this era.” Let’s dive into the heart of game craze.
Nothing Stops Gaming!!!”
They also give a breakdown of the events schedule as it stands. Though in still uncertain times this can easily be subject to change. However, what do you think of this news? Are you excited or concerned about a return to in-person events? Conferences and events are something we all took for granted three years ago. We can hope it’s a sign of some normality returning.
