Tokyo Game Show (TGS) is one of Japan's largest game festivals.
Recently, TGS has been held online or for media and influencers due to the new coronavirus, but TGS 2022 will finally reopen to the general public!
And the official website for visitors opened on Tuesday, July 6, 2022!
The website for visitors is now open!
TGS2022 will be held from September 15 (Thu) to 18 (Sun), 2022, just over two months away.
The official website for visitors to Makuhari Messe, the real venue of the event, opened on July 6 (Wed.)!
Along with this, the main visual was unveiled.
The main visual for TGS2022 was created by illustrator Kukka (@hamukukka ), as he did last year.
The main visual depicts the theme for 2022, " Games will never stop. and will appear in various locations as a symbol of TGS2022!
We have received a comment from Kukka about his thoughts on this illustration!
Comment from Mr. Kukka
I was conscious of using colors with a pop image to create an energetic impression.
I felt that the interaction and connections in the game were becoming more and more commonplace, and the idea was to express this, but it was difficult to express and draw the connections in the illustration.
It was fun to include make-up motifs based on images from the game's character makeup, etc.
In addition, 465 companies from Japan and abroad ( as of July 6) are scheduled to exhibit at this year's TGS, far exceeding the originally expected 1,500 booths, which have now expanded to 1,902 booths!
On the visitor site, a "venue map" and online contents such as "Steam Special Site" and "TGSVR 2022" have been prepared, and we can't stop being excited about it!
81 titles to be exhibited in the Indie Game Selection!
This year, out of a record number of 583 entries from 56 countries and regions, 81 carefully selected titles will be exhibited at the "Indie Game Selection Exhibition"!
In addition, the game idea presentation event " SENSE OF WONDER NIGHT" will be held online again this year on September 16 (Friday)!
Last year, " Blind Drive," a "VR for your ears" game developed by Lo-Fi People of Israel, in which you drive a car while blindfolded and relying on sound, won the grand prize and surprised us with its new game idea.
We can't wait to see more unique creations this year, and for TGS to be a real venue!

With the release of the TGS2022 visitor website and the main visuals, you may feel that the time has finally come for the opening of this year's event.
