Tokyo Game Show Begins with over 1,000 New Videogames on Display

TOKYO – The 21st edition of the Tokyo Game Show, one of the world’s biggest video gaming events, opened in Chiba on Thursday.

Around 600 companies will take part in the annual event that runs until Sunday, inviting visitors to view and try new games for various consoles and devices.

The main innovations for smartphones and virtual reality devices will also be showcased.

Sony was once again expected to be one of the main attractions of the event.

In the run-up to the event, the Japanese tech company announced its releases for 2017-2018, including “Call of Duty: World War II,” “Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom” and “Monster Hunter: World.”

Virtual reality technology was also expected to dominate this year’s edition, with companies presenting new releases including Sony’s driving simulator game “Gran Turismo Sport,” and Bethesda Softworks’ “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR.”

Although Nintendo has decided to stick to its policy of not participating in the Tokyo Game Show and focusing on its own events instead, Square Enix will showcase its new game “Project Octopath Traveler,” which it is developing for Nintendo’s new console, Switch.

Square Enix will present several games for smartphones based on its “Final Fantasy” franchise, while fans are hoping to see new versions of “Kingdom Hearts III,” its collaboration with Disney Interactive Studios.

Over 271,000 people attended last year’s event.
