With COVID-19 soon to be a nightmarish memory, events are starting to take place again all over the world. This year, the premiere gaming convention in the world (come on, nobody really cares about E3 anymore), will be held in Japan once more! Tokyo Game Show 2021 is on baby!

…If you’re in the media that is.

The show’s management just put out a press release today to tell the gaming world that the show will be held live this year. Last year, the show took on a hiatus of sorts, as COVID-19 forced it to be cancelled and moved everything into an online-only format. This year, it looks like everything’s back to normal once more…which is a great sign of the world’s recovery too!

We’ll hopefully be going again so keep a lookout for our boots on the ground coverage this September. The editorial team’s got a ton of other Japan related material planned as well!

For those of you who can’t make it to the event, there’s also great news.

TGS 2021 will also be an online gig. The organizers are making it that demos, video previews and other special goodies will also be streamed online, so everybody will have a taste of what’s coming. It won’t be as awesome as being on the showfloor itself, but it’s still better than nothing!

Tokyo Game Show 2021 will be held from 30 September 2021 to 3 October 2021. I’m a bit confused at the extra days though, it used to be the weekend was for the public. Now that the public’s not allowed in, I wonder if the extra days might have other stuff in store for the press.

In the meantime, you can read up on our Tokyo Game Show 2019 coverage here…as well as everything that happened to us while we were off in Japan!
