“Tokyo Game Show 2020” to be held online


On May 8th, the Tokyo Game Show (TGS 2020) issue that "to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, the annual event TGS at Makuhari Messe will be cancelled, and will be held it online.


The theme of TGS2020 is "The Future Comes First in Games". However, due to the influence of the new coronavirus, there was no comment from the management for a while afterwards, and many people must have predicted that the event would be cancelled this year.

But if TGS2020 will be held online, we can have the new style of joying the event, and it is good for the entertainment industry.



TGS has already announced its slogan of expanding the global Internet audience by collaborating with various popular influencers in Japan and abroad before the show to spread the news to game fans who can't visit the Makuhari, and by collaborating with domestic and international media partners and multiple video platforms to distribute information in Japanese, English and Chinese.


In light of this, the various effects of the new coronavirus have created the possibility of opening the door to a new virtual world in which even more people from around the world can participate. The true nature of cloud gaming, which allows users to share their time with other users around the world regardless of their location, has finally become an opportunity to spread and develop to the general public. There are high hopes for future developments.


Details will be announced on the official website (https://tgs.cesa.or.jp) and the press release from the end of May.
