TGS 2019 also saw a ton of great news and announcements, all of which you can check out in our Tokyo Game Show hub. This year’s show, which carried a theme of “One world. Infinite Joy” held 2,417 booths, all of which consisted of 655 different exhibitors. These booths covered a broad range of new games, service platforms, and even technology like smartphones, consoles, and PCs.

On top of setting a record attendance, the 2019 Tokyo Game Show also brought us tons of new information about games like Death Stranding, Nioh 2, and a slew of other great titles that we have to look forward to over the coming months. We will continue to keep our eyes on each of those games as the days count on, as we’re sure that the publishers will be showing off more and releasing more info as we move into the later months of the year.

We had our own team on the ground during this year’s Tokyo Game Show, so we can’t wait to share more about what they learned while on the scene.
