Tokyo Game Show 東京ゲームショウ


The 2014 edition of the Tokyo Game Show, Japan’s biggest video game exhibition, was held on September 18th through 21st at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.

Featuring 421 companies from 32 companies displaying 1,363 games, this year’s event was the biggest on record. Subtitled “Changing Games: The Transformation of Fun”, the event included games from all platforms and formats, including arcade, portable, smartphone, PC, and console games. Of particular note this year was the large number of booths featuring head-mounted VR games.

Konami’s booth displayed several notable games and presentations. Director Hideo Kojima took the stage to reveal the newest trailer and information for the upcoming “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain”, as well as a concept video for horror game “Silent Hills”.

The longest lines at TGS 2014 were for “The Evil Within”, the highly-anticipated survival horror game from “Resident Evil” series creator Shinji Mikami. The game was playable at the Square Enix, Sony Computer Entertainment, and Microsoft Japan booths.

Koei Tecmo’s booth attracted large crowds for a demo of “Hyrule Warriors”, while Square Enix’s booth gained attention for the “Dynasty Warriors”-style “Dragon Quest Heroes”, as well as “Final Fantasy XIV” and “Final Fantasy Type-0 HD”.

Capcom’s booth hosted a playable demo of the soon-to-be-released “Monster Hunter 4G” that allowed visitors a chance to take on Seruregiosu, the game’s main monster, as well as a playable demo of the recently-announced “Resident Evil: Revelations 2”. Visitors to Bandai Namco Games’ booth were greeted by statues of Godzilla and Shinryu, and could learn about games such as “Tales of Zestiria”, “God Eater 2: Rage Burst”, “Gundam Breaker 2”, “Godzilla”, and “Dragon Ball Xenoverse”. Also announced was a TV anime adaptation of “God Eater”, produced by animation studio Ufotable.

Thanks to the rapid increase in popularity of female-oriented games over the past few years, the “Romance Game Corner” area featured a number of unique exhibitions. At Voltage Inc.’s booth, female visitors could take part in a real-life version of the famous “kabe-don” dating game situation, while Sunsoft’s booth entertained women with cross-dressing male models lying on beds and whispering romantic phrases.
