Tokyo Game Show 2016’s two business days are over, and this Saturday the venue opens its doors to the general public! Here’s a teaser of what’s on show!

The hint’s in the name: Tokyo Game Show is a celebration of Japanese gaming, with all the newest and most quintessentially Japanese games on show. However, the event also has a decidedly international air, which is immediately apparent upon approaching the Makuhari Messe event center in Chiba!


▼ The logo for this year is bright and colorful, and can be spotted on T-shirts and merchandise like mouse pads. It’s also the 20th anniversary of the event this year!


▼ Soooooooo cute! Until you remember there’s a sweaty person inside that suit…


▼ Any Monster Hunter fans in the house?


▼ Persona 5 is due for release in North America and Europe in February next year!


▼ Twitch had a much bigger presence than last year – let’s hope lots more Japanese gamers will take up streaming via the platform!



▼ It’s Arnie!


▼ Nioh is another game that will release in February next year – worldwide!



▼ Yakuza 6 is out in December in Japan, but how long do we have to wait for a Western localisation?


Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is another massive new entry to be released in February – which is looking to be an amazing month for gaming! Let’s hope our wallets can take the hit! We played a demo of the game and gave our thoughts about it in our Resident Evil 7: Biohazard post!

And of course, there was plenty of beautiful cosplay to ooh and aah over! Check out our beautiful booth ladies post!


▼ The Indie developer section is a great place to check out if you’re into hidden gems.




▼ And there’s also plenty of awesome merchandise on sale this year again, too!

Good luck braving the queues and crowds if you’re heading to Tokyo Game Show this weekend! What big upcoming releases are you most excited about?
