Tokyo Game Show 2023 Is Aiming To Be Its Largest Event Ever

Prominent brands like Xbox, Capcom, and many other are participating in the upcoming event.

Story Highlights

  • Tokyo Game Show 2023 is returning this year to be the largest event ever since the corona pandemic dominated the globe. The exhibition will reportedly use the complete Makuhari Messe venue.
  • The event reached critical acclaim last year despite all the restrictions in place, like the age limit, which has caused the exhibition this year to utilize the whole venue and lift many restrictions in place.
  • The event can also be attended by children under 12 and families, as there are family-friendly exhibitions. Foreigners can visit the venue easily due to the relaxed visa restrictions in Japan this year.
  • As announced, the exhibition will seemingly be held for four days straight, from Thursday, September 21 to Sunday, September 24, including a Business Day and Public Day. 

After small events for the last four years, Tokyo Game Show 2023 is returning to be the biggest ever in recent years. As officially revealed by the exhibition’s official page, the complete traditional Makuhari Messe venue will be used just like the olden times. The last year was quite restrictive for the event; only a limited amount of venue was utilized due to the coronavirus restrictions that were imposed to ensure the safety of the visitors.

Despite these restrictions, the venue was filled with exhibitors and game fans who had been waiting for the show to be held for real, and the excitement and excitement returned to Makuhari Messe,” states the CESA talking about last year.

The positive reception despite the limited venue and features in the last Tokyo Game Show event has seemingly inspired the CESA to announce that it is utilizing the whole venue this year. Many notable companies are reportedly seeking to show up at the exhibition, including Xbox, Capcom, SEGA, Bandai Namco, Square Enix, HoyoVerse, Koei Tecmo, Konami, and much more.

The high evaluation of the exhibition by exhibitors and visitors alike made us realize once again the high demand and importance of holding a real exhibition under any circumstances. This year, for the first time in four years, the entire Makuhari Messe will be used.”

To bring more good tidings to the table, the age restrictions have also been lifted for children under 12 since the dangers of the pandemic have simmered down. In other words, the venue will also see massive activity from kids and more families. Family-friendly exhibitions have also been restored, alongside a cosplay corner.

The number of allowed people in the exhibition hall has also been greatly increased to let many gamers visit the upcoming event in the near future. In the last four years, it was also harder for foreigners to visit the Tokyo Game Show events, but the steady lifting of the visa restrictions has also made it easier for foreigners to pay a visit. The games and content that will be shown at the event have also reportedly increased.

By expanding the content that can be experienced at the venue, we will be able to provide visitors with even more value from the real event than last year.”

The yearly Tokyo Game Show events have churned out among the biggest game reveals by various companies in the past. The recent coronavirus pandemic caused the shows to go online only for two years. The event was held publically again last year despite many restrictions to reach incredible acclaim. It is perhaps the reason to utilize the entire Makuhari Messe venue was made after a whopping four years.

We can also expect many enthralling reveals to come out of all the major participating brands that are entering the event this year. The exhibition will reportedly be held for four days straight, from Thursday, September 21 to Sunday, September 24, including a Business Day and Public Day. The exhibition is renowned among gamers for giant conglomerates showing off their latest projects in front of excited gamers.
