Tokyo Game Show 2020, originally to be held at Makuhari Messe in September 2020, was cancelled due to COVID-19.
It was announced on 26 June that instead, an online event, Tokyo Game Show 2020 Online, will be held from 24-27 September 2020, in which companies and organisations in the gaming industry will show off their latest updates via the official TGS channel and streaming programs, videos and websites.
Online round-table discussions covering the latest topics in games will also be hosted by the organizer, and live-streaming of e-sports tournaments and information on game-related goods will also be available. The indie game showcase, Sense of Wonder Night, will also be held this year. All of these online contents will be viewable for free.
TGS2020 Online will also host the online business matching systems for exhibitors and those involved in game-related businesses from 23 September, as a replacement for the traditional Business Day networking events.
Additional information and more details will be announced as details are finalized, on the official website ( https://tgs.cesa.or.jp/ ) and in press releases.
