Tokyo Game Show 2021 Online


This year's Tokyo Game Show is still a ways off, but the folks behind it have made the call to go virtual once again. This year's slogan translates to "We'll always have games," and those games will be on full display over the course of Tokyo Game Show 2021 Online as it runs from September 30 to October 3 of this year. 


To help make things as interactive as possible, Tokyo Game Show 2021 will team up with platforms to provide free demos for fans to play online. For those looking to keep up with all the news and footage throughout TGS, there will be live streams on multiple global services—from YouTube and Twitch to niconico, Facebook, bilibili, and beyond—complete with English language options. 


One of the big differences between this year's online event and last year's is that Tokyo Game Show 2021 will have some in-person aspects, with influencers and members of the press able to check out press conferences, booths, and demos at the Chiba-based Makuhari Messe event hall. 


The official website for this year's event is now live.
