Tokyo Game Show 2022 has opened its official website, which confirms a whole bunch of exhibitors, including a number of heavyweight publishers. Said publishers will be part of the ‘General Exhibition’, meaning that they’re going to have a relatively significant presence during the event.
However, going off this initial list, it seems as though Sony won’t be at the show in force. Neither Sony Interactive Entertainment or PlayStation are listed under ‘General Exhibition’. Sony Interactive Entertainment does show up further down the exhibitors page, but it’s filed under the ‘Indie Game Corner’, which we can only assume is a section of the showfloor dedicated to indie titles and developers. Curious.
Anyway, here’s a quick list of the event’s biggest publishers, relevant to PlayStation:
- THQ Nordic
- Koei Tecmo
- Square Enix
- SEGA / Atlus
- Bandai Namco
This year’s Tokyo Game Show runs from 15th September to the 18th September, and it’s all but guaranteed that we’ll be getting updates on a lot of upcoming Japanese games. That said, TGS isn’t the juggernaut that it used to be. Especially when it comes to announcements that are PlayStation-related, many Japanese publishers have adopted a more Western-focused approach, and so TGS no longer presents the best opportunity to make headlines.
