Tokyo Game Show 2019, the last and biggest video game convention is right around the corner! Between the big announcements and the incredible surprises, here are the five things we’re looking forward to the most in the TGS 2019!
Like we’ve written previously, Marvel’s Avengers from developers, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal published by Square Enix isn’t shaping up as good as we want it too. That being said, this year’s, Tokyo Game Show is the last big stop for the game to show us what it’s got before it finally releases in May 2020. The build that we see in during TGS might just be the closest approximation of the games final product and may very well determine the future of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the videogame space. We’re gonna keep our fingers crossed on this one.
Sony and the Playstation 4 has been uncharacteristically absent for much of the recent videogame trade shows worldwide, most notably from the E3 show floor last June. Chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios, Shawn Layden has stated that this is because they’ve haven’t had anything new to announce for the current generation of systems. However, as the last and biggest videogame convention of the year it seems like the blue brand is bursting back onto the scene in a major way.
According to this report by Screenrant, Sony will have no less than 60 titles featured at the show most notable of which are Death Stranding, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Code Vein, Borderlands 3, Shenmue III, Concrete Genie and Nioh 2.
We first got a good look at Respawn Entertainment and EA’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at the EA Play Press Conference at this year’s E3. What we saw was some brilliantly methodical combat, innovative usage of force powers and an interesting setting and main protagonist. With the game set to release this November, we imagine EA will want to announce and reveal a few more things at Tokyo Game Show to help seal the deal in customers minds this fall.
Of course, not all of the announcements and news from Tokyo Game Show 2019 will be telegraphed in advance. There are still a few surprises out there that are left to be uncovered. For example, there are rumblings that a new Dead or Alive or Ninja Gaiden game for this generation maybe coming from Tecmo Koei. There’s also Capcom’s big announcement about a new or returning franchise that is not their previously announced Co-Op Resident Evil game Project Resistance. There might even be a new console teased or revealed with Sony’s PS5, Microsoft’s Project Scarlett and Nintendo’s New Switch Variants all possibly coming out.
Of course what would Tokyo Game Show be with the cool and quirky indie games? Historically, the TGS Indie Game Area has been home to the most interesting and off-the-wall games that challenge the limits of creativity and innovation. In the past we’ve seen, awesome and inventive hits like Fight Knight, The Coma, Devil Engine, RPG Time: The Legend of Wright and Neon Tail. There’s sure to be some awesome new gem at this year’s Indie Game Area in the hundreds of indies at the show that’s just waiting to be discovered.
