Today the Japanese Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association, which organizes Tokyo Game Show, reached out with a press release to announce the publishers and developers that will attend the virtual reality version of the show.
Last year’s VR experience was considered a success having drawn 210,000 visitors who spent 27 minutes in the venue on average. A survey conducted among visitors determined that more than 90% of
respondents were satisfied with the event and over 98% intended to participate again.
This year, feedback from users and companies that participated last year has been taken to heart and the organizers aim to incorporate even more features to create new ways for participants to enjoy the event.
The setting is a “dungeon” which is a familiar environment for gamers, promising “thrilling adventures.” The organizers hope to “deliver an experience that is only possible in the virtual world, where the game show itself can be enjoyed in the same way as a game.” The theme is “diving into the unknown and going on an adventure.”
The list of participating companies is as follows, including sponsors.
ImaCreate / Cover / CAPCOM / Ministry of the Environment / CharacterBank / Gugenka / KOEI TECMO GAMES / KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS / KONAMI / Survios, Inc. / SQUARE ENIX / SEGA/ATLUS / DYSCHRONIA: Chronos Alternate / VARK / BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment / Pole To Win / Magic: The Gathering / Metaani
ZONe ENERGY / Boat Race Promotion Association / UCC
VR Apparel Sponsor
Access to the event will be free, and it’ll be hosted between September 15 and September 18, 2022.
Of course, this year Tokyo Game Show will return in person at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, near Tokyo, with the theme “Nothing Stops Gaming.” You can also check out the list of exhibitors for the main event and expect plenty of coverage here on Twinfinite, as we will be back to the show as well, ready to bring you all the latest news and content.
