The full lineup of participating publishers for Tokyo Game Show 2023 has been announced and there are some big names attending. This year’s event will see the likes of Square Enix, Capcom, Atlus, PlayStation, Bandai Namco, Konami, Arc System Works and more attend the show, which promises to be its “largest ever” event this year.
For the first time in four years, Tokyo Game Show will use the entirety of its usual Makuhari Messe venue in Japan. Last year’s event also took place in person but it was a much smaller event that used up less space in the venue due to concerns surrounding the pandemic. Most of those restrictions seem to have lifted now and it sounds like Tokyo Game Show is going really big this year with a promising list of publishers and developers showing off games.
The full lineup of attending publishers for Tokyo Game Show 2023 is as follows:
- Arc System Works
- Bandai Namco
- Koei Tecmo
- Kojima Productions (merchandise area)
- Level 5
- Square Enix
- PlayStation (indie area)
- Nintendo (business area)
The CESA, the organisers of Tokyo Game Show, released a statement this week talking a bit about this year’s event:
“Despite these restrictions, the venue was filled with exhibitors and game fans who had been waiting for the show to be held for real, and the excitement and excitement returned to Makuhari Messe. The high evaluation of the exhibition by exhibitors and visitors alike made us realize once again the high demand and importance of holding a real exhibition under any circumstances.”
TGS 2023 will be held for four days from 21-24 September and feature panels, presentations, hands-on time with games for attendees and more. While Kojima Productions is listed on the lineup, it will only be present in the merchandise area. Meanwhile, PlayStation will be present in the indie area while Nintendo will only have business meetings at the show without a public area.
