Tokyo Game Show 2014: Photoreport + Video, Info

1Tokyo Game Show 2014: Photoreport + Video, Info

As you’ve no doubt already heard, the annual Tokyo Game Show is currently underway at the Makuhari Messe exhibition centre in Chiba Prefecture (yup, just like Tokyo Disneyland, TGS isn’t actually in Tokyo…).

It’s fair to say this year’s show is a little smaller than in years gone by, but there’s still plenty to see and do. If, however, you’re one of the millions of poor souls who can’t simply hop on a train to check it out, or only ever have a chance to see the show on its much busier public days, we have a little treat for you today: three minutes of video and a whole host of photos taken at Tokyo Game Show by our very own staff.

From Mario plushies to the GREE girls’ stage shows, there are all kinds of weird and wonderful things to take in at TGS this year, so we thought you might like a little peek inside during the press and business days. Some of the footage is admittedly a little rough, but we hope this will give you a taste of what Tokyo Game Show is all about.
