    Tokyo Game Show

    Concept »

    Tokyo Game Show or TGS is an annual video game convention held in Chiba, Japan. It is considered a major industry event with considerable media coverage and industry attendance.

    Short summary describing this concept.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    The Tokyo Game show's first event was in 1996 and was originally held twice a year, but since 2003 the show has only been held once every year. 


    The Tokyo Game Show typically lasts over a 4 day period (Thursday to Sunday) with the first two days being only for journalists and the media, and the last two days being for the general public to have a chance to see and play some of the latest upcoming releases.
