Tokyo Game Show is the ultimate event spotlighting the next year's upcoming video games and is held annually at Makuhari, Chiba, a 20 minute train ride from Tokyo Station. In this episode, I return to TGS after a year off to check out what's changed.
This seemed to be the real champion of this years event.
In 2013 SONY had a VR headset unit on display, but the games weren't very realistic. It was more of a monitor inside goggles to me.
This year, SONY showed that it has some serious chops in the VR field with it new VR unit. They let me have a go at a multi-player game.
I tried out a new Japanese dance game where girls (or possibly confused boys) can become a cute idol and dance with their friends while playing a game using a sensor that registers foot steps.
To a popular idol tune, step into the circle when the beat comes your way. Miss it and your friends will probably pound on you for failing miserably. On this day though, I was with a bunch of guys who were just as confused as me. However, the game was rocking and a lot of fun.
The Most Amazing Booth Ever!
The Granblue Fantasy booth was absolutely gigantic! Ridiculous!
It's a social media game that has taken off in a big way in Japan, making it's way to the international markets later this year.
I'm not sure how to play the game, but what I do know is that their booth was another world.
The centerpiece was a full sized ship where cosplayers could pose for photos, even up in the sails!
