TOKYO GAME SHOW 2020 (TGS2020), scheduled to take place from September 24 (Tuesday) to 27 (Sunday), is now scheduled to take place online. TGS2020, which normally takes place in Makuhari Messe, is canceled. TGS2020 is organized by the Computer Entertainment SUpplier’s Association (CESA, whose director is Hideki Hayakawa), in collaboration with Nikkei Business Publications, Inc. (whose president and CEO is Naoto Yoshida) and Dentsu Inc (whose representative director is HIroshi Igarashi).
Due to the situation caused by the new coronavirus (COVID-19) on a global scale and since the situation cannot yet predict its consequences in Japan either, the organizer and the co-organizers have agreed to make this decision after considering that the main priority is the health and safety of visitors, exhibitors and shareholders. We ask for your understanding and cooperation.
We will give more information through the official website (https://tgs.cesa.or.jp/en/) and through a statement from the end of May.
