Tokyo Game Show's Online Replacement Scheduled For September

Tokyo Game Show's Online Replacement Scheduled For September

It's happening on almost the same dates as the original show.

Tokyo Game Show is back on for September. The 2020 show was canceled earlier this year in May, but the online version of the showcase has now been pencilled in for a late September start.

The online version of the Tokyo Game Show will begin on Wednesday, September 23, and will run through to the end of the week on Sunday, September 27. The website for the Tokyo Game Show Online has gone live as of earlier today, but there's currently no exhibitors or timetable available for the showcase.

As we mentioned above, the original Tokyo Game Show 2020 was canceled back in May. However the online replacement for the event takes place on almost exactly the same dates that the original event was slated for, beginning one day earlier on September 23, but still finishing on the same day as originally planned.

There's no games confirmed to be appearing at the revised Tokyo Game Show in September. There weren't any confirmed games for the physical version of the showcase before it was canceled, although the official Tokyo Game Show Online website says we can expect announcements from "major publishers" at the showcase.

The Tokyo Game Show was just one of many planned events from earlier this year to be ultimately canceled and rescheduled for an online-only event, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. GDC was one such event earlier in 2020, and Gamescom Online is set to take place in late August.

In the more immediate future of digital showcases, we've got Microsoft's Xbox Series X first party games showcase in July. There's currently no set date for the Series X games showcase, but we can expect games like Halo Infinite to make an appearance.
