TGS Not Canceled But Could End up Downsized
The earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan earlier this month have already had a profound effect on the games industry, with events being called off and games delayed or even outright canceled. Given the devastation, it’s hard to imagine this year’s Tokyo Game Show taking place without a hitch. And yet that’s the plan as of right now.
Kotaku Japan spoke with TGS management and were told, “Currently, we are not thinking of canceling or making the show smaller.” That doesn’t mean plans won’t change in the future, though. It was also said, “Depending on the situation from here on out, it is possible that the show is reduced.”
This year’s TGS is scheduled to take place from September 15-18.
