The event will be promoted in 10 official influencers’ native languages who are all active in the Asia-Pacific area and have a minimum of 100,000 social media followers apiece. According to the organizer, influencers, and creators get access to a private lounge where they can hang out as they test out games and post films.

At the annual four-day Tokyo Game Show, publishers and developers of video games showcase their future products and allow spectators a chance to play them far before their official release.

There are 787 exhibitors, an increase from 605 the year before, and 406 of them, including 30 online, are foreigners. General visitors can enter starting on Saturday, although the first two days are mostly reserved for media representatives and business leaders. General admission tickets, which cost 2,300 yen for a single day, are not available for purchase on-site and must be ordered online.

Along with E3 in the United States and Gamescom in Germany, the Tokyo Game Show, which debuted in 1996, is one of the three largest gaming events in the world.

Square Enix, the company that created the Final Fantasy series, Capcom, the company that created the Monster Hunter series, and Konami, the company that promoted the October release of its Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection, had some of the largest booths this year.

Visitors to the event get the opportunity to attend conferences where officials from companies like Valve, Microsoft, and Sony make game announcements and talk about the industry in addition to exploring the show’s numerous exhibitors.
