The organizers of the Tokyo Game Show 2005 (September 16 – 18) have just announced a summary of details for this years event. As of August 4, 130 companies are committed to participation, with 1,429 booth units reserved. The number of exhibitors exceeds the 117 at the last year’s show and is the highest ever since the first Tokyo Game Show was held in 1996. We also noted they have booked 31 exhibitors from overseas, an increase over last year’s total of just 18, and that DoCoMo will participate again as a “Special Sponsor.”
From the T.G.S. Press Release
This year’s event promises to highlight many exhibits featuring the next generation platforms and game software released and scheduled for release in 2005 and 2006, along with software for the increasingly popular portable game systems and the cell phone market, which is emerging as one of the most important game platforms today. More displays than ever before will feature online PC games, which continue to gain ground in the home game machine market.
This event is organized by the Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association and co-organized by Nikkei Business Publications, Inc., and is held with the support of the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and special sponsor, NTT DoCoMo.
