Tokyo Game Show 2019 is one of the biggest video game expos/conventions in the region. It is held annually in September in the Chiba prefecture of Tokyo, Japan.
A mecca for gaming, TGS is the place to be for Japanese video games. Yes, this includes Sony Computer Entertainment, Square Enix, Bandai Namco, and Capcom.
This year’s TGS has a wide variety of games along with their respective trailers. Because of this, we’ve decided to pick five of our favorite trailers from the expo. These are the trailers that just did its job and made us excited for the games.
Okay, we’ll start this list strong. Of course, we couldn’t do this list without the Final Fantasy VII Remake Trailer. While we saw more of the game at E3 2019, its trailer at TGS 2019 featured more characters as well as other features like mini-games.
This is the first time we’re seeing President Shinra, the Turks, summon sequences, and more scenes with Tifa and Aerith in the Remake. If the other trailers weren’t hyped enough, this the icing on the cake.
Next up is Nioh 2. Nioh 2 was initially announced at E3 2018 but wasn’t seen at this year’s convention. Seeing the new trailer in Tokyo Game Show just makes one hopeful of the second installment of the Souls-inspired action game.
Reports have mentioned that Nioh 2, is actually a prequel to the original game. The game also introduces the Dark Realm, the place where the yokai live, and can be explored by players. Along with gameplay and some story threads in the trailer, it also reveals that it will launch in Early 2020. What more can you ask?
Sega’s Yakuza has always been a fun game to just mess around and beat people up around a fantasy Japan. But Yakuza 7: Like A Dragon is a deviation from the beat ‘em up style that its predecessors have lived on. The latest addition to the franchise has a more RPG approach to it.
A story trailer was also released alongside the gameplay trailer which just makes it even better. Check out where the protagonist, Ichiban Kasuga began and his mishaps with the Yakuza.
Shenmue III is another game that brings with it excitement for fans. Being a part of the Shenmue franchise which began in 1999 for the Sega Dreamcast, the third installment has much to live up for.
While the TGS 2019 trailer doesn’t quite show the story or the gameplay, it does set the backdrop for the game by showcasing the setting and areas of the world. The trailer shows quite a vibrant Eastern countryside at various times of the day from bustling towns to the mountains and rivers.
Shenmue III is set for release on November 19, 2019.
Last but definitely not the least, is Death Stranding. If this is the first time you’ve heard of the game, it is the first game from Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions after their split from Konami 2015.
The trailer of the game at TGS 2019 continues to feature the protagonist, Sam Porter Bridges but this time there’s a bit of storytelling. It seems to set the tone for the plot and unveils more of Sam and who he is.
At the event, Kojima also showcased a 49-minute gameplay demo of the game.
With quite the number of games showcased and unveiled at TGS 2019, which are yours? Did they make our favorites?
