Tokyo Game Show 2017: Date, Start Time & Location



The last major summer gaming event has come and gone. Gamescom, Germany’s annual video game trade fair, was packed with exciting games and announcements, including the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition, launching on November 7.

Now it’s time to put down the controller and return to school … Nah, just kidding. We all know you have your console and a crappy 30-inch TV all packed and ready for your dorm.

Interested in copping new games this fall? We’ve got some suggestions for you, divided by platform — PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.

But that’s not all to look forward to in the coming season. Next month is the return of another annual expo: Tokyo Game Show, Japan’s largest gaming event that garners massive worldwide attention. TGS last year housed 345 exhibitors from 36 countries, with the number of oversea exhibitors exceeding domestic.
