    Even more gaming goodness


    TOKYO GAME SHOW 2013, held by the Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association (CESA;
    Chairman: Shin Unozawa) in cooperation with Nikkei Business Publications, Inc. (Nikkei BP;
    President & CEO: Kohei Osada), hereby announces the number of expected exhibitors and their
    names as of July 1, as well as ticket information.
    As of July 1, as many as 186 companies and organizations are expected to participate in the
    event this year, which exceeds last year’s 171 at the same period. Of these 186 exhibitors, 52 will
    participate from overseas, and this number is expected to eventually top 83, which is the final total
    number of overseas exhibitors recorded last year.
    Sweden and Switzerland will make their debut at the international pavilion. Countries and regions
    including China, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Luxembourg, Macau, the
    Netherlands, Poland, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, and the United States will also
    participate in the exhibition.
    In the “Asia New Stars Area”, which was newly created last year, innovative companies represent
    Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam (continued participation from last year), as well as companies
    from the Philippines and Singapore (newcomers) will open their booths.
    *See the attachment for the list of exhibitors.
    As an added attraction, we will set up the “Indie Games Area” for independent game developers
    this year, and we are now in the process of selecting applicants who will exhibit their work. We
    expect that more than 30 exhibitors or more will open booths in this area, many of them come from
    overseas.
    In addition, we will newly create the “Cloud Gaming Area” and “Romance Simulation Game Area,”
    which have already contributed to drawing attention from a large number of newcomers.
    TOKYO GAME SHOW 2013 will be held just prior to the launch of new gaming platforms. Don’t
    miss the latest information provided globally from Tokyo regarding computer entertainment for all
    kinds of platforms in different genres.

    Two most likely announcements:

    1. Release date
    2. 3rd party exclusive from Platinum Games

    CBOAT had referred to there being a lot of courting of Japanese Studios so perhaps somea dditional collaborations to be announced as well. It will be odd for MS to be announcing release date for a console and games from Japanese devs in Japan when Japan ain't getting the Xbox for, probably, a year.

    I disagree on the "odd" part. It'd take them longer than that to develop a game for the XB1 so it kind of makes sense that they've been courting Japanese developers because they want to release some Japanese "Titanfalls" on launch over there. They've probably had dev kits in their hands already.

    They announced the 360 release date in Japan, so there is some precedence there.
