Representatives of the Video Games Chronicle portal told about that. that this year the organizers of Tokyo Game Show 2022 were unable to gather a large number of players at their event. The figures in 2022 were almost 2 times lower than in 2019 before the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
The editors of Video Games Chronicle are convinced that restrictions on foreigners and people who have not reached the age of majority played a decisive role in such a low influx of visitors. The latter were adopted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This year the exhibition was held from 15 to 18 September. Many Japanese video game developers attended the event to showcase their products to gamers. One of the most sensational occasions was the announcement of three games Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
