Tokyo Game Show 2019 dates, schedule and reveals so far

Japan’s answer to E3 is currently in full swing but there’s still much more to come for Death Stranding, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and more.

To be honest we’re being generous comparing the Tokyo Game Show to E3, but it certainly used to be just as important – before the collapse of the Japanese games industry during the last generation.

Japanese developers have seen a major resurgence in recent years though and so the Tokyo Game Show has also become more important again, with the first day having major reveals for Death Stranding, Project Resistance (the new Resident Evil multiplayer spin-off), and Final Fantasy VII Remake.

But here’s the best of the rest of the reveals so far, as well as a schedule for each company on what to expect over the next few days.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon Western trailer

Beyond the headliners there are plenty of other games trying to share the limelight at the Tokyo Game Show, with Yakuza: Like A Dragon getting its first Western trailer – although there’s still no release date more specific than 2020. It’s mostly a story trailer and doesn’t show any of the new turn-based combat system or the go-karting that’s just been added to the Japanese website.


R-Type Final 2 gameplay

This year’s Tokyo Game Show was the first outing for the improbably named R-Type Final 2, which is being made by several ex-Irem developers after a successful Kickstarter. The video above is from Japanese mag Famitsu and looks exactly like what fans were hoping for in terms of a new sequel to the king of 2D shooters. The game is due out on all formats at the end of next year.


Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Rajang release date

Monster Hunter expansion Iceborne has already been a huge hit in Japan, going straight to number one with over a quarter of a million sales. As Capcom promised though it will have its own stream of free DLC upgrades and the first is going to be Rajang, one of the strongest creatures in the game and a firm fan favourite (not least because of its Dragon Ball Z homage). He’ll be out on 10 October, although the PC version of the expansion still isn’t out till January.


Shenmue III Tokyo Game Show trailer

As unlikely as it still seems, Shenmue III is scheduled to come out on 19 November for PlayStation 4 and PC, so you’d expect it have a big presence at the Tokyo Game Show. That’s exactly what’s happened and has brought with it a brand-new Western trailer called Spirit Of The Land. It’s still just a flyover of some of the game world though, with nothing that looks like actual gameplay, which is a little concerning at this stage in the game.


Nioh 2 release date

The sequel to the excellent SoulsBorne-esque Nioh has gone a bit under the radar so far, but Koei Tecmo has confirmed it’ll launch early next year (which seems a bit of a risk given how busy that period is). It’s got a new Tokyo Game Show trailer too, which features an awful lot of animal spirits and monsters. It looks good though and should at least partially make up for the fact that FromSoftware’s Elden Ring won’t be at the Tokyo Game Show this year.
