TGS 09: Game ads rock at the Tokyo Game Show

8:00 PM on 09.24.2009 // Colette Bennett

I hope you enjoyed our first gallery of game ads on the street in Tokyo, and while I expect to see many more when we go to Akihabara this Sunday, I was certainly impressed with the ones at TGS itself. As we walked up to the entrance, we were greeted by a row of beautiful long posters showing off some of the most memorable faces in the videogame universe and a Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker ad that extended for half a block. Nice!

Of course, the show floor also had plenty to ogle, from the staple inflatable chocobo and slime that are there every year to a giant Gundam head. It's a lot to take in, but I hope by seeing these you can get a feeling for what it's like to be there. I want ten foot game ads back in the US!
