The cell phone in this year’s Tokyo Game Show promo art seems very intentional

Mobile gaming!

The Tokyo Game Show has revealed this year’s promo art meant to go with the theme of “playing games with more freedom,” hence the high flying hover board and, presumably, Puzzle & Dragons stuffed mobile phone. And whatever offerings Konami and Sega and rapidly abandoning traditional game publishing to provide.

It’s still my favorite piece of recent TGS art, second maybe to last year’s.

TGS 2015 runs September 17 through 20 and hopefully Brett Makedonski and myself will be back in Japan to bring you all the hottest carousel scoops. I’m actually planning this right now while drowning in E3. Bless.

Check out the last five years’ worth in the gallery below.
