Tokyo Game Show 2012 to connect your smiles through games


All the buzz right now is about next week's E3, but I've already started early planning for this fall's Tokyo Game Show, set to take place September 20-23 in the Makuhari Messe convention center. It's never too early.

The Computer Entertainment Supplier's Association has decided on this year's theme: "Connecting Your Smiles Through Games." They never disappoint with the goofy themes.

Along with this theme comes this year's main visual, as seen above and in our gallery. Artist Ippei Gyoubu is back again for the third year with his freaky looking future girl. He says that "She" is jumping out of a world of games, reaching out to you with a smile in pursuit of making connections with people. In the full visual, "She" wears a variety of devices to represent games, and she's blasting off from her home in cyberspace to deliver the "memory of smiles" to us. 

You can't make this sh*t up.

This year they're expecting 195,000 visitors, 1,550 booths and 180 companies to show up at TGS 2012. I'm looking forward to connecting my smiles there later this year.
