Tokyo Game Show 2023: Where to watch and what to look out for

Where to look for all the news coming out of TGS this year.

Tokyo Game Show 2023 stream

It’s time once again to check out a bunch of streams and showcases, as trailers abound at the Tokyo Game Show 2023. The event is being held in-person and online over the next few days, and there’s sure to be news on all kinds of games as we near the fall season.

Arguably, the TGS festivities have already begun. Sony and Nintendo aired both their big showcases ahead of the big event, and RGG Studio came out swinging with a release date for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth.

If you’re worried the trailer salvo is already spent, though, don’t be. Big names like Square Enix, HoYoverse, Sega, Atlus, Level-5, Capcom, and more are still on the docket.

The schedule and games shown at the Tokyo Game Show 2023

The 2023 lineup includes all those names, plus a few smaller ones you may not recognize. We’re likely to hear news about Level-5’s remaining 2023 titles, whatever HoYoverse may be putting together, and even Koei Tecmo’s upcoming Fate/Samurai Remnant.

Plus, a few extra trailers and dates are likely to trickle out throughout the week. This is the last real time for big game news before the fall season gets underway. A speak-now-or-forever-hold-your-streams, if you will.

So let’s take a look at the schedule ahead for the days to come and spotlight some streams to look out for. All times will be converted to US time zones, PT and ET.
