Inside the Tokyo Game Show 2014!

RtP! had a wonderful time at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, due largely to our involvement as official press. We came equipped with multiple video cameras as well as a NEW MIC for interviews. Our passes allowed us to comfortably move through the crowded areas of the Makuhari event halls in order to check out what was going on and report on booth activities. There was a lot of big statues and booth creatures (dragons, monsters, Gundams and a massive Shenron) to catch the eyes of the many attendees. You could try out the new games with pretty booth girls to help you learn the controls. There wasn’t a lot of new big titles being shown or revealed at the show. We waited around the Sega booth for new Persona 5 footage that never came. How disheartening.

Mostly I’ve been attending conventions to film the cosplay scene but Niconico was an event I wasn’t even sure had cosplay. I heard about it from a friend and looking it up online I could only discern that it was an event aimed at making people smile. So I decided to check it out and soon discovered that not only was there cosplay but also many, many other things to see. Most Japanese conventions are largely spectacle with big booths to check out upcoming attractions and buy merchandise. While they’re not nearly as social as America’s, it’s still fun to check out the interesting displays. And that’s where Niconico surpassed all of the Japanese events I’ve attended thus far.
