RtP! to Cover the Tokyo Game Show 2014!

logo

We’ll be sending in the boys to tackle Japan’s largest video game show in September. Last year Lost Link almost met Kojima. What could happen this year? We’re hoping for some Persona 5 news as well as some Square Enix “we’ll always be in development” teases for KH3 or FFXV. And of course there’s always room for more Phantom Pain. We’ll also be checking out the indies and playable demos on the show floor. And Lost Link will most likely have the cosplay scene covered fully.

We’ll also be having a special guest fly down from Canada to join in our ultimate game coverage team. What mad things will he have to say? Probably nothing short of summer heat complaints.

TGS 2014 is September 20-21 2014 at the Makuhari Messe, in Chiba.


Summer Wonder Festival 2013

Yesterday I had a chance to stop by the Makuhari Convention center in Chiba to check out what Japan’s Wonder Festival was all about. The convention focuses on figures and lots of companies had booths set up to reveal upcoming releases. However, there were many other things being showcased and sold including steam punk gear, a giant King Ghidorah marionette, and some damn creepy statues to name a few. The halls also had some elaborate anime decorations (like the wall from Shingeki no Kyojin) and there was an anime concert at the end of the day. And of course, wherever crowds of otaku gather, cosplayers are not far behind.

Podcasts are still on hold for awhile but Lost Link did have time to stop by a convention in Chiba to film some Japanese cosplayers. Enjoy!
