September’s Tokyo Game Show officially going digital

Well, we’ve moved past the summer, and now we’re looking at the first of the big fall shows to make changes. Tokyo Game Show is going digital.

The show must go on

So we just told you about a potential boost for Halloween Comicsfest 2020. That’s because Free Comic Book Day 2020 was “postponed” in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. That’s a postponement that’s rapidly looking more like a cancellation however, and so the only other free comics event on the calendar would then be October’s Halloween Comicsfest.

That being the case, it’d be easy to see how it’d get a little more attention. Well, if it actually happens that is. And as of about five minutes ago, that’s seeming a little less likely. That’s because one of the bigger video game industry conventions of the year, the Tokyo Games Show has officially been cancelled… in physical form.

The convention will be doing something that E3 failed to accomplish, in that it’ll be going digital. So while there will be no real-world TGS to attend this year, there will indeed be online presentations and announcements.

Announcements as to exactly what that will entail will presumably be coming up, since there kind of are none right now. But the effective cancellation of the event itself is news enough, and in more ways that one.

With TGS taking place at the tail end of September, could this cancellation mean that fall fan-shows like the NYCC and PAX West might see outright cancellation? Lots to consider with all that’s going on.

So if you were planning on attending anything in the fall, stay tuned.
