Tokyo Game Show 2018 is Asia’s biggest game convention for a reason! Not only did almost all the major Japanese video game developers showcase their upcoming titles, attendees from all over the world also flocked to Makuhari Messe for the show’s public days.
While we were overwhelmed with the amount of people at TGS this year, we didn’t expect the attendee count to be nearly 300,000! TGS organizers — Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association (CESA) recently announced that Tokyo Game Show 2018 set a new record of 298,690 visitors over all four days of the convention.
Most of TGS 2018’s visitors came from the two public days (Sept 22 and 23), with those days recording 107,310 and 122,063 attendees respectively. This year’s attendee count is also a big leap from last year; TGS 2017 had a total visitor count of 254,311.
