All I can say is that I wish, SO MUCH, that I could be at Tokyo Game Show this year. After two years of being a virtual-focused event, we finally have a full physical event… and so for the first time in over a decade, I’m missing a TGS that I could have, in theory, attended.
The Japanese games industry certainly looks healthy at the moment. You only need to see the lineup of games that Nintendo was showing off in its most spectacular Direct yet to see that (scroll down to our summary of it if you missed the show itself earlier this week). Japan might not be dominating the AAA space any longer, but that’s okay since the more creative games are coming from the developers over there instead.
Finally, for this week, we’re sharing the covers of the Dee Dee Zine, which will be published next week. Don’t forget that everyone that supports us on Patreon, for as little as $1/month, gets full access to the magazine - a 56-page deal, filled with games, books, film and more, all from Japan. It’s the cheapest magazine subscription you’ll ever find, and, in addition, you’re directly supporting all the words we write each week on the site. Click here to support us
Have a great weekend, everyone! Play many amazing games!
