With the exception of Tottemo E Mahjong Plus, all games in the line-up will be playable on the show floor. The all-female dungeon crawler Seisou no Amazoness, or Year of the Amazoness, was first announced one-and-a-half weeks ago in the September 12th, 2013, issue of Famitsu. It will be interesting to see how it plays when Arc System Works shows it off.

Also, Guilty Gear series creator and general director Daisuke Ishiwatari and BlazBlue series producer Toshimichi Mori will appear separately in Arc System Works stage events.

The diversity of Arc System Works’ Tokyo Game Show line-up makes it an exciting period for fans of the company and the games’ respective genres alike. Hopefully, when it arrives, the games will show plenty of promise.
