Foreign Wrap-Up: TGS 2015 Edition

Tokyo Game Show | Foreign Wrap-Up: TGS 2015 Edition

Game conventions are always exciting. E3 is a time to see the major studios’ upcoming titles. PAX is a place to find out about cool indie projects on the horizon. At Tokyo Game Show, we get to see the future of Japanese games–which, if you haven’t noticed, are kind of our thing around here. The past few days have been a little crazy with all the trailers and announcements coming out. Our contributors worked hard, sacrificing sleep and sanity, to bring you as much news as we could as it broke during the overnight hours.

So, as has apparently become a custom during convention time, the oprainfall Retro Commercial Research Team–in other words, me–will be showing off some of the trailers unveiled during TGS last week. Let us know which ones you’re looking forward to.

Here are the highlights from the past week:
