Tokyo Game Show 2014 News, Previews, Trailers And More Round-Up
The Tokyo Game Show is complete, and we've rounded up all of our coverage resulting from the show.
Below you will find everything we've published (so far) from our time at the show, organized in easy to follow sections.
As you might have assume from the name Tokyo Game Show, the show is in Japan and focuses mostly on Japanese games. Many of the games shown aren't not guaranteed to come to North America. Our TGS Localization Wishlist breaks down the ones we hope will be localized for the United States.
We have plenty of pictures from the show (you can find the links below) but we also brought a camera and with the help of Tim Turi, put together a video tour featuring cameos from Hideo Kojima, and Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro, the creator of Deadly Premonition and the recently released D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die on Xbox One.

For Our Favorite Games Of TGS 2014 we picked eight titles that left strong impressions on us from the show. Some you might expect, like Final Fantasy XV and Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain, but there are a few surprises in there, too.
In the opinion piece, Offering A Final Fantasy XV Demo Is A Step In The Right Direction, we evaluate the recent playable demo announcement and why it's a good thing for Square and fans.
