The main visual and commemoration logo will be featured in a variety of situations as a symbol of the Tokyo Game Show 2016. Look forward to seeing them around.
Comment from the creator, Ippei Gyoubu,
“The game world is moving from monitors to headsets, and at some point gamers will probably even remove the headset. Is that world real or unreal? Games are creating the whole different concept of the world! The Tokyo Game Show has continually delivered to us the history of those revolutions, and is turning 20 this year. I can’t wait to go see a new revolution.
