Tokyo Game Show 2021 will be kicking off at the end of the month, and details about which companies and games will be there in some capacity have started filtering in of late. At the same time, so, too, have details about who won’t be there- like Nintendo.
The Japanese company recently took to Twitter to confirm in no vague terms that it won’t have any exhibits or booths at TGS 2021 in whatsoever, so head into the show with your expectations firmly in check. Of course, that doesn’t mean that there won’t be any Switch games at the show- third party publishers might still bring their upcoming games, like Square Enix is doing with Project Triangle Strategy. We might also see more of Shin Megami Tensei 5 during Atlus’ mega-stream, though that hasn’t yet been confirmed.
Of course, some leaks have suggested that Nintendo has another Direct planned for some time in September, so perhaps the month won’t go by without too much Switch-related news after all. Again though, that remains unconfirmed for now.
Tokyo Game Show will kick off on September 30. The likes of Capcom, Xbox, Square Enix, Koei Tecmo, Konami, Atlus, and many more have confirmed they will be attending.
