With this year marking the 25th anniversary of the iconic gaming event, Xbox will once again be present (in a virtual sense) for the show. According to the company, the digital conference will be curated “for players in Japan and across Asia,” and will take place on Thursday, September 30 at 5:00 a.m. EST.
“This year marks the 25th anniversary of Asia’s biggest gaming event, with the show again taking a virtual format,” the company said in their post. “The 2021 theme of Tokyo Game Show aims to emphasize the power of gaming to close the distance between people and carries with it the inspiring event tagline of ‘We’ll always have games.’”

For fans hoping to see some big reveals, though, don’t get your hopes up too high. Xbox noted that this show won’t have any “new global debuts,” but will instead be geared more towards the Asian Xbox community, and will have more relevant updates local to Japan and Asia. Despite that, there should still be some fun announcements and games shown off when the event kicks off at the end of the month.
