tokyo game show 2015 05-21-15-1

We’ve gotten a look at this year’s main visual for Tokyo Game Show, the consumer electronics convention that goes down in September.

Featured above, you can view the new visual, which The Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association have revealed.  Artist Ippei Gyoubu handled the artwork (as he did in previous years), while this year’s keyword is “freedom,” which is reflected in the feelings of floating and flying. The expo’s theme for this year is also “let’s celebrate more games with freedom.”

This year’s Tokyo Game Show is being held in the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan, between September 17th to the 20th.

    While the west is screaming “OPPRESSION, SEXISM, RACISM!” at video games, Japan is shouting “FREEDOM!”

    This is a duckface I can actually deal with.

    Speaking of Freedom, hope they announce a sequel to freedom wars in TGS.

    Exactly my thoughts.
    It shows the big contrast going.

    But could it be intentional though?
    I wouldn’t think so, but maybe?
    Could this be a subtle japanese jab at the western side of the business?
    They have definitely earned the right to do it, they can ridicule, mock and act as high and mighty as they please since they really have shown the unparalleled level of freedom they have contrasting the oppressive west. They could rub it off all they want and the western side could not say a thing about it, if there was an index measuring creative freedom in the medium Japan is simply on another level and mostly because the west has dropped the ball so hard.

    Couple things I notice.
    The infinity 8 symbol is prominent.
    There’s a smartphone and a smartwatch there too alongside a game controller.
    And the controller has a layout that’s unlike any controller out there.

    Were more likely to get a “Delta” version than a sequel at this point though, besides first things first, where’s that Gravity Rush sequel?
