The folks who run Tokyo Game Show 2023, the Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association, have revealed the expo’s main visual and theme.
Featured above, the newly revealed main visual was done by illustrator Kukka in his fourth consecutive year. Tokyo Game Show 2023’s main theme is “Games in Motion, the World in Revolution.”
“We play games sometimes as a way to relax and sometimes to escape from reality,” Kukka said in a press release. “Based on this year’s theme, I drew game characters reaching their arms to our physical world, with a composition as if you were drawn into the world of games.”
He added, “I tried to create the work to feel a lot of vibe and actions. More than anything, I wanted to feel a fun atmosphere there, so I used vivid colors and played with iconic game items such as explosions and other special effects!”
Tokyo Game Show 2023 is set to run from September 21st to the 24th at Makuhari Messe in Japan.
