If you’re trying to keep up with the Tokyo Game Show 2023, you’re in luck. We’re watching all the streams for the big event live from Japan’s capital city, so you can check out the latest news and updates on upcoming titles from wherever it is you might be.
As expected, there’s a large number of Japanese developers at the Tokyo Game Show 2023, including Koei Tecmo, Bandai Namco, Sega, Capcom, and more studios responsible for some of the best JRPGs on Switch and mobile. It’s not just developers from Japan, though. We’re also set for updates from Xbox, 505 Games, and Hoyoverse, with the Pocket Tactics team especially excited about the prospect of a Zenless Zone Zero update from the acclaimed Chinese developer.
The event runs from yesterday, September 20, through until September 24, with plenty of special presentations live streaming across the wider world throughout. Already, we’ve seen the Japan Game Awards, with big gongs going to titles such as Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, and Sonic Frontiers. You can check out the full highlights on the official Tokyo Game Show YouTube channel.
All the Tokyo Game Show 2023 highlights so far.
We’re keeping an eye on all the streams from the Tokyo Game Show 2023, so you can check out the highlights below.
Koei Tecmo – Atelier Resleriana
Friday saw Koei Tecmo taking to the stage again, showcasing a gorgeous anime game. We got a prolonged look at the upcoming Atelier Resleriana, an exciting new entry into the popular RPG series that we’ve all come to know and love. It appears to be a detailed, Genshin-esque gacha game with heaps of beautiful 3D characters, turn based combat, lots of crafting, and a vibrant world to explore.
Atelier Resleriana is set to come to Android and iOS, and there’s rumors that we’ll get a PC and Nintendo Switch 2 port in the future, too. And, while we don’t have a global Atelier Resleriana release date yet, its Japanese release date is September 23, 2023 – so hopefully we don’t have too long to wait.
Koei Tecmo – Fate/Samurai Remnant
Koei Tecmo’s slot is entirely dedicated to the upcoming Fate/Samurai Remnant game. Set in Edo Japan, this stunning action RPG is bursting with detailed artwork, exciting combat reminiscent of the Warriors games, and plenty of cute cats for you to pet.
Level 5’s TGS stream showcased a wide range of amazing games coming to Switch soon. First up is Fantasy Life i: The Girl Who Steals Time, which looks to be an adorable mix of RPG and life sim, and we’re sure it’ll be up there with the best games like Animal Crossing when it finally debuts sometime this year.
Next is Decapolice, an upcoming detective also slated for a 2023 release. Featuring turn-based combat, an intriguing, neon-lit world, and plenty of cases to uncover, it looks like it’s going to be joining Master Detective Archives as one of the best detective games on Switch.
We also got a peek at the mecha-madness of Megaton Musashi: Wired, as well as the beautiful, anime-themed soccer game, Inazuma Eleven: Victory Road. We’re not sure when these two will be hitting the shelves, but we hope to hear more soon.
Sega / Atlus
The Sega / Atlus stream started the way all good Sega streams should. Yes, we’re talking about Sonic. We saw some more of Sonic Superstars, with the blue blur’s upcoming 2D title’s release date of October 17. The host played the version available to those attending the event in person, showing off some of the possibilities of co-op play in the latest in a long line of Sonic 2D titles.
Next up was some news from Sega’s overseas offshoots, including the exciting update that the three top tiers of Japanese soccer are coming to Football Manager 24. We can expect more news on FM24 soon, as the touch version heads to Switch and mobile (through Netflix games) early 2024.
Atlus then followed up with some new gameplay footage from Persona 5 Tactica, giving further insight into how the tactical element works in this spin-off of the popular series, as well as sharing details on the Japanese special editions set to release alongside the digital version of the game.
While a little light on Switch and mobile announcements, we did get a few updates. Marvel Puzzle Quest is set to get some new features and a reward program for its tenth anniversary, with fresh content arriving in the coming months. We also saw a little more of Eiyuden Chronicles: Hundred Heroes, with the panel from 505 detailing more of the in-game lore, combat systems, and characters you’re going to meet.
This Reverse: 1999 special program hosted by members of the game’s voice cast gave us a closer look at some of the game’s characters and gameplay features, including Apple, who appears to just be a red apple in a necktie. Oh, also the developer finally revealed the Reverse: 1999 release date!
