Best of Tokyo Games Show 2019

Commonly referred to as TGS, the Tokyo Games Show is an annual event on video game hardware and software, focusing on primary Asian developers’ and publishers’ upcoming work. While this year’s event focused on existing games, it was exciting to unravel them and get a closer look.

Death Stranding

Death Stranding was easily the highlight from this year’s event. Hideo Kojima’s long awaited game, starring Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead has left more questions than it has answered, but the nearly hour long gameplay from Death Stranding helps to shed some light on the enigmatic directors vision. The graphical fidelity of the Decima Engine makes the already lush environments ooze details from even the tightest corners. There is still a shroud of mystery regarding the games story.

Final Fantasy VII

It feels like it’s been forever since Square Enix revealed that the company was working on releasing a remake for the critically acclaimed Final Fantasy VII. And at TGS 2019, we got a chunk of uncut gameplay, showing off the new combat mechanics, the characters and of course the graphics. The footage shows the game from the start leading to the first boss with some additional mini games and a sewer section. The Final Fantasy VII remake is slated to launch on March 3, 2020.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

If you’re a Dragon Ball Z fan then you have been waiting for this game forever. With an art style that resembles the anime, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is looking like it’s going to be an honest adaptation of what we grew up with. Bandai Namco showed off gameplay of Vegeta and Teen Gohan at the event. The game is a 3D isometric fighter with open world, survival and story elements to really make you feel like you are in the Dragon Ball Z universe. The game is slated to drop on January 16, 2020.

Resident Evil Project Resistance

After relishing the successes of the Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom decided to keep things light with their latest instalment in the series. Titled Project Resistance, this online multiplayer game will pit you and three other players against an opponent player who can unleash zombies on the team. The gameplay mechanics are pretty much ripped from the recently released Resident Evil 2 with one small caveat, the role of the opponent player is similar to  old school turn-based RPGs.

Shenmue III - Spirit of the Land

Dreamcast and Sega fans have been clamouring for a Shenmue III since the early 2000s and any bit of footage creates hype like no other title. The same was felt during the trailer for Shenmue III- Spirit of the Land, which debuted at TGS 2019. While the trailer was mostly a cinematic look into the game world, the game is slated to launch on November 19, 2019.
