About Tokyo Game Show 2014:

"Google will take the podium at the keynote session of TOKYO GAME SHOW for the first time.

Via Wikipedia: The Tokyo Game Show (東京ゲームショウ Tōkyō Gēmu Shō?), commonly known as TGS, is a video game expo / convention held annually in the Makuhari Messe, in Chiba, Japan. It is presented by the Computer Entertainment Supplier's Association (CESA) and Nikkei Business Publications, Inc. The main focus of the show is on Japanese games, but some international video game developers use it to showcase upcoming releases/related hardware. Like Germany's gamescom, the Tokyo Game Show allows the general public to attend during the final two days."

Grand Theft Auto V - Touch & Try at Tokyo Game Show 2013

Japan is getting a taste of the phenomenon that is Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto V at Tokyo Game Show 2013.

At its own Touch & Try pavilion at the show, Rockstar showed what it's like to navigate Los Santos and Blaine County. The company has built an incredibly detailed and lifelike world, which we are told will take inestimable hours of time sitting on your couch to fully explore and appreciate.

Those at the show are being given a taste and the consensus that we heard matches the enthusiasm that we're reading online.

Together with the opening of the Pokémon-themed exhibition "Pokémon the movie XY", Pikachu Cafe will open from July 19 through August 31 at Tokyo City View (observation deck area) at Roppongi Hills in Tokyo.
