Seen@TGS: Not Level-5

Level-5 normally has one of the biggest and most populous booths at the Tokyo Game Show, but the publisher skipped out on the event this year in favor of just throwing its own deal next month. It was even bold enough to advertise its new Level-5 World convention on a pillar by the entrance to the Makuhari Messe.

TGS organizers probably didn't see it as a slight, however -- Level-5 did pay for booth space ... where it set out tables and chairs for use as a business meeting area by TGS visitors. We're sure that even though they weren't able to play a variety of Level-5 games (Ni no Kuni PS3 was at the Sony booth, at least), attendees thought highly of the company after enjoying the life-saving chairs it provided.
