Tokyo Game Show attracted 270,197 attendees this year, breaking its own record again – 2012 hit 223,753 people, while 2011 had 222,668 and 2010 had 207,647. TGS ran from September 19 - 22, and this year, both of its public days brought in more than 100,000 visitors each, another record number.
This year TGS expanded from eight halls to nine and was able to include extra exhibits, such as the Indie Game Area, Romance Simulation Game Area and Cloud Gaming Area. Smush them all together and you get the Indie Romance Simulation Cloud Gaming Area, which sounds like it could be the next breakout genre from Japan.
Next year's TGS is scheduled in the same space at Makuhari Messe, from September 18 - 21.
