Saiga NAK attended TGS 2019's business day that took place on September 12th, in Chiba!
This is just the first of a series of articles on TGS 2019 that we'll be bringing to you all, and we'll also have members heading to the general admission day, so keep your eyes open as we upload more of our adventures at TGS 2019!
We'll be breaking down one of the biggest game events in the world especially for you!
Off to PS4 Play Area!
As expected, the PS4 area was buzzing the most, with the Trials of Mana Remake playing on the main display!
Granblue Fantasy: Versus - A Granblue Fantasy fighting game set to be released in February of next year.
Sakura Wars - a Saiga NAK favorite!
Final Fantasy VII Remake is the title everyone has been waiting for, and is probably the most anticipated title of next year, and Square even provided a demo trail available to play at TGS!
Even for business day, where admission to the general public wasn't happening, there was about a 50 to 60 minute wait, so one can only imaging how long the wait will be during the general admission days will be... Pro Tip: decide what games you want to play before going to cut down on waiting time.
Square Enix Booth
Square Enix was, of course, insanely pushing their FFVII remake, but that wasn't the only game they had brought to show off!
Square Enix also made sure to push popular titles such as Dragon Quest 11 for the Switch, and the remastered version of Romancing Saga 3.
Sonic & Mario Come Together for the Olympics
Sega presented their Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics game, which brought in a decent audience!
And here we have Sakura Wars! A classic from the Sega generation is getting a makeover for its revival into a new gaming era!
Not only games: DoCoMo Booth
Japan's largest mobile carrier NTT DoCoMo came out to TGS 2019 to promote their efforts into 5G territory! With 5G's speeds, the game industry will also undoubtedly see advances and possibilities that have never been seen before, allowing more and more innovation into the future.
While spectators view on, discussions go on on-stage about 5G and mobile gaming.
There's also something on the table...
The character is from the Nyanko Great War, a tower battle defense game that has really gained popularity in the past couple of years. Although a simple game that is essentially one player that doesn't require data usage, who knows what could come with the introduction of 5G!
For Game Changers
"The evolution of games is a fight to break the limits..." couldn't be more right. And with that, the future sees more limits being overcome.
DoCoMo prepared a huge booth with DoCoMo girls promoting 5G.
Booths for Game Makers
TGS not only brings game players, but game makers from every corner of the world. These booths included companies promoting game server engines...
... to lottery services that anyone can enjoy!
Companies offering support for game development also had booths set up at the event!
Gaming news sites from abroad also appeared, leading to an interesting variety of participants.
Entertainment Companies also make an appreance!
Based in Shibuya, Tokyo, Stardust Promotion also participated in TGS 2019!
Stardust Promotion recently made their way into the eSports world by getting started with eSports management. Esports players, commentators, and streamers are essentially entertainers, right?
Samsung Promotes their SSD
Samsung, famous for their Galaxy phone series, brought their Samsung SSD with them to the event. Last month, when we attended E-Sports Festival Hong Kong 2019, Samsung decided to show off their smartphone line and VR tech. Changing your promotions to your audience is always a smart move.
"Make your storage cute! says the samsung girl. We have no choice.
We even recently asked women at our company about what disappoints them in a man:
- My boyfriend had an HDD instead of an SSD...
- My boyfriend's PS4 didn't even have an SSD hooked up to it...
So guys, you know what that means. You better get your hands on a good SSD!
Bandai Namco's Huge Booth
Fittingly, the area was filled with the company's signature orange color.
Probably the most exciting part of this article for our older fans would be this huge model of a Tamiya Mini 4WD Avante! Definitely one of those things you only see in Japan.
Orange! Orange Bandai Namco girls everywhere!
Even business day had some cosplay action! Here, we have Mia from Code Vein!
Bandai Namco definitely understands the importance of fan service with a dedicated photo booth!
Capcom makes an appearance with Monster Hunter
Such Power! Hunters, gather quickly!
Monster Hunter girls passing out posters for our swag bag!

With smile like that, who wouldn't take a poster?
