Cyberpunk 2077 Will Be Exhibited In Japan, Too

One of the biggest Japanese gaming conventions will also feature CD Projekt RED‘s game, Cyberpunk 2077.

America’s E3 is what Gamescom means to us Europeans or Tokyo Game Show (or TGS for short) for the Japanese people. Sure, the balance isn’t quite there, but outside the US, there isn’t a similarly big event like E3. Still, our focus now is on the Tokyo Game Show, as the other two events have been finished for the year.

Spike Chunsoft has started its exhibition website, which confirmed that the company will have its booth entirely themed around Cyberpunk 2077 at this year’s TGS. How is Spike Chunsoft related to CD Projekt RED’s game? The answer is simple – they will publish the game in Japan… The booth will have a special closed theatre where CD Projekt RED will present live gameplay of the Japanese version of Cyberpunk 2077, as the Polish devs think they shouldn’t just slap subtitles on the game but give it a full Japanese dub. There will also be a 1:1 (real-size) Yaiba Kusanagi motorcycle as well, which will also be in the game. People can take photos with it and the cosplayers. So Tokyo Game Show will have a big presence when it comes to Cyberpunk 2077, which is commendable – it’s good to see Western games not outright ignore the Japanese market.

Tokyo Game Show will be held in Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Tokyo, between September 12 and September 15. (Death Stranding will also be part of the TGS line-up this year, and we might see some big announcements from Sony and Nintendo, too.) Cyberpunk 2077 will launch on April 16, 2020, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but CD Projekt might also release the first-person cyberpunk RPG on the next-gen PlayStation (PlayStation 5?) and Xbox (Xbox Project Scarlett) as well.
