As previously reported that Sony would be holding a press conference at the annual ChinaJoy gaming convention, it has now also been confirmed that the company will indeed be attending yet another game show.
As many of us already know, Sony has been rather absent from a lot of gaming events this year, the biggest so far being E3. And although the company did supply a reasonable explanation, their presence has been missed despite giving fans an alternative “Nintendo Direct” inspired format, The State of Play. With a few major events still left in the year (Comic-con in just a day) it would appear that the company will be attending the annual Tokyo Game Show event, although how big of a presence is yet to be known.
Taking a look over on the official Tokyo Game Show Exhibition page we can see that Sony Interactive Entertainment will be hosting some exhibitions during the event.
If you can recall last year during the event Sony revealed the much rumored PlayStation Classic mini console, however its yet unknown if they’ll be hosting a conference or as the listing suggests simply hosting show floor exhibitions with demos and fan meetups. We can only guess that there will most likely be some demos for Final fantasy 7 Remake, which were present during E3 this year. And seeing that Death Stranding is launching in November with this event taking place in September, it’s possible that the title will be there with new footage though that it just pure speculation. The Editor in Chief over at SwitchONGamer is reporting however that Kojima Production will be there to help sell merchandise.
Kojima Productions is confirmed to be in the Merchandise Area of Tokyo Game Show 2019. Should be lots of Death Stranding merch for sale. Hopefully the man himself @HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN will be back too. pic.twitter.com/7UcZgUDHDd

Kojima does have a long history with the show and even last year debuted a short new trailer for Death Stranding, which you can watch below.
Outside of this many other third party publishers will also be making an appearance, few of which that do have exclusives deal with PlayStation so we will most likely see them around Sony’s designated showfloor area if they’re not already being shown off in their respective zones. TGS is set to happen this September between September 11th to to the 15th.
We will be sure to keep you all updated if anything changes or gets announced as we get closer to the event date. For now, stay tune for our coverage of Comic-Con, which begins this Thursday (June 18th.)
