A year ago, just around this time, it started raining news of cancellations of major video game fairs. It's been twelve months, but not much seems to have changed. The Tokyo Game Show, announcing its 2021 schedule, in fact, he announced that the event will take place mainly online. 

This was announced by CESA (Computer Entertainment Supplier's Association), which also confirmed the start and end dates of the event, which will be on 30 September and 3 October 2021. 

According to the first outline plan, the streams will run between 10:00 and 24:00 local time, so between 3:00 and 17:00 Italian time. The time between 19:30 and 23:00 local known as Golden time, will likely be the one that gets the most attention from the public.

CESA will provide English interpreters for all conferences, and individual exhibitors will have the opportunity to add additional translations. Even though the event will be mostly online, CESA is looking to insure a physical event at the Makuhari Messe Event Hall, open to the press and influencers only.
