The full Tokyo Game Show 2021 schedule was revealed last week and in it, we learned that Xbox would make a virtual appearance by way of a showcase. Now Microsoft has revealed when that showcase will air.
In a new blog post made today on Xbox Wire, the company announced that its Tokyo Game Show virtual stream will air on Thursday, September 30, at 6 p.m. JST, which is 5 a.m. EST/2 a.m. PST on September 29.
The company revealed a few details about what to expect during the stream too.
"As games close the distance between people, we invite our players to celebrate the joy and community of gaming with us," the blog post reads. "Similar to last year, this will be a show curated for our players in Japan and across Asia. Expect a celebration with our Asia community and local relevant updates, though no new global debuts should be expected."
Xbox also says to expect the "latest regionally relevant updates on previously announced games coming later this year." Basically, you probably won't be hearing "World Premiere" during the showcase.
That doesn't mean the rest of the Tokyo Game Show event won't feature premieres and the like, though. Last year's show featured the first gameplay of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, new Monster Hunter Rise gameplay, and more.
You can visit the official TGS 2021 site for the full livestream schedule if you're curious about what you can expect beyond Xbox's stream. The Xbox stream will be available as part of the main TGS 2021 show, but it can also be viewed on Xbox's social channels in Japan, Korea, and China.
While waiting for this TGS Xbox stream, check out everything announced during Xbox's latest showcase, which aired during Gamescom 2021. Read IGN's breakdown of everything announced during the Gamescom 2021 Opening Night Live showcase after that.
