The Top 5 games to look out for during Tokyo Game Show 2017

By Dale Bashir on Aug 22, 2017

The Tokyo Game Show has always been the best place for Japanese developers to showcase and in some cases, let fans try out brand new, upcoming Japanese games. This year's Game Show is no different. The Tokyo Game Show 2017 is less than a month away and with our very own Super TGS Contest underway, here are our top 5 games to keep your eyes out for in this year's Tokyo Game Show 2017:

1.Monster Hunter World

The first game on our list is the highly anticipated Monster Hunter World, and Capcom recently announced that the game will have a playable demo on the show floor. If you are a true hunter, you would travel across the world to get your hands on the latest instalment in the Monster Hunter series. They've been hyping up this game during E3 and even the Playstation Experience in KL, but TGS will the only place you get to actually try the new Monster Hunter.


2. Dragon Ball FighterZ

With new announcements made every other month this year, Dragon Ball FighterZ is soon becoming the best Dragon Ball game in a long time. With the latest announcements being Android 16 being a playable character and that Super Saiyan Blue would be a transformation available for Goku and Vegeta, who knows what else could be announced at Japan's biggest gaming expo.

3. Death Stranding

Hideo Kojima's next big game since his fallout with Konami over the Metal Gear series, Death Stranding will be Kojima's first game under his own Kojima Productions and he has enlisted the likes of Guillermo Del Toro, Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen in bringing this game to life. The last time a trailer was released was for last year's TGS. Let's hope lightning strikes twice and have Death Stranding makes another appearance this year.

4. Code Vein 

With so many "Souls-like" games making their to consoles and PCs everywhere, Code Vein is Bandai Namco's very anime-inspired take on this genre. Code Vein takes place in a post-apocalyptic world run by vampires. Players will take control of a Revenant and battle their way through the world, fighting vicious monsters and sucking up blood. Hopefully, more info on this game will be announced.


5.Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is the spiritual successor to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, made by the same producer, Koji Igarashi and was funded through Kickstarter. Sporting beautiful visuals and is really a nice throwback to fans of the classic Castlevanias, keep an eye out for this classic in the making. This side-scrolling RPG is scheduled to be released in March 2018
