Tokyo Game Show 2013 opened yesterday at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba. The video game expo, Asia’s largest, runs through Sunday. This is a record-breaking year for Tokyo Game Show, with 352 exhibitors from 33 countries in attendance.
From upcoming next-generation consoles to increasingly popular mobile games for smartphones and tablets, Tokyo Game Show exhibitors have something to show off for every platform. This year, there are 962 titles on display from both mainstream and independent developers.
Console giants Sony and Microsoft are undoubtedly the centerpieces of this year’s event, with hands-on demonstrations of upcoming titles for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Elaborate props and cosplayers added to the visual overload.
The following photos were taken yesterday, the first of two business days that are reserved for gaming industry professionals and journalists.

Be sure to arrive early if you want to avoid the long lines and have a chance to try some amazing new games months before they are released.
