on September 1, 2015 3:46 PM

Today the Japanese Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association released the line-up of announced titles that will appear at Tokyo Game Show.

This lets us give a look at which platforms will be prominently featured at the show.

  • 3DS – 22
  • DS – 0
  • Wii U – 10
  • Wii – 1
  • PS4  – 44
  • PS3 – 28
  • PS Vita – 33
  • PSP – 1
  • Xbox One – 13
  • Xbox 360 – 5
  • Steam – 7
  • PC – 77

Looking at consoles, PS4 is firmly at the top, with 44 games, followed by the PS Vita with 33 and the PS3 with 28. Interestingly, the list does not include Sony’s games that were also announced today, meaning that the real numbers for Sony’s console are actually higher.

The highest ranked Nintendo platform is the 3DS with 22 games, while the Wii U is actually below the Xbox One, with 10 and 13 games respectively. It’s worth mentioning, though, that Nintendo traditionally does not attend Tokyo Game Show, so its first party games are missing.

If we look beyond consoles, PC as a whole ton of games, with 77 listed under the “PC” Category and 7 for Steam (for some reason, they’re listed separately), without even counting browser games. This is one more demonstration that, while PC gaming isn’t exactly popular in Japan, the platform is still a favorite among smaller developers. This also includes a lot of schools and universities, that have their own exhibitions at TGS.

Of couse, iOS and Android games appear in the gazillions.

You can check out the full list below, the titles in English are in the third column, with the last two pages listing publishers and developers in attendance.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
