Looks like Sega is bringing its full Yakuza hand, including Yakuza Kiwami 2, Hokuto Ga Gotoku and Yakuza Online, and those appear to be the center piece of the publisher’s participation to the show. Atlus is only bringing Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux of which we have shown almost every single bit by now.

Notably, Persona 5 Dancing Star Night and Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night won’t be at the show.

On the other hand, the publisher expanded its partners for the show this time around, including Warner Bros., Electronic Arts, Nippon Ichi Software and 5pb. The latter is rather notable, because there will be a new trailer and a playable build of the new Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? game, of which we have only seen a brief teaser trailer and absolutely nothing else. You can bet that I’ll be all over that.

Tokyo Game Show will run at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, near Tokyo, between September 21st and September 24th. DualShockers will be treading the show floor, so expect a ton of coverage coming your way.
