on May 25, 2016 6:09 AM

Today the Japanese Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association, that organizes each year Tokyo Game Show, sent in a press release to announce the selection of the main visual illustration for the 2016 edition of the event.

The illustration, which you can see by at the bottom of the post, was created by Ippei Gyoubu, who visualized this year’s theme “Press Start to Play the Future.” Gyoubu-san has worked on the main visuals for Tokyo Game Shopw since the 2010 edition.

The press release also included a comment by Gyoubu-san himself, that you can read below.

“The game world is moving from monitors to headsets, and at some point gamers will probably even remove the headset. Is that world real or unreal? Games are creating the whole different concept of the world! The Tokyo Game Show has continually delivered to us the history of those revolutions, and is turning 20 this year. I can’t wait to go see a new revolution.”

Of course, you can expect yours truly to be on the show floor this year as well, keeping you updated on everything that happens. In the meanwhile, I leave you with the illustration.

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.
