We’ve extremely great news to share with you! For the first time ever, Square Portal will be participating in Tokyo Game Show 2015, during business and open days. Depending on Wi-Fi connection at the event, we will be doing tons of live reporting. However, it may not be our full focus this year. Instead of that, we are planning to make the experience just like you were there by offering tons of images, videos and other content from each corner of the event – not just Square Enix booth! If you would like to us to ask developers / take pictures / videos of certain things, tweet your request or hit the comments section!
“I feel that this is really a great opportunity to offer our readers something truly unique. Tokyo Game Show has always been that kind of an event where the Western media hasn’t been as present as many of us had hoped – but this year we are planning to change that! With our reporting and original contents, we are aiming to share a whole new experience. It will be a like a grand adventure with a beginning and an ending.
For me, traveling to Japan has always been a long-time dream and it’s finally coming true! (I will probably turn into a slime as I step out from the airport, hah) Visiting such a beautiful country and participating in one of the biggest game industry events in just one week sounds very overwhelming and exciting at the same time. Honestly, I just can’t wait to have a dinner in some really nice restaurants, learn about the culture, play the games and experience the life in Japan. (And snatch all the goodies) In addition, we got invited Bandai Namco’s headquarters to participate in their pre-TGS, which is a huge honor. Not many of you know this, but Bandai Namco actually releases Square Enix games here in Scandinavia, so we have worked very closely together for almost half a decade.
Our amazing experience with them has also inspired Square Portal with the next project. We can’t yet talk about it, but I promise you it’ll be something really exciting and fresh for you and us. It’s one of the reasons why we have been in a short hiatus for a while (alongside our real life jobs), but soon the secret will be revealed! I can’t wait for our readers to see the results of all planning and hard work. Please, look forward to it!”
