imageA booth info bulletin posted on the Tokyo Game Show website has an overview of what types of games to expect at this year’s show. Compared to last year, there are less RPGs at Tokyo Game Show 2010. Exhibitors brought 52 role playing games in 2009, but only have 26 for 2010. Puzzle games took a sharp drop too from 59 games in 2009 to 18 in 2010. Sports games, adventure titles, and action games took modest declines as well.

 

The two genres that got a boost are simulation and shooting. There are 25 simulation games this year, three more than 2009. Publishers are packing 19 shooting games compared to 10 last year.
