Taipei Game Show 2021

The Taipei Computer Association announced that Taipei Game Show 2021 will be held from January 28 to 31, 2021. The event will have a hybrid format that combines both offline and online presentations. [Thanks, Gamer!]

Although the first two days of the Taipei Game Show still has dedicated Business Zone for B2B booths, the B2C Player Zone—where visitors can try out game demos—will be opened for all four days. For the first time in the event history, the Business Zone will also have an online presentation format so that people in the gaming industry can interact from anywhere in the world. The Asia Pacific Game Summit will also be streamed worldwide.

The 2020 Taipei Game Show was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Originally slated to be held on February 6-9, 2020, the organizers initially moved the schedule to summertime on June 25-28, 2020. The event ended up getting canceled entirely on March 25, 2020, due to the spread of the disease.

Taipei Game Show has been getting more spotlight in recent years because major Japanese game publishers use the event to publish new game information for not only Chinese-speaking regions but also Japan. In the now-canceled 2020 show, Bandai Namco was originally due to announce gameplay information for The Idolmaster: Starlit Season and Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Maxi Boost ON. SEGA was also due to reveal a game at the event.

Taipei Game Show 2021 will take place at the Nangang Exhibition Center Hall 1 on January 28-31, 2021.
