The focus of the event will be new platforms (such as tablets) and social gaming. There will also be an expanded cosplay area.
The event will mark the 22nd TGS. Attendance has increased dramatically in recent years (even in 2011 after the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami). The 2012 event promises to be big.
