One of the biggest gaming events of the year, the #Tokyo Game Show provides an opportunity for players to try out unreleased games and to receive some new information.

This is not only about playable demos, although that is definitely a lot of fun, as new gameplay footage and stages designed by the publishers are also an attraction. It is not uncommon for a yet unannounced game to be introduced, so players from all around the world will keep track of the latest breaking news from the Tokyo Game Show.

Yakuza, Sonic, and Phantasy Star

#sega announced ten playable demos, which is a very impressive number. Two further games, "Hokuto Ga Gotoku" and "Lego Ninjago Movie The Game," will have their own stages but demos will not be available.

A quick glance over the ten demos, the majority of them are PlayStation games. "Sonic Forces" will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, but that is the only game which will be released on Microsoft and Nintendo's current generation home consoles. After the success of "Sonic Mania", we hope this new 3-D game continues the upwards swing for the franchise.

"Yakuza Kiwami 2" is one of the bigger demos [VIDEO] available to try out, especially with the new found popularity of the franchise. This is a remake of the second "Yakuza" game, which was originally released on the PlayStation 2, and we are expecting another impressive title.

"Steins; Gate Elite," an updated version of the original game, will have a playable demo during the Tokyo Game Show. SEGA has yet to release any substantial information about what is included in the update, so hopefully, the demo will reveal some new details.

"Phantasy Star Online 2" is a free to play MMO which has been available to play since 2012 in Japan. An official version has yet to make it to the West.

"A Certain Magical Cyber Trooper" is an action game which brings together "A Certain Magical Index" and "Cyber Troopers Virtual-On." Only a teaser trailer has been released so far, therefore this demo will be the first opportunity to see something a bit more substantial.

'Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux'

As the only 3DS game being showcased by SEGA, "#Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux" promises to be one of the bigger releases for Nintendo's portable console. It might not be a "Persona" game but we cannot help get a bit excited whenever anything related to "Shin Megami Tensei" is announced.
