Tokyo Game Show 2014 main visual

The Computer Entertainment Suppliers Association have unveiled the main visual for this year’s Tokyo Game Show.

Ippei Gyoubu, who was in charge of Tokyo Game Show 2010’s main visual, is also in charge of this year’s key art. It reflects this year’s key words of “change” and “transformation,” as well as this year’s theme, “Changing Games: The Transformation of Fun.”

“I created this year’s main visual by visualizing the ’emergence’ based on the keyword ‘change/transformation’ in the theme,” Gyoubu said in a statement. “A caterpillar becomes a chrysalis, breaks down its body and reconstructs itself to be bornas a completely different creature.

“In a gaming world, technological innovation has evolved in the last 10 years and now that we’ve passed through the revolutions such as internet, social media and smartphone, I feel that we’ve come close to the time of the birth of a completely new world with all those revolutions blending well. I created this visual based on that feeling. This main visual expresses the ambiguity of whether the visual is a reflection of the metal or not, it’s a flat graphic or not, it’s stereoscopic or planar, and she’s a human or a robot.”

The Tokyo Game Show is set to run in Chiba from September 18 to 21.
