Like many other conventions, expositions and in-person events, Tokyo Game Show 2020 has officially moved to an online-only model. The popular Japanese event will consist of a series of livestreams held between Thursday, September 24 and Sunday, September 27. The organizers of the event clarified that the live streams will be hosted on three separate channels, one for main events, one for indie events, and one for eSports tournaments. Information regarding how to watch the events will be shared via Tokyo Game Show’s official Web site.
The official schedule of events has been revealed online in the form of a single easy-to-read calendar. Developers and publishers hosting presentations include Microsoft, Square Enix, Sega, Atlus, Capcom, Koei Tecmo, Bandai Namco, and more. Konami, which has previously had a minimal presence at the event, will in fact be hosting not one but two one-hour slots during the event. Could unexpected news from Konami be on the horizon?
An English-language version of the schedule was shared by Twitter user @Nibellion:

In addition to the announcement panels, Tokyo Game Show will feature the Japan Game Awards, an indie-focused event called Sense of Wonder Night, and multiple eSports tournaments. The games featured during the eSports segments of the event this year will be Street Fighter, Puzzle & Dragons, and Magic: The Gathering. The Magic events will include a qualifier for the upcoming Red Bull Untapped international tournament.
A number of exciting announcements are expected to be featured during Tokyo Game Show 2020. Last year’s TGS 2019 included updates, trailers and announcements for titles ranging from Death Stranding to the Final Fantasy VII Remake. Get ready for a celebration of all things regarding gaming in Japan!
