Tokyo Game Show Is Not Canceled, Could Be Downsized

The tragic earthquakes and tsunamis that have plagued Japan won't stop the Tokyo Game Show, Japan's biggest gaming convention. It might slow it down a bit, however. Tokyo Game Show, which takes place each September, will consume a lot of power, power that could be needed to help fix the nuclear reactors. Power shortages to help this effort could last up to six more months, which puts TGS in a bit of a situation.

Right now, there are no plans to axe the show.  A Tokyo Game Show spokesperson told Kotaku Japan, "Currently, we are not thinking of canceling or making the show smaller." He added, "Depending on the situation from here on out, it is possible that the show is reduced."

Tokyo Game Show is planned for September 15-18.
