The official attendance for this year’s Tokyo Game Show have been revealed. The organizers of the event revealed that over the 4 days of the event, 251,000 people attended the event. This numbers are down compared to last year, but it’s still the 2nd highest attendance since it debuted in 1996. 2013 saw a record 270,197 attendees. The reasoning for the decrease is the visitors for the 2 days open to the public was down. The last 2 days of TGS are open to the public and had 195,399 during those days.
In addition to these details, attendance for media (including exhibitors) was up 4,000 people. Tokyo Game Show will return to the Makuhari Messe next year from September 17-20.
