It’s time to press the start button for Tokyo Game Show (TGS), and while last year’s edition smashed attendance records with more than 270,000 gamers showing up over the course of the event. This year’s TGS hopes to be even bigger. The number of exhibitors has reached a record 421, a significant hike from last year’s tally of 342.

As the numbers of attendees and participants increase, the lengths of the lineups to try out the games are bound to get longer to. The best way to cut down on wait times is to get there early. Fans will dart for the booths as soon as the doors open, so be sure to plan in advance.
