UPDATE: It is with heavy heart that we at Koelnmesse announce an official postponement of gamescom asia to 14 – 17 October 2021.

As optimistic as we were about bringing gamescom asia to life this October, we agreed that the world would not be situationally ready for this to happen. The health and safety of our participants is the top priority.

We have been especially encouraged by the enthusiasm from fans, partners and participants thus far. However, for an inaugural event, we also felt that it was important to give the community the full experience of what an amazing international event would be like, and not anything less.

Please continue to support us through these tough times.

New digital engagements to support the Asian games industry will be shared in the lead up to our refocused efforts on 2021. Let’s create the best gamescom asia next year.

Pokémon GO Fest 2020 reimagined experience announced, will now be a completely virtual event this July

Things will have to be different this time around

Check out the following message from The Pokémon Go team announcing the details on how Pokémon GO Fest will work in 2020. The event will now be taking place virtually on July 25th and 26th!

Trainers,

In 2019, our Pokémon GO Fest lineup was bigger and better than ever before. That summer, we held more than one Pokémon GO Fest in the same year for the first time ever! Chicago, Dortmund, and Yokohama hosted individual Pokémon GO Fest events that, in total, brought together over 600,000 Trainers for a special summer of live events.

This year, we’re bringing you a totally reimagined Pokémon GO Fest experience. Save the dates: on July 25 and 26, Pokémon GO Fest 2020 will take place as an entirely global event in a virtual format, which will allow Trainers worldwide to participate from wherever they play. In another first, all ticket holders will be able to attend both days of this two-day event.

While we’ll miss the traditional congregation of Pokémon GO fans, we’re thrilled to bring a special Pokémon GO Fest experience to Trainers. Not only are you in for an exciting weekend of bonuses, Pokémon encounters, and Special Research, there will also be exciting ways to connect with other Trainers and experience other fun surprises throughout the entire summer.

Be sure to check the Niantic blog and the Pokémon GO Fest website for more updates in the coming weeks. We can’t wait to share them all with you. Until we can all meet again in the same park and under the same sky—let’s GO!

Indie Live Expo 2020 announced for June 6th

An indie event indeed

Ryu’s Office has announced that they've been preparing a large indie presentation for next month! INDIE Live Expo 2020 will be taking place on June 6th, 2020 at 4am PT / 7am ET, and while being held in Japan, "will feature information on not only Japanese indie games, but indie titles from a wide variety of other countries as well." Alongside the event delivering "the latest information on both published and not-yet-published indie titles", ZUN, Toby Fox, SWERY, Kazuya Nino, and other indie creators will also appear, and will be providing personal messages during the live-stream. Available to watch live from YouTube and Twitch, you definitely won't wanna miss this digital indie expo! Check out the expo's website here, or read all the information below!

Get Ready for INDIE Live Expo
People around the world are currently cut off from one another due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Game industry shows and events have been canceled, and we’ve been deprived of invaluable opportunities to congregate and communicate with each other directly.
However, we believe that now more than ever is the time to promote friendship, fellowship, and enthusiasm through the medium of video games.

INDIE Live Expo will be held here in the Far East island country of Japan and streamed to all of our friends throughout the world who love indie games.
Our program will feature information on not only Japanese indie games, but indie titles from a wide variety of other countries as well.
Our goal is to create a livestream for the purpose of facilitating new experiences, friendships, and discoveries for people around the globe.

We will be broadcasting live in Japanese, English, and Chinese, and are also currently searching for partners who can assist in providing support for other languages as well.
Our goal is to bring in 1 million viewers worldwide, and to produce a show worthy of those numbers.

Through this livestream, we hope to enlighten as many game lovers as possible with regard to the rich history of indie games in Japan, which has been going strong since before the global indie game movement.

GAME FREAK itself - well known for the Pokémon franchise - was purely indie.
The Fate franchise, popular throughout Asia and North America, was born from the mind of a "doujin" scriptwriter.
ZUN, the mysterious and enigmatic developer who has been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records, continues to develop his works on his own to this day.
However, very few Japanese people are actually aware of these creators' respective histories.

In the Western world, innumerable indie game creators have been pumping out their own legendary works.
We feel that now is the time to spread the word about the amazing game culture Japan boasts.

Recently, throughout both the West and Asia alike, the video game culture has continued to grow.
Despite various obstacles, games across the world continue to excite and attract new gamers.
Some creators feel that they themselves are still in the early stages of their development.
We believe that this huge movement will have an impact all over the world.

Our number one hope is to overcome the divide caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
With that, we are proud to announce the birth of the INDIE Live Expo - an event in which we can come together, encourage each other, and feel a true sense of friendship

INDIE Live Expo - Event outline
- One million viewers worldwide, in Japanese, English, and Chinese
INDIE Live Expo 2020 will be streamed live with cooperation from a wide range of media outlets and streamers around the globe.
We aim to reach an audience of 1 million viewers throughout the world in order to promote both awareness of and excitement for the latest products from various indie game creators.

- Get the latest info on the indie game industry
INDIE Live Expo is set to deliver the latest information on both published and not-yet-published indie titles.
We will also be presenting discussions and presentations on masterpieces of the indie genre for newer gamers as well as our own carefully selected recommendations.
