Nintendo will not attend Tokyo Game Show 2021, the company confirmed today.
The Japanese company confirmed its absence in this year’s edition of the event, which will be held entirely online, on its official Twitter profile. Nintendo will only collaborate with select developers to show off indie titles.
Nintendo has held a booth and game title exhibition at the “TGS 2021 ONLINE” which will be held from September 30, 2021. We will cooperate with the exhibition of the game of other companies. If you are inspecting your participation in the event, please do not make a mistake. Uh, thank you for your cooperation.

“Nintendo will not display booths or game titles at the“ TOKYO GAME SHOW 2021 ONLINE ”which will take place beginning September 30, 2021. We will only cooperate in the exhibition of independent games from other companies. If you are considering participating in the event, make no mistake. “
Earlier this week, the list of companies that attended TGS2021 was confirmed. Among them will be Microsoft, which will open the event with a 50-minute live broadcast, CAPCOM, Square Enix, Arc System Works and many others. Since Nintendo will be skipping the event, it is highly likely that the company will share news about upcoming games before the end of the month in a new Direct. The Japanese company received previous Directs during September in recent years, so the chances of the same thing happening this year are definitely not slim.
The Tokyo Game Show 2021 will take place from September 30 to October 3.
