Video game publishers, associations and also amateur online game and MMORPG developers all contribute to make Japan Expo the can’t-miss event for video game fans!

Attendees can discover many games, whether on the booth of the game publishers who are always there (Nintendo, Namco Bandai, Square Enix, SEGA…), or of the associations (APOIL, Orgames, Bushido Impact, La Crampe aux Doigts...)!

Then have a go at the very popular rhythm games! Play with the greatest performers at Dance Dance Revolution, BeatMania or Guitar Hero, who fight during impressive tournaments!

Video game stage


On top of these activities, a video game stage has been created for conferences or meetings with the festival’s guests, such as SUDA51, Akira YAMAOKA and Dax GINN from Rocksteady studios who came to present Batman Arkham City.
