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...)!
