Following the initial confirmation of Tokyo Game Show 2006, to be held September 22nd to the 24th 2006 at the Makuhari Messe in Tokyo's Chiba prefecture, the organizers have announced the theme for the show and goals for attendees.

The 10th anniversary show's theme, jointly announced by Japanese game industry trade body CESA and its chairman and Square Enix president Yoichi Wada, is 'new stimulus, new feeling, new era', according to a Japanese-language press statement released on the official Tokyo Game Show site. The theme, according to CESA, "is meant to reflect the changing and converging landscape, one in which consumer consoles, online games, mobile games and next-gen are all supported."

The organizers of the show aim to repeat their success as an important international event in this anniversary year, and officially announced that Tokyo Game Show 2006 is anticipating 160,000 attendees (actually slightly reduced from 2005's totals), and 140 exhibitors, with a rough total of 1,500 individual exhibits.

More information about the show is available on the English-language version of the official Tokyo Game Show website, and Gamasutra will be at TGS to bring detailed keynote and interview reports this year, as in previous years.
