It was not a 100% holding format in 2022. The effects of the spread of the new coronavirus infection still remained, and the event had to be held under various restrictions such as the size of the venue, restrictions on the number and age of visitors allowed in the venue, and new visa (visa) rules for foreigners entering Japan.
Despite these restrictions, the venue was filled with exhibitors and game fans who had been waiting for the show to be held for real, and the excitement and excitement returned to Makuhari Messe.”CESA
