Xbox has confirmed a return to the Tokyo Game Show 2023, with a formal Xbox Digital Broadcast planned to air on 21 September 2023. While the show is not expected to host major reveals, it will spotlight “progress updates” from Xbox and Bethesda Softworks with a “diverse collection of games from creators predominantly located in Japan and across Asia.”

It’s likely some of the spotlight will be devoted to the newly-released Starfield, given its popularity and the ongoing excitement around the title, although we will also see a range of other games – including new titles coming to Xbox Game Pass.

Those attending the Tokyo Game Show 2023, which takes place in and around Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan, will have the opportunity to attend the show live – and there will also be a special, free fan event with Phil Spencer and Sarah Bond on 23 September 2023 to compliment the livestream.

It will also be broadcast in Japanese Sign Language and Australian Sign Language, and with audio descriptions for the Japanese and English audio channels.
