Yes, this touch was the controller of video game.
I noticed I have almost never touched controller for about 15 years.
It was action game and reminds me of Super Mario.

At another booth, I could try game of cat.

And was died again by dog’s attack within 1 minute. T T
I could change the angle to cat’s side in the game.
This is VR game named Panic on the Toilet made by the students of Vantan Game Academy.
It is a vocational school for game, manga, anime, seiyu.
Looks like horror game.
I think this the last place people want to die.
What is this?
This game is called Mirapon and also by the student of Vantan Game Academy.
AR technique has been adopted.
You need to dance in front of anime character reflected on the screen.
You need to do exact same dance with the character and if it is correct you can make score.
Girl on the screen was reacting if people touch the screen or her face.
This is Information Tsukumotan by the students of Japan Electronics College.
I forgot where I played this game.
Anyway it was game of making burger.
Lettuce, tomato, etc, were falling from the top.

Sorry completely out of focus!
Game of Palystation and Android of Detroit Become Human by Sony
Oh, great booth!
I could see people playing Monster Hunter World on 4 screens.
This is CODE VEIN.
New character Io and Louis has announced.
I went further and found Andoroid.
I had to doubt my eyes.
Their face, expression, skin, etc. were so real!
They could move and wave hands like that of human.
The truth is,
They were real humans!!
When I came back home, I checked the information on this Android and found that they were pantomimers!
I had to surprise again!
Their subtle motion was really that of robot!
Din’t I say their movements were that of human?
I have to doubt myself now, haha.
Anyway that was great performance, I was deceived completely. > < This is an advertisement of new game Detroit Become Human. It is an adventure game of PS4
Captain Tsubasa by CLabGames

This is the room of Niki who is the main character of this game.
Looks like the voice actor of Niki is Kana Hanazawa.

I’m curious about the doll in her hand!
SKYOVER by Exys and 26
Looks like picture is drawn by Akira Toriyama of Dragonball or Dragon Quest.
People were wearing VR.
Interesting and I also played!
This is the booth.
And I set VR!
Sorry I could not take a picture but I could enjoy 360-degree panoramic views.
Party members were walking in the desert and were attacked by big dragon on the way.
Members and dragon moved during the battle and I also need to look back to catch them.
Now I understood the reason people wearing VR kept looking back instead of looking ahead.
It was great experience!

Dragon Quest was the very first RPG game I played when I was kid.
You can enjoy it on PS4, Wii U, Windows, Nintendo Switch.
But not Dragon Quest.
It is Itadaki Street!
I think Itadaki Street is not that famous like Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy but it is great game!
It is a kind of monopoly game and I was really into original Itadaki Street maybe about 20 years ago.
This is 30 anniversary since the first release of Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy and they became Itadaki Street this time!
Don’t miss to check the voice as many popular Seiyu play the characters in the game.

I didn’t drink anything today after went outside home that I was so thirsty.
There was a line of people but I joined it and got it.
This Monster was zero-calorie.
Gaming Chair by EXRACER
I could sit in the chair.
Oh, this is comfortable but I did not notice this was a chair for game then.
Yes, certainly there is a occupation called pro-gamer now so they must use this kind of chair.
Using it just as a reclining sofa, it is comfortable!
LET IT DIE by GungHo Online Entertainment
18 under can not enter.
I’m well above 18 but too coward at the same time so didn’t go inside, haha.
This looks like survival action game.
You can play it on PS4.
It must be scary game!
LOVE PLUS by KONAMI
I could see school girls inside.
They guided each person to the small room.
What’s happening here?
Later, after checking the information I could see here is the place you can enjoy VR of LOVE PLUS escorted by the girls.
There are classes, or partitions from A to L and VR Goggle set on the desk.
Desk is that of the one we used in class.
I see, so you can enjoy atmosphere of school days while playing the game putting aside the story of whether or not there was a girl besides you at the time.
This app is to release this winter of 2017 on smartphone app.
Looks like you had to wait in line about 2 hours!!
Total War: ARENA by Wargaming
This is the booth of Wargaming.
Their game World of Tanks, which is battle game of Tank, has one hundred million members!!
This set is made based on the image of “Total War: ARENA”
Total War: ARENA is also battling game online.
You need to cooperate with other people to pass the game.
Looked like each movements of player’s body are reflected in the world of VR through the gadgets attached to the body.
I wanted to try but the acceptance to join had already been finished sadly.
Cradle Chronicle by KONGZHONG JP and Cosplayer
Cosplayer of Cradle Chronicle.
Thanks for posing!

There are many seats to sit and enjoy food on the 2nd floor.
Cosplayers of some Video Games
Just before closing time, many cosplayers and companions come together and many people started to taking pictures so I joined them, haha.
I just took the pictures of cosplayers who had been around me at the time.
I could not understand most of the game or character but anyway thanks for posing!!
There were too many things to see.
What I tried is just a part as most of the popular VR games had a long waiting line.
You can also enjoy talk of producer, creator, seiyu, etc.
And if you try games or even if you did not try, you can get many things for free here.
Just prepare for long line!!
Actually my last game was original PlayStation and I think Final Fantasy 8 was the last game.
The progress of image, sound and technique since then is really surprising.
I felt like I was born in really exciting age.
I’m going to buy VR goggle one of these days!!
