TOKYO GAME SHOW 2015 Public Day 1 Review & Day 2 Preview

Onground Events
In other languages: ja

TGS reached the first Public Day! Now everyone can come visit the Wargaming booth (and of course, other neat stuff going on at TGS)! Most of the stage events today revolved around "Arpeggio of Blue Steel-Ars Nova-" a warship anime collaborating with World of Warships. Let's take a look without further ado!

For information on the programs and goodies and details on the bigger, better Wargaming booth this year, check out the page below!


O-I Greets the Public!

We've shown you the O-I and explained to you its origin the past two days, but it's another thing to look at it during Public Day with all the people surrounding it! Its sheer size gained the interest of pretty much everyone walking passed, including people who don't know tanks!



Online Variety Show "Buritan!" Comes to TGS!

First up today is the "Buritan!" shoot stage. "Buritan!" is a World of Tanks variety show featuring voice actresses Sarah Emi Bridcutt and Mana Komatsu. Girls und Panzer Producer Kiyoshi Sugiyama and Wargaming's Military Advisor Tadamasa Miyanaga joined in and looked back at Buritan's footsteps.

Then the guests are shuffled, and a voice actress group Ani-Yume come on stage. And a shocking annoucement is made to Mana. The events on the TGS stage will be made into a Buritan! episode in the near future! Stay tuned, and please wait a while we get the video ready!


"Girls und Panzer" x "Arpeggio of Blue Steel-Ars Nova-" Producer Special Talk Stage

Then Girls und Panzer Producer Kiyoshi Sugiyama came back with Arpeggio of Blue Steel-Ars Nova Producer Takeshi Minami and discussed the three way collaboration with Wargaming!


Victor Kislyi CEO Battles Japanese World of Tanks Players!

The next stage was VS Wargaming Special Battle Stage featuring a Wargaming employee team lead by Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi!

Again, everyone expected the TGS attendee team to be no match for the employee team, but these were apparently no ordinary attendees, with a disciplined teamwork and surprising tactics, the attendee team all three matches against the Wargaming employee team. After the initial shock and disappointment, CEO Victor congratulated the attendee team and praised their wonderful skill and teamwork.


"Blue Steels" Rock the Stage

Some in the audience, especially livestream viewers on Niconico were surprised when a trio singing troupe busted into stage! But the Blue Steel soon had everyone in laughs with their unconventional actions and fun character.


Creating "Kawaii" Battleships!?

The last but not least was a stage where Miss Yusuke presents to the Arpeggio of Blue Steel-Ars Nova- crew the appeals of World of Warships. Miss Yusuke presented us some interesting ideas on how to get more female players into World of Warships using "kawaii" as a keyword.
