Tokyo Game Show 2021 is fast approaching, and the online event is a hefty one, featuring 44 live streams over the course of 4 days. You may want to look at the schedule below, so you can more effectively pick and choose the pieces of the event you’d like to follow. We’re very excited to watch the Xbox Game Studios event, as they’ve promised ‘exclusive news’ at the show.
