The theme for 2013's Tokyo Game Show is "Games: Limitless Evolution," so at an event that is giving the Japanese public its first look at the next-generation PlayStation and Xbox consoles, those in attendance could be forgiven for having high expectations. But with Japan getting short shrift from console manufacturers — neither the PlayStation 4 nor Xbox One will see release here in 2013 — the show has been low on true revelations.

Many companies have turned to Germany's Gamescom event in August as their platform for major end-of-year announcements, and earlier this month Sony chose to unveil its new PS Vita and PS Vita TV consoles at a dedicated event rather than TGS. That doesn't mean there wasn't anything to see on the show floor, however — take a look at what Japan's gaming industry had to offer this year.
