Konami TGS 2022 Lineup Revealed: There Will Be a Mystery Game

Konami TGS 2022 Lineup has been revealed and fans of the Japanese company begin to vibrate with excitement. The reason? Konami has unveiled a long list of new titles and has also said that it will show an unannounced game that corresponds to a well-loved franchise throughout the world.

In addition to its own games, Konami’s booth will feature games from some of the company’s partners in Japan. Will be possible to see the games of Chorus Worldwide, ININ Games, Falcom, Oizumi Amuzio, Mebius, Rocket-Engine, PiXEL y TeyonJapan. This guarantees that its booth at the Tokyo Game Show 2022, between September 15 and 18, will possibly be one of the most visited by attendees.

Konami is on the mend and everyone likes that. The games that it will have at the Tokyo Game Show 2022 are a good demonstration of this. From the side of Konami, the following titles will be present with playable demo versions:

  • eFootball 2023
  • Super Bomberman R 2
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! Cross Duel
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel: Dawn of the Battle Royale!! Let’s Go! Go Rush!!

Other games will have stage events, exhibits, or other content, but not playable versions. Included in this group are the games: eBASEBALL Powerful Pro Baseball 2022, Hina Bita♪, esports Ginza school, Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban!, Shine Post: Be Your Idol!, as well as the mystery game we talked about before.

It’s important to talk about Shine Post: Be Your Idol!, a new music game with idols that will hit iOS and Android phones with a bang. Konami attempted to break into this genre with Tokimeki Idol, a Tokimemo spin-off, but the game was a failure. Now they have learned their lesson and have worked on Shine Post, which is a mixed-media project that already has a light novel, a manga, and an anime released in July 2022. The game is expected to be a huge success.

It is unknown which franchise could be chosen for its return, but since Konami has indicated that it is beloved throughout the world, purely Japanese franchises such as Tokimeki Memorial can be ruled out. The main possibilities point to Castlevania or Metal Gear. Goemon could also be an option, but his global relevance is less, while titles like Contra or Gradius should not be ruled out either.

The other Konami TGS 2022 Lineup games that will be at their booth are the following:

  • The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II -CRIMSON SiN-
  • Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly
  • A Space for the Unbound
  • Read Only Memories: Neurodiver
  • Steel Empire
  • Yobarai Detective: Miasma Breaker
  • Wonder Boy Ultimate Collection
  • Osman
  • Edge of Eternity
  • Dawn of the Monsters
  • Magicians Dead: Force of the Soul
  • Trouble Witches Final! Episode 01: Daughters of Amalgam
  • Horgihugh and Friends + Fire Dragon Fist Master Xiao-Mei
  • Human Fall Flat

There are plenty of retrogaming games to be seen on the list. Games like Steel Empire, the Wonder Boy franchise in its classic editions and even Osman, a missing game from the creator of Strider, are back.
