Cosplayers' Cure Night was a showcase of some truly great cosplay. Kotaku was around before the event (snapping pictures), but we had to retire for the evening before it kicked off. What can I say, our bed time is so early!

Well, this year's Tokyo Game Show has drawn to a close. It was a busy show, but it was great to cover it with most of Kotaku East (save for the lovely Eric Jou, who was in Macau, eating heart attacks). Bummer that more of Kotaku couldn't have been here, either, but whaddayagonnado.
Over the weekend, the Asia E-Sports Cup was held at the Tokyo Game Show. Local Japanese team myRevenge (formerly UNiTED) faced off against the largely Singaporean team Asking Questions.

You've seen the cosplaying dudes of this year's Tokyo Game Show. And now? Now, it's the ladies' turn.
The Tokyo Game Show is a crowded place. It's not so bad on the business days where the attendance is around 25,000 people. On the public days, the amount of people usually skyrockets to over 80,000.

And Kotaku's Tokyo Game Show coverage continues! Here's the day three round up, with all the news, impressions, and fun in one place.
Tonight at the Tokyo Game Show, some of the best cosplayers in Japan—and around the world—gathered for Cosplayers' Cure Night.
