It’s September already, and that means that Tokyo Game Show 2020 is upon us. Of course, like most things this year, 2020’s event will be online only, made up of plenty of livestreamed content. Sadly, Nintendo is once again absent, but there will be plenty of Nintendo Switch goodness on show by various third-party publishers. Tokyo Game Show has revealed the full streaming schedule for 2020, including showcases from Capcom, Square Enix, Sega, Bandai Namco, Konami, and more.

The event takes place over four days, from Sept. 24 to 27 in Japan. Content comes from a bunch of games and tech companies, with Microsoft Japan opening the show at 8 p.m. JST on Sept. 24. The table below conveniently shows every company and the time its showcase will go live.
