As TGS 2017 slowly approaches, more and more publishers are starting to reveal its lineup for the upcoming event. Next in line is Konami who have announced via the official Tokyo Game Show 2017 website what fans can expect to see from it this year.

Compared to other producers attending the show, Konami doesn’t seem to be offering too much this year. The only titles that would be considered heavy hitters for it are Metal Gear Survive and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III, and there are caveats with both. Metal Gear Survive has received a cold reception ever since it was announced and creator/ex-producer Hideo Kojima famously disparaged the game at TGS 2016; while The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is being showcased as a partner title with Nihon Falcom (its unclear to what degree Konami is involved with this title). At the very least, their presence will allow players to get a handle on them before their eventual release.

Here is the complete Konami TGS 2017 lineup:

■ Console Games

  • 100% Pascal Sensei: Perfect Paint Bombers (3DS) – Playable (Family Game Park)
