So if you’ve been keeping up with our Tokyo Game Show coverage, I’m sure the biggest question on your mind is “this is all well and good, but where’s the cosplay man?!” Well, wait no further, for we have endeavored to capture the sexiest, the cutest, and the most awesome cosplay from the show for your viewing pleasure!

Being Japan, there is of course going to be loads of Final Fantasy Cosplay! The old-school black and white mages were my favorites.
