This year’s Tokyo Games Show was full of surprises. First, I did not expect to see the Smach Z there! At least 3 of their representatives were there, from technical side to marketing/financial side, and they were showing a prototype at their booth. Unfortunately, it was not functional.
Oscar de la Torre from Smach Z told me that they have recently had issues with the connection between the PCB and the screen (they needed another chip in between apparently) and they had to wait another 2 weeks before they could get a new PCB to fix the issue. So they could not have a working prototype in time for the TGS.
