  • – A celebration of Japanese culture, including costume role play masquerades, talks, anime and manga.

There will be a variety of talks by personalities from the games industry throughout the weekend along with tournaments, demonstrations and giveaways.

Play Expo spokesperson, Gordon Sinclair said: “There is great demand from gamers for a show outside of London and from our experience, we know there is appetite for Replay’s unique approach. In fact, we surveyed previous attendees to our shows and found that 96% said they wanted this type of event and that they would be very likely to attend. With that kind of support, we are confident that this huge step forward will be a successful one for both us and our exhibitors.”

Play Expo will be able to comfortably accommodate 10,000 consumers over the two days. In addition, Play Expo is in partnership with eSports provider EGL, which will stream the expo to up to 500,000 worldwide viewers.

    I should win this competition as I would take my son who is gutted that we haven’t been to a game expo this year (Eurogamer sold out and too far) and it also falls on his birthday weekend and would be a nice surprise for him

    I would be so thrilled to have the oppertunity to attend this event!
    Computer games, and cosplay have always been my escapes from life.
    So going to an event dedicated to these things would be a dream come true.
    Back in the day I remember spending days at a time on my Sega. To this day it is still the only console I have ever owned and had the oppertunity to play, so would love to get a feel for other consoles, to hopefully spread my interest and basically have an epic time!! =D
