Console Gaming

All Days in Plaza Ballroom A

Ever since the early 1900’s, video games have given us some of the greatest media to date. The story telling of Final Fantasy, masterpiece music from the Legend of Zelda, and visual design from The Shadow of the Colossus are all perfect example of why a video gaming room is needed at Pacific Media Expo! For 2013, the gaming room will have stations for the most popular competitive games such as Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition and Super Smash Bros. Melee as well as some of your favorite anime fighters like Guilty Gear or Persona 4 Arena. If you're not the fighting type, we'll have some other fun attractions like a Just Dance station.

Perhaps console gaming isn’t your kind of thing. No worries, we’ll have a lounge specifically for handheld gaming so come on by! Whether you play Pokemon on the 3DS or Kingdom Hearts on the Vita, any handheld players are welcome. If you been trying to find a worthy Tetris opponent or need a partner in Little Big Planet, this is the place to be.
