“GameStart 2014”: gaming convention debuts in Singapore
Gamers in Singapore, get ready – GameStart is coming to you this October!
While the world may be no stranger to gaming conventions, there has yet to be one successfully produced and hosted by the island city-state itself. So far, the US has “E3” and Germany has “Gamescom”. Here in Asia, Japan has its own “Tokyo Game Show”. Now Singapore wants in on the action too.
The Lion City is kickstarting its very own gaming convention this coming October. Named “Game Start 2014”, the convention aims to bring gamers from all walks of life together under one arena, setting just as much hype and fun like the three aforementioned gaming conventions.
LittleBigPlanet 3 will be featured at Sony’s booth in GameStart 2014.
Sony, other than being the convention’s main sponsor, is also a confirmed exhibitor which will be occupying over 200 square foot per meter of booth space. The booth will be exhibiting DRIVECLUBTM, LittleBigPlanet 3 and FREEDOM WARSTM, which are all new titles for PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita.
The organisers have also managed to rope in other big names like Red Bull and Xmashed Gear to sponsor the event. The latter will be launching exclusive T-shirt designs just for the event itself.
Yasemin Arslan a.k.a. Vera Chimera Cosplay will be a guest judge!
This convention promises to be fun for cosplayers too. Neo Tokyo Project is organising Game On! Cosplay Competition and Yasemin Arslan is set to make an appearance. Hailing from Australia, Arslan, or more widely known as Vera Chimera Cosplay, will be joining Singapore’s very own cosplayer Tessie as the judges for the competition.
So game and cosplay enthusiasts, mark your calendars for this:
