Check out the unmissable Middle East Games Con
It’s not every day you can hang out with Pikachu, pit your wits (and your thumbs) against the world’s top gamers and check out the latest blockbuster releases under one roof.
But then there’s nothing ordinary about Middle East Games Con, the gaming bonanza set to take Abu Dhabi by storm across October 25-27.
Whether you’re a hardcore gamer, new to the scene, deeply into cosplay or a fan of Japanese arts and crafts, this three-day festival at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre is the ultimate destination for you.
There’s all kinds of cool things to keep you entertained throughout the fun-filled weekend, including some star appearances from the gaming world’s biggest names.
YouTube sensations Miniminter and Syndicate will be bringing their inimitable styles and passion for gaming to the capital, with fans able to secure meet and greet packages in association with Virgin Mobile.
While you can also hang out with award-winning voice actor Doug Cockle, the voice of The Witcher series’ main monster hunter, or Lucie Pohl - Mercy from Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch.
