GAMESTART 2016

GameStart Asia showcases independent developers, local games, other video games, gaming tournaments and gives a chance to local game developers to gain funding from investors. All held at Singapore's Suntec Convention Centre, Hall 405 and Hall 406, from 7th to 9th October 2016. (Starts 2pm on the 7th.) The first 300 visitors will receive a goodie bag filled with gaming loot. Whether you are one of the first 300 or not, there are a whole load of activities, cosplays, game art and even a daily lucky draw. You’ll also be given some Quest card where you will need to visit specific booths to complete the quests to get a lucky dip and increase your chance to win at the daily lucky draw. We’re guessing that the quest card will get you to visit a whole load of merchandise booths.

Xbox will be making its first appearance at GameStart 2016, showing off upcoming titles like Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3 and Final Fantasy XV.

Although we’re seeing Xbox showing off their wares, Bandai Namco is here with game previews for Tales of Berserk, Tekken 7, Little Nightmares and some VR stuff.

Since everyone loves to game, you have to join in on the South East Asia Major 2016, which are presented by Sony Interactive Entertainment and will be hosted at GameStart for the first time.

There are 9 gaming tournaments for games such as Street Figher V Capcom, Street Fighter V, Guilty Gear, BlazBlue, Tekken 7, King of Fighter and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Basically Capcom Gaming Tournaments.

Except for the last two gaming tournaments which is the annual FIFA tournament, the GameStart Championship Cup, and the Overwatch tournament.

What is getting us SO GORRRRAAMMMM EXCITED is the Retro DNA which brings back popular arcade and old school console games for free-play and to PURCHASE. You can buy a mini arcade and BRING. IT. HOME. We're (I'm) so excited that I forgot to say that it is by NAJ Arcade or Pixel Play and there's a INDIEGOGO page.
