Fancy getting your hands on this summer’s hottest titles before release? Of course you do. Northern gamers should get to Manchester Central (formerly the G-Mex arena) for the MCM Comic Con event taking place all day tomorrow for the only way to spend a Saturday.
While mainly focused on comics and anime products, there’s a solid line-up of games to try out too. THQ’s killer sequel, Darksiders 2 will be there in playable form and as an added bonus, a live panel will be hosted by lead designer Haydn Dalton and art director Han Randhawa around 1:30pm.
Still not sure about picking up a 3DS? Well why not try out the new and improved 3DS XL at the expo? You’ll be able to play unreleased games like Super Mario Bros 2 and Pokémon Conquest. Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance was released today, but why not try before you buy?
RPG fans can try Tales of Graces F on the PS3. Read Matt’s recent hands-on preview to find out more about that game. Dance fans can brave public scrutiny by trying out new Wii title Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise. If nothing else, combining Wii dancing with cosplay could be well worth a watch.
Other features around the expo of interest include appearances from Warwick Davis (Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Life’s Too Short) and various cast members from TV’s Merlin and Young Dracula. If you want to fatten up your comic, graphic novel or anime DVD collection then you’ll find a huge range on offer too. Film, TV and gaming memorabilia will provide an all too powerful temptation too. BRING MONEY!
Doors open for general entry at 11 until 4:30 and the event will close at 5pm. Tickets cost £5 for adults, £3 for children and under 10’s get free entry. For more information about tickets, cosplay rules and other details, check out the official site.
I’ll see you down there folks, I’ll probably be hogging a Darksiders 2 booth. Check back here at Dealspwn for a hands-on impression soon.
