Party with us in the Video Game Hub from 8:00 p.m. until midnight on Friday and Saturday with an adult drink special from the hotel bar.  That’s right!  You can bring your drinks and snacks into the convention and enjoy them with other fans while you game!  Please drink and game responsibly.

Our recommended games for this console

These games will be available all weekend to play, for free! However, we’ll be hosting specific games that are best played with two or more players to give everyone the chance to experience these games with as many potential players as possible during certain times.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle (PS3): 7:00 p.m. Friday

Adapted from Hirohiko Araki’s smash manga hit, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, the game takes characters spanning all eight incredible story arcs of the manga and pits them against each other in an epic one-on-one fighting game. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle gives players the feeling they are participating in vivid and colorful battles straight from the pages of the manga. Each character comes with their signature moves punctuated by dynamic camera angles to capture every highlight of the fight either against computer opponents via Story Mode or human adversaries online.

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax (PS3): 7:00 p.m. Saturday

Get ready for a dream duel of epic proportions in Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax, a 2D fighting game featuring an all-star cast of popular characters from Dengeki Bunko novels set against Sega-themed worlds. Developed by Ecole and French Bread, this mash up features a fighting system that is both easily understood yet complex in depth catering to veterans and newcomers alike.  

Includes characters from Durarara, Shakugan no Shana, Toradora, Accel World, Sword Art Online, Oreimo, Spice and Wolf, The Irregular at Magic High School, and more!

Super Smash (N64): 11:00 a.m. Sunday

Four-player action fighter, starring 12 Nintendo mascots, including Mario, Luigi, Fox, Link, Samus, Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Captain Falcon. All the action takes place on one screen, from a zoomed out third-person perspective more reminiscent of old-school platformers than traditional fighting games. The premise is as simple as the controls. Beat up you opponents and knock them off the fighting platform to score a point. The more damage your opponents sustain, the farther you can throw them. Apart from the quick, but explosive mayhem that ensues when more than one player has at it, the game manages to bring back many fond gaming memories by bombarding players with familiar items, power-ups and many classic tunes.

Killer Instinct (SNES): 3:00 p.m. Sunday

Killer Instinct for the Super NES was the original home edition of this classic arcade game. It has action, graphics and sound that annihilates all other combat games! Like the arcade version, this amazingly accurate translation is set in the future: a world controlled by the mega corporation known as Ultratech. In this ravaged futuristic world, the Killer Instinct tournament has become the most renowned form of entertainment. Fighters have their own reasons for participating, but it takes strength, speed and strategy to be successful. It takes a killer instinct!
