Gamepolis took place last weekend. The main novelty in this third edition was the area dedicated to indie developers. Don’t miss the review by SEGAKU, that also comes with a huge gallery!
It wasn’t my first time at the event. I went with a regular pass on its first edition two years ago, and it was quite disappointing since the only focus of interest was Youtubers and LOL competitions. There were barely any booths, the place was extremely packed and had barely any activity outside of the panels. However, the event has grown bigger and better ever since. I was positively surprised and, despite some incidents, I can say it was really good in the end.
This weekend in Málaga (Spain), con season kicks off with the Comic Star con. SEGAKU went there to tell you all about it!
Yoshiki from X-Japan flew to Los Angeles California to attend the first ever Hello Kitty Con in honor of her 40th anniversary.
One of the activities planned for PlayFest is the showing of the documental Insert Coin, presented by David García, that talks about the creative process of videogames in Spain. This documental could be made thanks to crowdfunding donations and will be showcased in the PlayFest festival.
Japanese culture events have been multiplying all over Spain in the last years. They have been increasing popularity, bigger, attendees. Being a fan of Japanese culture is starting to be seen as something not so bad anymore… yet, Japanese music has yet to have its own space in these events, a place that K-pop or Korean pop does have.
This week is the big week of Japanese culture in Paris, the biggest event in Europe dedicated to Japan: the Japan Expo.
