It’s almost here. This Saturday Manchester Central will play host to the MCM Expo Manchester Comic Con. If you are a regular to this site then you may know that I have touched on this subject before HERE. But now some big name gamers have announced their intentions for the Expo.
First up is Nintendo……
The Nintendo Unleashed stand will be going XL for the upcoming release of the new 3DS XL console – the biggest ever screen on a Nintendo handheld. The publisher is bringing a vast array of titles to Manchester Comic Con so fans can see how their favourite games are even better in XL.
Nintendo’s playable 3DS games will include the UK exclusive of Pokémon Conquest, as well as the amazing Kingdom Hearts: 3D Dream Drop Distance and New Super Mario Bros. 2. Visitors will also be able to get hands-on with new Wii title Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise.
We also have offerings from THQ…….
THQ will be previewing their much-anticipated action adventure Darksiders II. Not only will visitors be able to step into the boots of Death – the most feared of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse – as he battles to redeem his brother War, but the game’s principal designer Haydn Dalton and art director Han Randhawa are also set to host an on-stage panel.
The panel should be interesting, and Darksiders 2 seems to be worth a look.
And finally we have Namco…….
Namco Bandai will also be showcasing the latest in their acclaimed JRPG Tales of… series, Tales of Graces F. Set amidst the conflict of three kingdoms competing for planetary dominance, Tales of Graces F features a new combat system lets the player freely change attack style depending on the battle situation. The characters’ distinctive weapons can be swapped for different styles, and the combat system is now easier to control while simultaneously adding new levels of tactical depth.
All very exciting stuff, but there is still nothing that slaps me around the face as amazing. Should be a good day regardless, love a Con!!!!
