Good news to all gaming fans. Singapore will be having our own gaming convention. And no, we are not talking about those half hearted exhibition with a few local gaming distributors.
The organisers for the inaugural GameStart 2014 means business here. We are talking about companies like Sony, Bandai, Blizzard and 2K as exhibitors and guests like Masaaki Yamagiwa (Producer for Bloodborne) and Junichi Yoshizawa (Producer for Freedom Wars) coming to Singapore for the gaming convention.
Sony Computer Entertainment HK (SCEHK) will be showcasing close to 30 exciting titles for the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. These include hands-on previews for Bloodborne, The Order 1886, Until Dawn and Guilty Gear Xrd which are all slated for release in 2015. Most of the games on show will be unreleased and recently-released titles.
2K Asia will also be bringing a preview of their highly-anticipated 4v1 game Evolve to GameStart 2014. Made by the creators of Left 4 Dead, Evolve is a cooperative/competitive shooter where four Hunters face off against a single, player-controlled Monster in adrenaline-pumping 4v1 matches.
And you can’t have gaming convention without Cosplay. Renowned international cosplayers Yuegene Fay (Thailand) and Yasemin Arslan (Australia) will be at GameStart to meet fans and act as judges for the Game On! GameStart Cosplay Competition that will be held on 26 October.
