Planning on heading to the MCM Manchester Expo this weekend? Well, a huge chunk of the line-up has just been unveiled, from a selection of the biggest publishers attending the show.
First up is the Nintendo Unleashed stand, which will give gamers a chance to go hands-on with the Nintendo 3DS XL before anyone else. Of course, it wouldn’t be much without the games, so there’ll be a UK debut for Pokémon Conquest, a chance to test out Kingdom Hearts: 3D Dream Drop Distance, New Super Mario Bros. 2, and new Wii title Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise.
Elsewhere, THQ will be bringing a solitary game in the form of Darksiders II, with the game’s principal designer Haydn Dalton and art director Han Randhawa set to host an on-stage panel. As well as that, Namco Bandai are bringing Tales of Graces F to the expo, giving players a chance to try out the new combat system, with “new layers of tactical depth” as three kingdoms scrap it out for planetary dominance. Last but not least, Konami will be sectioning off a special Dance Dance Revolution Zone, giving you the ultimate chance humiliate yourself in front of a live audience. Things could get a bit awkward if you choose to cosplay on the day, too.
Manchester’s MCM Expo is on this Saturday, July 21st, and it’s not too late to grab your tickets from the official website.
