Video Gaming

Love video games? Well, you’re in the right place, because so does Matsuricon! Stop by our Video Gaming room this year and show us what you can do! There’ll be no shortage of options when it comes to consoles, including:

  • XBOX 360
  • PS3
  • PS4
  • Wii
  • Wii U
  • also featuring our brand new retro machines!

We’ll be raffling off a Chest of Booty, including a Gamestop gift card, gold chocolate coins, and a few other goodies TBA. The raffle will take place Saturday, Aug 20th, at 9p. Entries must be in by 8p. $5 per entry, enter as many times as you’d like, because all proceeds will go to charity! Full legal name, address, phone number, and email will be required in case you are not present at the time of drawing.

A Dry Bones Jolly Roger banner signed by as many VA’s as possible will be displayed in the VG room, then auctioned off during the Matsuricon Charity Auction.

Matsuricon is proud to team up with Tokyo Attack, and new for 2016, Dead State Pavilion, to bring you an amazing gaming experience!  Dead State has been organizing gaming tournament since 2007, and will be running most of our tournaments this year. They’ll be bringing consoles and PCs of quality equal to or better than Evo Standards, and the PCs will be BRAND NEW!

Video Gaming does not allow outside equipment to be hooked up in the video game room to avoid any confusion or conflict. We apologize for any inconvience this may cause.

Play One Piece: Burning Blood against Crocodile!

Charity and Video Gaming have teamed up to bring you the chance of a lifetime! Ever wanted to go up against one of your favorite Voice Actors in a video game? Now you can! Play One Piece: Burning Blood against John Swasey, voice of The Pirate Warlord Crocodile! As you enter the room you’ll have the option to buy a raffle ticket (not required to spectate). Once everyone is in and we are ready to begin, we’ll draw a winner from the raffle tickets to play for one hour with John Swasey! Grab your hats and get ready for one grand adventure! This event will be held in our Main Events room.



Each tournament will have a $5 entry fee. Entry fees will go into a prizepool split depending on the # of entrants*. There will be free play of every game available, so you can still have fun without paying. Tournament sign-ups will only be open on Friday, Aug 19th.
