Who says you can’t have video games at a Comic Con?

Pop Culture and Comic Geekery will not be the only ones at the center stage for the upcoming Asia Pop Comic Con Manila 2016 as Video Games also take their spot at the limelight. From game publishers, communities, retailers and even merchandise creators, APCC Manila 2016 will surely dedicate a soft spot for its attendees from the video game crowd regardless of platform and genre.

While Garena, who made their presence known at APCC Manila 2016 by bringing in the hit MOBA League of Legends, may not make it this year, another game publisher Wargaming will have their share of the multi-geek-culture fest as one of the event’s exhibitors. Wargaming is well known for their titular MMO, World of Tanks, which showcases World War era tank battles which can pit up to 30 players in arena style combat.

World of Tanks success’ has also reached Esports heights with major tournaments such as the Wargaming League featured right here.

In addition to Wargaming, the Philippines’ very own PlayBook Video Game Lounge and Bookstore will also be part of APCC Manila 2016 and will possibly look to feature popular console multiplayer titles, as they are also known to host different gaming tournaments that mostly feature fighting or combat games such as Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat and Tekken.


Playbook isn’t just all about Fighting games though as they also host competitive events for Sports video game titles such as NBA 2K.

But it ain’t just about playing, Video Games at APCC Manila 2016 is also about educating as De La Salle University together with Ubisoft will exhibit their materials for the institution’s Game Development centered academic course, and as well as feature Ubisoft’s best game titles, with planned freebies and giveaways to the lucky attendees.

Aside from actual gaming, APCC Manila 2016 will also be filled with different merchandise and collectibles that are inspired or related to popular video game titles, making sure that it will have something for every gamer, regardless if you’re there to play, to wear, or to collect.

The mad mash-up of different geek and pop cultures that is the Asia Pop Comic Con Manila 2016 will happen this coming August 26, 2016 and will run until August 28, 2016 in the SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City, Metro Manila. The event is highly comparable to other pop culture and comic conventions such as the Comic Con International in San Diego, and has become the biggest of its kind here in the Philippines.

Different Ticket packages are still available at the APCC Manila 2016 Ticketing page.
