In the wake up of Game On Expo being cancelled this year, the convention still wanted to do something for their attendees. What they came up with is a drive in gaming event called: Mega Drive In (remember the Sega Genesis? In Japan and Europe it was called the Sega Mega Drive). The event will take place on August 8 – 9 at WestWorld of Scottsdale from 6PM-12AM.
Friday night will have a screening of the 90s film The Wizard along with a live performance from Snailmate and a Super Smash Bros tournament to end the night.
Saturday will have a first look at the film Max Reload and the Nether Blaster followed up by a virtual cosplay contest and ending with another Super Smash Bros tournament.
“Cars will have the ability to tune into an FM station to listen to the movies, and activities on the main stage.
Masks will be required for all attendees who are participating in the game tournaments, or who are heading the restrooms as well. For attendees in their cars, masks are optional.
We have only a limited amount of parking spots available for both nights, and ticket prices are for each car and not for each person. Tickets will NOT be sold on site, and pre-registration is required. We’re looking forward to coming together responsibly and in a safe way to focus on some positive fun.”
The cost is $40 per vehicle with a maximum of 8 people per vehicle. You can read more about the Game On Expo Mega Drive In here.
