Following the success of last year, EB Games have today announced EB Expo 2013, to be held at the Sydney Showgrounds from 4th-6th of October. Tickets are due to go on sale at 10am on the 23rd of April, with the same general admission prices as last year, and a 4 person “Multiplayer” pass to be sold at a discounted price of $129. A family pass is also being offered, for $119.
The EB Arena has been revamped with a 5 story screen, and 3 times the space of last year’s expo. There will be a lot of entertainment this year, such as a video game parade with fireworks, an interactive show called The Dark Room, and Good Game Live, a quiz show hosted by Bajo and Hex. An EB store will also be there to buy merchandise and games, and Home Grown Gaming, showing off local talent in a larger space than last year.
While Nintendo haven’t confirmed their attendance yet, a few third party publishers are confirmed, such as Activision, Ubisoft and Warner Bros. Hopefully Nintendo won’t leave it up until the week before to say whether or not they’ll be there!
