Fantendocon is a J-Culture and gaming convention that takes place in Tokyo 🇯🇵 and London 🇬🇧. Over four days, the convention features various guests, live performances, shopping and food. It was founded in 2010 in England and has since excelled in both size and popularity. There is generally two each year: at Christmas and in the Summer Holidays. The next one will be on November the 11th 2015.
Fantendocon is split in to many different areas, where different themes are clustered in to one select area.
Gaming Plaza 🎮
The Gaming Plaza is a plaza dedicated completely to the best games from Fantendo, with many game companies showing their new and upcoming releases in the area. The Fantendo Plaza was formerly known as the Game Park, but was changed to suit the new style of a plaza. It is the third largest section in the exhibition.
