Local anime convention Saboten Con is taking place this weekend in Glendale. But you don’t have to be interested in anime to check out an expanded schedule of gaming events at this year’s convention.
In addition to its usual lineup of anime guests, panels, screenings and vendors, Saboten Con will feature multiple gaming tournaments, free play events and even a few video game guests.
Voice actor DC Douglas, voice of Albert Wesker in Resident Evil 5, and Kingdom of Hearts voice actor Derek Stephen will both stop by the con.
There will be two 3DS tournaments for Pokemon X/Y and Mario Kart 7 on Sunday, and AZHP Gaming is hosting tournaments for multiple games as well as casual play throughout the weekend. A complete schedule of gaming events can be found online. Passes are $20-$45. All events will take place at the Glendale Renaissance hotel.
