"VCONCERT got its start after our friend, Akira Yamaoka, visited Mexico for a special show where he performed with a mariachi band," reflects Mariachi Games Creative Director Mariano Latapi di Carlo. "This experience got us thinking about doing a proper show with Akira, and VCONCERT was born. It's been a difficult ride financially, but our passion for games and game music has seen us through to our third annual concert, and we couldn't be more happy to know that fans who can't join us here in Mexico will also get to enjoy the show via the Twitch stream."
In addition to ten hours of live musical performances, those who attend the event in Monterrey, Mexico, will also be able to enjoy an art exhibit celebrating 25 years of the Game Boy with 25 different hand-painted Game Boy units that pay homage to 25 different Game Boy titles, retro game shops, a vendor space, and a PlayStation demo area with titles including Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, Minecraft(Vita), Little Big Planet 3, Driveclub, The Last of Us Remastered, Infamous: First Light, and Hohokum.
