Tokyo Attack
Pachinko Fever
Psychic Drive

Gaming is a major industry in Japan, and it’s safe to say that many anime fans know their way around a controller. Such a sizeable community deserves an equally massive venue in which to carry on and compete with fellow gamers, and Naka-Kon is the best place to virtually smash, stomp, and shred with friends both current and soon-to-be. Come visit our gaming space which will features consoles, arcade machines, tabletop games, card games, tournaments, and more, spanning all seven Courtyard Rooms at the Overland Park Convention Center. For all the information you need, see below, and be sure to register if you have not already, as Kon badges are required to join in on the fun!

A priority of the Naka-Kon Game Room is to foster an environment of camaraderie and friendly competition.

To this end, we ask that Kon guests exercise common courtesy and politeness — ask before joining games, pass your controller to another guest after playing for 10–15 minutes, be gracious in both victory and defeat. Children age 10 and under must also be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.

Fan favorite traveling Japanese arcade Tokyo Attack is making it's return to Naka-Kon this year, along with the always exciting Pachinko Fever!

This year, newly joining them will be Psychic Drive, purveyor of classic games and candy cabinets!
