The show will be opened by children's TV favourites Dick And Dom, PacMan himself will be wandering around, and the Gaming And Retro Tech Zone will play host to the cream of the UK's Minecraft YouTube talent, including AmyLee33, LDShadowLady, Ashdubh, Tomohawk, SalemsLady, NettyPlays, SmallishBeans, EthanGamerTV and GeorgeMinecartMayhem. All there to meet, play and answer your Minecraft and YouTube questions. You will also be able to see them over in the Media Zone, where you can look behind the scenes of virtual world celebrity.
There will also be an Appletics & Kids Food Zone - proving that time in front of screens doesn't have to be physically unhealthy, a Digital Esafety Zone with advice and information for parents and children, the Digital Coding and STEM Ninja Zone, and the Digital Angels zone, which hopes to tempt even the most unenthusiastic or unlikely child into enjoying digital tech. The Digital Angels also know all about products for children with disabilities, special needs and language issues, so feel free to go along and see what they suggest for your children.
The most recent announcement is that the video game publisher BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment UK will be bringing two of its latest releases to showcase at the family event - including the hotly anticipated DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2 following its launch on 28 October. Project CARS ‘Game Of The Year’ will also be showcased, with the addition of Oculus Rift VR offering family gamers the most realistic racing car experience possible.
