Fans of cards and tabletop games will find their share of activities and like minded enthusiasts there with presence of games like Magic : The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons or Warhammer!
But what is Comic Con without the presence of Video Game related stuffs?
Dragon Quest to the rescue. The year was 1986 when the first Dragon Quest was released and ever since then, this classic cult of a game have changed many of our lives in some way. Be it the Original Dragon Quest classics or the Dragon Quest Heroes or the Dragon Quest Builders or Manga, this title have been with us from the beginning and is still going strong today. In the Asia Comic Con this year, old and new fans of the franchise alike can come together and witness the re-creation of historical moments from the Dragon Quest series in the forms of beautiful canvas painting and stunning looking dioramas. Also present is the life-sized version of Dragon Quest’s Legendary Armor, Eldrick’s Equipment. I am only including some photos here, there are plenty more to be seen at the actual event and frankly speaking, this is something you would want to see with your own eyes. Walking around that hall is like walking down a memory lane. Good experience.
