It looks like in eight days Hobby Star Marketing will be announcing the special guests that will be coming to this year's Gaming Expo. The event is part of the larger Fan Expo Canada, a multigenre fan convention showcasing comic books, science fiction, anime, film/television and more. This year's expo will be taking place on August 28-30, 2009 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
Last year's event attracted over 45,000 guests and filled the entire South building of the Metro Toronto Convention Building. In case you've never been to the Convention Centre, it's roughly half the size of L.A. Convention Centre, the location of this year's E3. That's pretty darn big.
Considering the caliber of last year's line-up, which consisted of Electric Playground, Mega64, Pure Pwnage, Amp Your Game, MLG Canada, and plenty of gaming's artists, writers and personalities, I have high hopes for this year's special guest roll call.
