Replay Expo Expands to Celebrate More Nintendo History

Posted by James Newton

Now twice the size

The annual Replay Expo in Blackpool, England has become a highlight of the gaming year for many retro enthusiasts: featuring plenty of classic and obscure games from Nintendo, SEGA, Atari and more, it's a gamer's dream.

This year's show is promising to be better than ever, with a second ballroom added to accommodate twice as many attendees and more consoles, computers and cabinets than ever.

Team 17 will be present as guest speakers, including a "beat the creator" tournament on the studio's classics Worms. If hand-to-hand combat is more your thing, the Brawl4All tournament in conjunction with Electronic Dojo awaits: a huge fighting competition, there's a first prize of £500, an amount not to be sniffed at. There'll also be tournaments on classic Nintendo titles, with prizes on offer there too.

Nintendo is also expected to make an appearance with Wii and 3DS pods, showcasing its Christmas line-up for you to get your grubby mitts on.

Replay Expo hits Blackpool on 5th and 6th November. For more information and tickets head over to the Replay Expo website. You can also keep up with the latest news by following @replayexpo on Twitter.

I helped organise last year - I may well come again to see Team17! We'll be able to talk to them about the good old days of 2nd-generation Worms games, and how rubbish the (current) 3rd generation is in comparison :p

I wish there were retro game expos close to where I live. I'd much rather go to something like this than say a PAX or E3 expo.
