Inspired by the tournament at the end of the 1989 Nintendo-themed movie The Wizard, this event appeals to video game fans young and old, casual and hardcore. The tournament will feature seven games selected from the past 20 years of gaming history, culminating in an intense onstage final round in front of cheering fans.
The afternoon portion of the event will be held inside the SRGE expo hall, located upstairs from Vera Project. Potential competitors will try their luck by competing for high scores in the Nintendo Entertainment System games Super Mario Bros., Tetris and Rad Racer. The 20 top scorers will be selected to compete in the final rounds at the main event that evening.
The main event, hosted by Jon Pio, Holland Hume, and Esther Rose, begins at 7:00 p.m. and will alternate rounds of onstage competition and musical performances. Each round will reduce the number of players until only two finalists remain to compete for the grand prize. The games for the finals will be Saturn Bomberman, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Street Fighter II, and a secret final round game to be revealed the night of the event.
Musical performances will include sets from Mega Ran, The Icarus Kids, Danimal Cannon and Fighter X.
"Arcade Armageddon brings the best elements from video game conventions together to create a night that video game fans of all ages can enjoy, even if you haven't picked up a controller in years,” said Dan Crowdus, founder of Arcade Armageddon and frontman of The Icarus Kids. “Video games have inspired, challenged, and entertained us for decades, and Arcade Armageddon provides a great venue for game lovers to celebrate the role video games have played in our lives."
