There's more at Licence2Play

Licence2Play is not only about the King Of Shooters competition. At StarHub's booth, you will find Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2  and AuditionSEA.

At the Lenovo booth, you can check out the latest IdeaPad Yoga laptops and IdeaPad Y series of gaming and multimedia notebooks.

Cheer for contestants of the Cardfight!! Vanguard tournament, as they battle for supremacy in the trading card game.

With more than 3,000sqm of exhibits to explore, here is your licence to play.


Comics and collectibles

There is something for everyone at Licence2Play. Illustrators and designers will showcase their artwork at the Artiste Alley. You may be able to get an illustration autographed.

Fans of ShiftyLook, the Web-comic site owned by Namco Bandai Games, will get to meet Dax Gordine, who draws Bravoman; and Hitoshi Ariga, the artist of Big O.

It will also be time for comics fans to celebrate ComiFest 2012, which is organised by the Comics Society of Singapore.

This may be your best chance to find that elusive figurine to complete your collection.

 

Cosplay

Cosplayers dressed up as their favourite comics or game characters will be among the attractions.

This year, you will meet cosplay celebrities Ginga Ion and Asahi Martha.

Asahi Martha is known for her versatility in portraying male and female characters; Ginga Ion, who is part of the all-girl cosplay performers VENas Sisters, joins you at Licence2Play.

Aspiring cosplayers may dress up as game characters from Eastern and Western cultures to take part in CosGames.

Qualifying rounds will be held on Friday. On Saturday, people at the exhibition will vote for their favourite characters to enter the final.

On Sunday, the last day of Licence2Play, CosGames contestants perform on stage for a chance to win cash prizes.
