Gaming is a major industry in Japan, and it’s safe to say that many anime fans know their way around a controller. Such a sizable community deserves an equally massive venue in which to carry on and compete with fellow gamers, and Naka-Kon is the best place to virtually smash, stomp, and shred with friends both current and soon-to-be. Come visit our gaming space which will feature consoles, arcade machines, tabletop games, card games, tournaments, and more, spanning through several of the Courtyard Rooms at the Overland Park Convention Center.

A priority of the Naka-Kon Game Room is to foster an environment of camaraderie and friendly competition.

To this end, we ask that Kon guests exercise common courtesy and politeness — ask before joining games, pass your controller to another guest after playing for 10–15 minutes, be gracious in both victory and defeat. Children ages 10 and under must always be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Come to Courtyard 2, grab a controller, and have a good time!

Welcome back to Naka-Kon, Circean Studios!

Circean Studios is an upcoming game development studio that will be present at Naka-Kon 2021. The Kansas City based studio will be bringing their latest version of their 2D fighting game: Konsui Fighter! Give the game a tryout in front of Courtyard 2.

Tabletop Information

Naka-Kon will have a few tables set up tabletop and board game options. Come by and bring your tabletop, Trading Card Games, and board games to the tabletop area located in Courtyard 2.

Tournament Play

Naka-Kon’s biggest tournament will be returning this year! Along with multiple setups within the Tournament room, we will be running a tournament for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Not into Smash Bros? Don’t worry. Naka-Kon will be hosting several other tournaments this year. For additional information, rules, and registration help, please visit Courtyard 3.

All tournaments are free to enter, so come out and compete, meet new people, and get to the top and win some prizes! Hope to see you there!
