It is held in a different hall from ACGHK 2019 (Hong Kong 动漫電玩節) and E-SPORTS & MUSIC FESTIVAL (Chinese name: 香港電競音樂節, abbreviation: EMFHK) between July 26, 2019 (Friday) - July 30, 2019 (Tuesday), and This is a different taste from EMFHK, and this event is the main event!
It is not specialized in e-sports, but more like a Hong Kong version of Comiket, including anime and doujinshi. Of course we went to this event as well!
PlayStation4 latest game test play corner
The first thing that greeted me as I entered the hall was the PlayStation 4 play corner.
Of course, the most popular and the one with the longest line was...
FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE! Yes, we were able to experience the game, which will be released simultaneously worldwide on March 3, 2020.
Unfortunately, taking pictures was not allowed in the play corner, so I am sorry I can't give you a glimpse of the games.
My impression of the game is that it is like an action RPG like FF15, with Cloud and Barrett advising you during boss battles.
It was impressive to see that after more than 20 years, the crunchy polygonal FF7 has been remade into a realistic FF7 that looks as if it has entered the real world.
The other game that attracted a lot of people to the event was the game you all know, " Monster Hunter World: Iceborn."
This one is scheduled to be released this September 6, 2019, and Hong Kong hunters were enjoying the hunt at the booth.
Besides the test play area, there was also a PlayStation Store (physical).
Here, many limited edition models were available, including limited color controllers "Alpine Green" and "Berry Blue," and the "Days of Play Limited Edition" PS4 console.
The PlayStation booth also had a "look" corner.
Hunter's costumes and so on...
Sam Porter Bridges, the legendary deliveryman of "Death Stranding"....
Game enthusiasts will be drooling over these items.
Arc System Works, also popular in Hong Kong
The Arc System Works booth was naturally the place to try out the latest Arc System Works games.
The newest Arc System Works game "Nekketsu Kuniokun Gaiden: River City Girls" was enjoyed by many people, both children and adults.
The new roguelike RPG " MISTOVER " is scheduled for release on October 10.
An arcade controller was set up for "Kill la Kill - IF," an action game that was just released on July 25.
Arc System Works is also popular in Hong Kong, and next year the company will release "Granblue Fantasy Versus," which was developed by Arc System Works.
Keep an eye on Arc System Works!
Gaming devices will also be on sale.
Logitech's gaming device corner.
Logitech's ASTRO Gaming gaming products, including headsets, keyboards, and mice, are also on sale.
In Japan, the company is developing its products under the Logitech brand due to trademark issues, but in Hong Kong, of course, the company is developing its products as Logitech.
I was about to make an impulse purchase, but I held back....
VR games are still popular in Hong Kong
As we reported at EMFHK the other day, VR is very popular in Hong Kong.
There were many people at the VR corner.
Especially popular was " Marvel Iron Man VR " which will be released this year.
The release date is still undecided on the official website, and CERO is also planning to review it....
We are anxious to wait and see if it will be released before the end of this year.

There are many things I would like to write about, especially the Doujin Corner and the Anime Corner, but since this is "funglr Games", I'll try to keep it to myself.
