東北最大級eスポーツ大会!「AKITA GAMING eNCOUNT(秋田ゲーミイングエンカウント)」が12月21日(土)22日(日)に開催!

Akita eSports Association, the governing body of eSports in Akita Prefecture, will hold one of the largest eSports tournaments in Tohoku, "AKITA GAMING eNCOUNT" on December 21 (Sat) and 22 (Sun).



"AKITA GAMING ENCOUNT" is AGe for short.

AGe is an e-sports festival that transcends gaming genres, bringing popular titles such as fighting games, FPS, MOBA, music games, arcade games, and BYOCs to Akita, transcending boundaries.

In addition to the main e-sports tournament, there will be various events and booths such as social gatherings, stage events by popular streamers and professional gamers, and more.

Since the theme of the game is "Circle" that spreads through games, we believe that each and every player can play a leading role in the game.
We believe that if each and every one of you can play a leading role, respect your favorite titles, and make the best of them, it will lead to a better future for the Tohoku region.
Let's expand the circle of exchange from Akita to all over Tohoku!
