For the first time since 2019, Nico Nico Chokaigi will be back in person. Well, actually the event is keeping the online component it started up during the pandemic, which will run April 23rd through Aprill 30th.
Nico Nico Chokaigi is a mega gaming party taking place at the Makuhari Messe convention center. It also has events and performances — some of which blend tradition with the latest technology. There’s also a choreographed dance party, a parody nobel prize award (for silly inventions), a collectors’ fair, a creators’ market, tons of original goods for purchase, and, of course, cosplay.
Ticket prices and cosplay cloakroom fees have not yet been announced.
This year, Nico Nico Chokaigi will be held in conjunction with the VTuber Fes Japan, which is a meet and greet type event with popular vtubers (virtual YouTubers — but if you’ve read this far you probably already know that).Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
