GAMING HUB

It’s finally happening! Comic Con Okinawa is diving into the gaming and e-Sports scene!

In our past events, video games were always a welcome addition to our schedule, but with the exponential growth of the gaming and competitive e-Sports community worldwide, it’s only natural it should grow here at Comic Con Okinawa as well.

This year the Foster Community Center will be dedicated entirely to video games! That means for all you game developers out there looking to show off your latest projects be sure to check out the exhibitor registration page. Comic Con Okinawa is looking forward to seeing your work!

So what else can you fans expect to see? Well…you’ll have to wait a little longer to find out.

But one thing’s for sure…whether you’re a pro or a newbie you don’t want to miss this.


                                 Merchandise will be available for purchase during the event. If you can't wait, it's also on sale right now at the Camp Foster Custom Shop inside the Camp Foster Community Center!

Welcome to Comic Con Okinawa!


MCCS Okinawa offers many events for service members and their families on island that are fun for all ages and one of the most popular of these events is Comic Con Okinawa (CCO). Starting as a small library event in 2011, CCO has grown to become one of the most popular annual events in Okinawa with participation numbers reaching over 18,000.

 

This event is hosted on Camp Foster, a United States Marine Corps camp centrally located in Okinawa, Japan. The prime location bridges the unique community of all U.S. military service branches (Marine Corps, Army, Navy, and Air Force), their families, American and Japanese citizens over the epic celebration of all things related to comics, anime, gaming, sci-fi, and cosplay. One advantage we enjoy is being located in Japan—the birthplace of manga, anime, and karate.
