Gamers Heart Japan is a TV Special airing this weekend in the USA and Canada. It features a great long list of video game developers talking about how Japan has influenced the world of gaming, and how much we all love them.
It’s not just a random show of course, its aim is to raise awareness (and cash) for the Red Cross Appeal.
Members of the global videogame community have come together in an unprecedented effort to create a special video to show their appreciation for the Japanese games industry and to raise awareness for Red Cross relief efforts for the people of Japan.
Titled “Gamers Heart Japan”, this 60-minute special will premiere on April 3, 2011 on broadcast networks G4 in the U.S. and Canada, SCI FI Australia, and Musique Plus and SPACE in Canada as well as online. This special is filled with veteran game industry journalists from all over the world as well as some of the top game makers on the planet who will be sharing their thoughts on the incredible work and talented creators from the Japanese videogame development scene.
The show features gaming luminaries such as Will Right, Ken Levine, and our very own Siobhan Reddy! You can find more info over on the Gamers Heart Japan website
Whilst we’re on the subject, there are still a few days left to bid on our special charity auctions, and our crown auction has been re-listed as a slightly better deal - a LittleBigPlanet 2 Regal Edition - after ebay decided to take it down for being against the rules to auction virtual things, naughty us!
