Last weekend, Mexico celebrated their first ever Gaming Week. It is a virtual video game celebration in Central- and South America. The event was supported by some main videogames companies, and more than 50 gaming experts and key esports personalities participated the event.
The event took place on the official Gaming Week website, where activities included conferences, esports tournament, exclusive releases and live streamings. More than 50,000 unique visitors visited the website for this event, showing potential and eagerness to participate in esports in Central- and South America. Participants were also able to learn the latest news and product releases among brands that produce gaming hardware and software.
Some of the most outstanding activities were the tribute to the late Mexican gaming personality Gus Rodríguez, internationally recognized for being one of the most creative minds in the country and who was also an ambassador for Nintendo in Mexico.
There was also the presentation of AXOL, a game created by Mexican developers that seeks to help in the preservation of the axolotes, a critically endangered species in Mexico; and the fan challenge to the world’s Super Smash Bros Ultimate champion MKLeo where they were challenged to beat him.
