Did you know? VCON wouldn’t exist without Akira Yamaoka!
“VCONCERT got its start after our friend, Akira Yamaoka, visited Mexico for a special show where he performed with a mariachi band,” reflects Mariachi Games Creative Director Mariano Latapi di Carlo. “This experience got us thinking about doing a proper show with Akira, and VCONCERT was born. It’s been a difficult ride financially, but our passion for games and game music has seen us through to our third annual concert, and we couldn’t be more happy to know that fans who can’t join us here in Mexico will also get to enjoy the show via the Twitch stream.”
