Man, not sure if I'd go without some sweet, sweet BEET BEET to sweeten the deal.

It was announced on July 20th last year. Might be a while before we know.

Given the low amount of business, I don't know if they would make another appearance or not.

Bemani Invasion confirmed back at GenCon!

Prices (as far as I can tell):

6:00 pm - 1:00 AM: $20
9:00 AM - 6:00 PM: $14
One hour: $6
Sunday: Free (as far as I can tell)

GenCon pass required.
4 day: $80
1 day Thurs - Sat: $50
1 day Sun: $30

beatmania IIDX 20 tricoro
Pop'n Music Sunny Park
Taiko no Tatsujin 13
DJMAX Technika 3
Dance Dance Revolution X3
Dance Dance Revolution Extreme/ITG
Pump it Up Infinity
GuitarFreaks V8
Drummania V8
Dance Maniax 2nd Mix Append J-Paradise

I know you're just itching to click Reply and post about how the price is too high, but take a deep breath. In... Out... Yes, it is expensive. If you weren't previously planning on going to GenCon, it's a lot of cash. If you were, it's cheaper than playing in an arcade. If it helps, the price tends to make a nice barrier of entry. Unlike Anime cons, the GenCon lines are pretty reasonable. You shouldn't have to wait a long time (if at all) in between games. Others can share their experience.

Update. If the GenCon badge thing is a deal breaker, send me a PM.

They won't take cash, correct? We have to buy and pay in tickets like a fucking carnival?

Correct. Generic tickets are $2. It's kinda lame, but they look at everything as an event. Even free things need a ticket.

So, in conclusion, if you want to play all day erryday Bemani at Gencon then it will cost $140.

As a grown ass man this is not a lot of money and I can appreciate the event since I never, ever could get Tricoro working on my home setup. I can however see how this would be prohibitively expensive to those without a fair amount of disposable income.

More than that.
(34*3)+80=182. Hourly that would be about $2.50.

Do keep in mind that Bemani Invasion represents such a small part of GenCon that it is a side activity at best. Factor in housing, travel, and food, and GenCon is way cheaper than other events.

Welp, bought the badge, tickets, and asked off work.

This is going to be a pretty exciting weekend! I hope to be drunk often. I will volunteer my car for the sweet downtown parking I get.

Hype levels critical! If you want to look for me, I'll be fat stormtrooper #3.
