Apex Legends, the hugely successful battle royale shooter, has grown incredibly popular in the world in competitive gaming. With an even bigger fanbase now than when it launched in 2019, fans in Japan need look no further than Akihabara for two new events to look forward to!
The first of which, dubbed APEX LEGENDS x AKIHABARA Festival, is a collaborative event that will feature not just one, but 100 shops around Akihabara that will sell exclusive merchandise related to Apex Legends. Pop-up shops will also appear throughout the area, with attendees who spend over 1,000 yen or more receiving one of twenty exclusive stickers at random.
There will also be a stamp rally held between the stores, where visitors select three legends and go between 16 stores to collect their stamps. Those that successfully complete the hunt will receive a limited-edition Apex Legends clear file.
While 100 different stores will be featured as part of the collaboration event, the pop-up shop is slated to be held at THE AKIHABARA CONTAiNER, and will offer exclusive limited-time Apex Legends goods and a different series of stickers for purchases of 3,300 yen or greater.
To celebrate the collaboration, Akihabara will be decorated all over in Apex Legends banners and decorations. A special Apex Legends Halloween Cafe will also be opening in Tokyo Solomachi Skytree Town, featuring spooky Halloween motifs and character foods!
The celebrations begin October 1st and run until Halloween on October 31st. Be sure to head over and secure your victory in Akihabara! Full details and product information can be found on the official site here.
