       For the third year, Texas A&M University- Kingsville will host GATO Con—a game, art, trade and otaku convention—Saturday-Sunday, February 16-17 in the Memorial Student Union Building.

       The event kicks off at 9 a.m. Saturday with activities planned through 11 p.m. that same day. The final day of the convention kicks off at 9 a.m. Sunday and closes at 8 p.m. that same day. Registration for both days is $30 at the door or $15 for Saturday only or $12 for Sunday only.

       Convention organizers—student clubs Gamerz Elite and Otaku Anime Club— said the convention aims to provide A&M-Kingsville college students and the Coastal Bend community with a local gaming/anime convention, since similar conventions held in larger cities are often difficult for college students to attend. GATO Con will include game rooms, table top games, anime viewing rooms, cosplay, a rave, trivia contests and workshops. Vendors will also be available. Participants in cosplay are asked to dress appropriately.
