NJ Gamer Con Presents VR

Not only will we be presenting VR options in our free play arcade. You will also be able to purchase tickets for the Ultimate VR Racing experience!


NJ GAMER CON is the 1st to feature a sneak peak at the upcoming retro-gaming action/horror/comedy, shooting this Fall in the Philadelphia area.

A haunted arcade cabinet from the bowels of the famous Amityville horror house sucks the beautiful daughter of a floundering Long Island arcade into a nightmarish pixelscape. And her only hope for survival are a couple of nerdy gamers who must venture into this world, as they fight together through levels of traps, monsters, zombies and demons. PAY to play. PRAY to survive.

It’s Jumanji-meets-Evil Dead in this FX driven film sure to please retro gaming and gore fans alike!

Nerwall Films and Chapman productions have teamed up for a new venture. Combining their talents to produce a series of fun B-movie style Independent films and a line of comic books starting in Fall of 2018. Their 1st venture is AMITYVILLE ARCADE which will be shot between Philadelphia’s TNT AMUSEMENTS and Allentown, PA.
Headed by Producer Joe and Libby Chapman and writer Newt Wallen formerly of Underbelly and Silvermania, as well as fx masters Joe La Scolla, Ryan Hickey and actress Crystal Quin.

The Legendary Pokemon Showdown: DS Pokemon Tournaments

We all know ALL the best Pokémon are the Legendary ones. Those Pokémon we grind to get, and then we’re told they aren’t allowed in official VGC tournaments. Well, allow NJ Gamer Con to make things a bit more LEGENDARY -with our first ever POKÉMON LEGENDARY SHOWDOWN! You’ll compete against your fellow trainers using ONLY the Legendary and Mythical Pokemon. We will run Doubles in a Swiss system tournament with 4-6 per team (Pokémon Sun/Moon & Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon). We promise this will be an epic battle of the titans. Sign-up starts 15 mins prior to the tournament, and SPACE IS LIMITED! Grand Prize TBA!

Please bring your own 3DS or 2DS and a copy of Pokemon Sun & Moon or Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon; we will not be providing systems or games for this competition.

Make sure your system is fully charged before you arrive, there are limited outlets in the competition room and there is no guarantee you will have access to any of them. If your system loses battery in mid battle it will count as a loss for you and we really want everyone to have a fun time so don’t forget to be fully charged.
