Popular Game Characters to Appear at Mascot Event held at Sapporo Convention Center from April 29th to May 1st

With U Co., Ltd. will participate in the “Super Chara Expo in Sapporo” mascot event—the first such large-scale indoor event of its kind in Japan—to be held at the Sapporo Convention Center from Friday, April 29th, through Sunday, May 1st, 2016. Main character Molly and her compatriot Eme from the popular social gaming app Happy Ningels are set to appear in costumed form, at booth number 24 in the Main Hall of the Sapporo Convention Center.

“Super Chara Expo in Sapporo” represents the first in a series of “Super Chara” events being held starting this year, with plans for further such events to be held over the next two years at up to ten different venues throughout Japan. With the event primarily being held indoors, and therefore less subject to variations in weather, an impressive lineup of mascots has been arranged, including scheduled appearances by Funassyi, Nebaru-kun, Sanomaru, and Melon Kuma. Needless to say, a wide variety of popular “Chara” (mascot “characters”) are set to participate, with regional and promotional mascots representing various companies, products, and locales from throughout Japan. Visitors are sure to enjoy the opportunity to mingle with their favorite mascots during this large-scale and entertaining event.

During the Expo, mascot appearances will be accompanied by lively shows and performances, along with sales of various regional products and mascot-related merchandise. A selection of food trucks will provide various outdoor dining options, with further specialties also planned to highlight food items from the different regions of mascots participating in the event. Come enjoy a three-day weekend of mascot-filled fun with Molly and Eme!
