Konami Digital Entertainment and the Konami Group will establish an esports complex within the Konami Creative Center Ginza (KCC Ginza), which is under construction at its new business base in Japan. The announcement was made at the Tokyo Game Show 2019.

Located within the Konami Creative Center Ginza (KCC Ginza), the new complex will be a distribution studio for esports competitions and related broadcast needs, an esports school, and an interactive showroom, with the main aim to expand the awareness and acceptance of esports among the Japanese and engage current/upcoming global talents.

The studio will be equipped with next-gen gaming devices and technologies that are optimized for esports competitions. Konami will be using these high-tech innovations to ensure all events being held at the studio will run smoothly and can be live-streamed seamlessly to various media outlets and esports viewing platforms.

The school will be providing upcoming and professional esports talents at all levels — players, casters, management, and operations — with advanced training facilities.

The Konami esports complex is expected to open its doors in early 2020. More details can be found here.
