This weekend is going to be a great one for fans of pop culture, as Tunku Abdul Rahman University College is hosting 'Game Plan 2016'. Drop by today and tomorrow for two days of intense pro gaming as well as your Japanese pop culture fix.

Here, you'll find more game tourneys than you can handle, including Dota 2, FIFA 17, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, Street Fighter V, even Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby. Pro games aside, there's also some space for casual matches between you and other attendees. 

After Pokémon GO, it's refreshing to see people taking proper Pokémon games as seriously as this.

And it's not just a few of them either.

For the more casual among Pokémon fans, there's Super Smash Bros. and Pokken.

MSI has a booth here with its iconic red dragon...

... along with a VR experience area for visitors

On the pop culture side of things, there's merchandise on sale, and there will be a cosplay competition tomorrow. This will also be your chance to meet special guests to the event, including Japanese Idol Groups, Luce Twinkle Wink and Stella Beats. For the rest of today, though, taking the main stage for the latter half of today is the MSI Dragon Cup Dota 2 tourney.

If you do decide to visit, there's an entry fee of RM20.
