Mayamada launches Gamepad event in April by Aisha Anime


On Saturday 11th April, we're hosting the first GamePad! Their latest event following on from the hugely successful Frozen Yogurt Party in 2013.

Gamers, music lovers and everyone in between is invited to join everyone for this one day party at the Petit Miracle Hub, West 12 Shopping Centre in Shepherd's Bush (Central Line).

Resident DJ team Tigerblood will keep the music going throughout, featuring tracks from video game inspired hip-hop artist Mega Ran.

Games, Games and Games

You will be able to race against your friends around Mushroom Kingdom in Mario Kart Wii U, or get into the fighting spirit with the new and frantic Super Smash Bros Wii U. Be sure to bring your 'A game' as prizes will be up for grabs...but only if you can beat the mayamada co-founders at the end of the night.

Two lucky people will be drawn at random and face off for the chance to win a selection of mayamada goodies.

For the low tech gamers, Giant Jenga will be making a return at GamePad! Where you’ll be able to battle it out for the title of Jenga King or Queen.

Anime Clothing...and Chocolate?!

Shoppers are welcome too as we'll have our full range of original anime inspired clothing and comics on sale with selected t-shirts and sweatshirts available at promotional prices!

Your sweet tooth will be taken care of, because not only will there be amazing cupcakes handed out to early arrivals, our popup shop will also be fully stocked with delicious Samurai Chef chocolate bars.

Available in three flavors - Crunchy Noodle, Cherry Blossom and Green Tea - these bars were a massive hit during their debut at the London Anime & Gaming Convention where they sold out in just two days. 

Make sure you get their fast and grab your favourite flavour while you can!

Cosplayers and long time fans of mayamada (including myself) will be delighted to know a free poster will be given with any purchase to anyone in cosplay or already wearing mayamada clothing!
