Major League Gaming announced today that they will have a new arena in Columbus, Ohio. Titled the MLG.tv Arena, the venue is designed to be state of the art, allowing hosting and broadcasting of gaming events throughout the year. At the size of 14,000 sq., MLG is confident that the venue will provide the same experience of a large-scale MLG Pro Circuit with a more intimate setting. Features include bleachers for hundreds of spectators, sound proof booths for players and teams, a broadcast station for live commentary, and video screens for broadcasting. The first event held in the MLG.tv Arena will be the MLG Call of Duty: Ghosts Pro League Playoffs. The event will run from October 24-26.
Japan will not be the only country receiving the New Nintendo 3DS. Announced today in an Australian focused Nintendo Direct, the New Nintendo 3DS will arrive in Australia November 21st. Still no official US or Europe release date, but most likely expected sometime next year.
