Carousel Teams Up With Play Expo For A Prank Wario Would Be Proud Of

With the North’s biggest gaming event just around the corner, Carousel and client Play Expo came up with a plan to communicate the shows move to town and its better transport links by taking over the city centre’s busiest tram stops and renaming them with the help of a team of cosplay characters.

St Peter’s Square became Tetris Square, Piccadilly Gardens became Rainbow Road and Shudehill became Silent Hill. The whole Metrolink map has been renamed in celebration of the show which takes place on the 4 and 5 May at Manchester Central.

Can you name the games the stops came from? See the full map below.

Play Expo will feature almost 1,000 free to play gaming screens with a huge range of games to play from retro favourites like Pac-Man and Mario right the way up to current blockbusters like Fortnite and Minecraft. The show also celebrates all elements of the gaming industry with a host of cosplayers, tournaments, industry guests and even careers advice for those looking to work in the world of gaming.
