The Backstage Beat was first introduced to Dragon*Con last year. For those of you who do not know what Dragon*Con is, it is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe!

This is a definitely must do over Labor Day.  The costumes you see will blow your minds! The people, the things… the whole scene is pretty amazing.

Check out this gallery from last year by Leisa Foretich for The Backstage Beat:

There’s a slight wait for the 3DS release however–but that version features a turn-based RPG style, hitting shelves on October 28. Read on for details about today’s release!
