Mall of America Opening Esports Arena and Studio

Forbes: “The Mall of America in Minneapolis, a pioneer in using attractions like amusement parks and aquariums to draw crowds, is embracing a new kind of experience – esports. The mall has a deal with Wisdom Gaming to create an esports broadcast studio and gaming venue.”

“The announcement could signal the start of the esports era for malls, when having a place to host live-streaming video gaming events becomes an essential ingredient for a modern mall, as experiences replace traditional retail.”

“Wisdom Gaming plans to create a space where it can livestream esports competitions in front of a studio audience, and host other gaming events. The 18,000 square foot space, on the fourth floor of the mall, will also have a gaming lounge serving food and beverages, and a retail shop.”
