Over 400 cosplayers are expected to gather and break the Guinness record
for "The Largest Gathering of Games Characters" today at GamesCom
. We were looking forward to telling you if they broke the MCM London
record of 376 characters ... but we forgot one little detail: Um, all those people need to be officially counted and that seems to take a really long time
With a couple Guinness representatives on hand, each cosplayer has to write down the name of their character and respective game. Following that, a photo gets taken and then they get to bake in the summer sun -- waiting for everyone else to be counted. We felt really bad for the Tetris pieces!
We'll update when we get the official count.Update
