Gamers Heart Japan special airs this weekend

on April 1 2011


Dozens of video game developers and journalists recently came together to produce Gamers Heart Japan, a one-hour special aimed at spurring Red Cross donations to benefit victims of the recent Japanese earthquake and Pacific tsunami.

The special will be televised and made available online this Sunday, and features interviews with industry folks discussing the considerable impact Japanese games have had on the medium, and on their own careers. Irrational creative director Ken Levine offers his thoughts, along with Bethesda’s Todd Howard, Double Fine’s Tim Schafer, Firaxis’ Sid Meier, Lionhead’s Peter Molyneux, and many more.

Initial air times and channels are as follows:

  • G4TV (United States), April 4, 2AM ET/PT
  • Citytv (Canada), April 3, 4PM all time zones
  • G4 (Canada), April 3, 6PM ET/PT
  • SPACE (Canada), April 3, 7PM ET
  • Sci-Fi (Australia), April 3, 7PM ET

The special will also be available to watch on major online video sources like Hulu and YouTube at roughly 7PM Eastern Time on Sunday, April 3.
