Don't stop at mobile: Here’s how to cross platform lines at the PGC London Connects X Track

Pocket Gamer Connects London is only a weekend away as we approach January 21st to 22nd.

Today we’re looking at the Connects X track. Mobile might be the headline ticket at any Pocket Gamer Connects event, but no developer worth their salt should be ruling out the alternatives.

This track is for those looking to make the most of opportunities on the Nintendo Switch, or are getting shivers of excitement thinking of the potential in AR and VR technologies.

The Connects X track takes place on January 22nd.
