Gamers Heart Japan is a 60-min video special dedicated to sharing the videogame community's appreciation for the Japanese game industry and raise awareness for Red Cross relief efforts in the wake of Japan's catastrophic earthquake and tsunami.
Members of the video game community, including Ed Boon, Ken Levine and Tim Schafer, to name a few, will be sharing their thoughts on the contributions the Japanese video game industry has made in the special scheduled to run on April 3rd. Alongside many media allies, G4 and G4tv.com will be supporting this broadcast as well, with the special running on G4tv.com on April 3rd, and a special airing on April 4th on G4.
