According to Kotaku, students can go to the Konami school and learn how to play several video games. At the school, lecturers can teach them how to play games such as Pro Evo, eBaseball Powerful Pro Baseball, DotA, and Fortnite. Of course, video game lectures wouldn’t be as useful without hands-on experience. The school also offers gamers hands-on training for these games.

Even more impressive is that Konami’s teachers are all real-life esports pros.
