Since it’s a launch tournament the playing fields are pretty level. People will be looking to figure stuff out on the fly which will make for some pretty interesting matches. Anyone who’s pulling through for the event should definitely take a crack at the tournament because who knows, maybe you’re secretly a Super Saiyan God in waiting. The game itself is pretty welcoming so you can just rock up, pick up a controller and soon be throwing kamehamehas at your opponents.

“But what if I’m in Joburg? Why don’t we get any nice things?”. Well, besides having water there will also be a launch event held on the 27th at The Nexus.

So wherever you are why not give it a go? There’s no way you could fail harder than Yamcha.
