Team NINJA Throws DEAD OR ALIVE FESTIVAL, Votes Send Best NA Players To Japan

DEAD OR ALIVE FESTIVAL is a one day exhibition tournament to be held in Tokyo, Japan at the Osaki Bright Core Hall on August 1st. The top eight players of DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round from North America, Europe, and Asia will be competing to win something not yet specified though the cash value of the prize will be about $3000. Both first and second place will also win flight, lodging, and registration fee for the grand finals of BATTLE ROYAL 2015, the North American DEAD OR ALIVE tournament tour, which will take place at the Northeast Championships XVI in Philly in December.

Entry to the tournament is free, but if you’re in North America, the FESTIVAL only accepts the players who have acquired the most points through BATTLE ROYAL 2015. At the end of East Coast Throwdown on June 15th, the eight contestants with the most points will be posted on Team NINJA social channels at which point the fighting game community will vote on which two players from North America will get the chance to compete in Japan. Details are forth coming on which fighting game community sites will be hosting the votes, but the wining players will be announced on July 3rd.

DEAD OR ALIVE FESTIVAL will be streamed live on August 1st with details on that coming at a later date. If you’re interested, KOEI TECMO and Team NINJA suggest following the DEAD OR ALIVE Facebook page.

A student of games, I play a bit of everything because I like to see what’s out there. Nothing better than first hand experience when it comes to knowing about games. Current game obsession: Anything MOBA (Paragon, Battleborn, Heroes of the Storm), except, ironically, the most popular ones, LoL and DOTA2.
