Time to throw down

Ireland’s fighting game major is back again on the 2nd and 3rd of September, and there’s not long to go now.  We first visited Dublin for Celtic Throwdown in 2015 where we held a small Super Turbo side tournament.  Not bad, but we came back the next year and got double the number of entrants!  Celtic Throwdown is certainly a major that is growing and one of our favourite events.

Celtic Throwdown has plenty of tournaments on offer for stacks of fighting games including Third Strike, Marvel vs Capcom 3, SF5, Tekken 7, Injustice 2, USF4, Guilty Gear XXrd, KoF 14 and of course Super Turbo, and that’s not even the full list!

We will be there with our trusty UD CPS2 and full kit, meaning a 40″ screen for spectators, a screen for the brackets, the head to head CRT setup, headsets and so on.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with the UD CPS2, it’s a CPS2 arcade board that has been modified by Undamned to support Xbox 360/PS3/Xbox One and PS4 controllers (dualshock 4 support currently depends on the pad revision).  More information on the system can be found here.

We had a lot of fun at Celtic Throwdown.  It was great to see an entirely different set of players and to be part of a different scene.  Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful and the event was superbly run. The guys at Celtic Throwdown have supported us from the start and Super Turbo has been integrated into the event as one of the staple games – not just a side tournament; and we can’t speak highly enough of that kind of support.
