From strength to strength

Major events are like buses – nothing for ages and then two turn up at once!  I’m sure by now that you all know about Celtic Throwdown, but for the benefit of the new players, here’s a quick rundown.

Celtic Throwdown is a yearly major that is held in Dublin and has been growing every year and now attracts attention from international players, including a certain Daigo.  We first heard of it in 2015 and offered to help out with running HD Remix, however this turned into us hopping on the ferry and bringing our entire kit with us.

In fact we love the event so much that we have attended every year and this will be the fifth time we are bringing Super Turbo to Dublin.

One of my favourite things about visiting Celtic Throwdown for the first time was re-living that feeling of being new in the scene and not knowing anyone – it’s a real fun experience.  Celtic Throwdown is so popular now though that you are pretty much guaranteed to run into someone you know!

A couple of other highlights for us is that they run a Puyo Puyo side tournament (the Super Turbo of puzzle games in our option) and have an awesome pub quiz with some very tricky questions.

We love the atmosphere and hope that you can join us!

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.
