Level Up Your Summer and Fall 🌞🍂
Greetings, gaming enthusiasts and virtual adventurers! Welcome back to another edition of Unified's monthly newsletter. Summer's sizzle might be fading, but the heat is just getting started for live event season and we're hitting the road once again next weekend for our first stop of the new school year.
From the heart of Chicago, Illinois to the wild wild West Texas, we're setting up esports arenas at anime cons and gaming expos across the country and you're invited to throw down. Whether you're a casual gamer or a serious contender, get ready to make memories, swap strategies, and enjoy the good vibes as we roll into town! Check out our event spotlight and full schedule of competitions below.
Featured Tournaments: Street Fighter 6, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Highlight: Meet the Voices Behind Street Fighter 6! 🥋
Ever wondered who brings the digital fighters of Street Fighter 6 to life with those memorable battle cries? It's time to meet the folks who lend their pipes to your favorite virtual brawlers in the CLUTCH Competitive Gaming Classic!
We're unmasking the voice actors behind the action, and you might just have a chance to face off against the legends themselves on Saturday, August 19th! Join us for a competitive bracket with a top dollar prize pool, and meet the iconic voice actors Jennie Kwan (voice of Suki from Avatar: The Last Airbender) as Chun-Li, the legendary Kyle Hebert (known for roles like Kamina from Gurren Lagann and adult Gohan from Dragon Ball Z) as Ryu, and the talented Zeno Robinson (the voice behind Hawks from My Hero Academia and Goh from Pokémon) as Dee Jay.
Plus, brace yourselves for more coast-to-coast esports adventure as Unified LANs and partnered events light up the U.S. gaming scene! Check out our full 2023 lineup of competitions:
