Yesterday, Season 2 of Neos City Brawl began. This incredibly stacked local event featured 14 high level competitors this week, including Flegar, PuppyHavoc, Maverick, Rokso, Coach Steve and more. Before Grand Finals began, Coach Steve took a moment to make a special announcement on stream. Coach announced that he and ReyDelEmpire will be hosting a special new event next month - Battle For Castelia!
Battle For Castelia will be taking place Saturday, May 19 in Manhattan, NY. The event will be streamed by the incredibly talented Bifuteki and is planned to have a large amount of Pokkén setups, meaning all of the attendees will have ample opportunity to play! The main highlight of this event, though, is the prize for first place - a free flight to the North America International Championships, courtesy of Coach Steve himself! The International Championships will be the North American qualifier event for the Pokkén Tournament World Championships, meaning the Battle For Castelia winner will have an opportunity to secure a spot at Worlds.
The currently announced details for Battle For Castelia are as follows:
- Tournament Organizers: Coach Steve and ReyDelEmpire
- Stream by: Bifuteki
- Date: Saturday, May 19
- Venue: Xenozero, 62 Orchard St, New York, NY
- 1st Place Prize: Free flight to Pokkén internationals in July, courtesy of Coach Steve
