  • What To Watch: January 17-23, 2019 (Frosty Faustings, Master Carnival, and more!)


    Jetsplit

    Here's your weekly What To Watch post for January 17 to 23, 2019!

     

    What To Watch is a weekly series that is published every Thursday (normally), giving readers information on the upcoming tournaments for the week. From local tournaments to free online brackets to majors, we'll let you know what to watch (or perhaps even compete in!) from today up to the coming Wednesday. This week features major events in both North America and Japan!

     

    With the recent announcement that the 2019 Pokkén Tournament Championship Series will use the game's Team Battle mode, we've indicated whether each bracket will be using Basic Battle (1 on 1) or Team Battle (3 on 3).

     

    Did we miss a tournament? Let us know and it will be added to the list shortly.
