Apex Series 2014 Registration Is Open, Features Pokemon X/Y, SkullGirls
The Apex Series 2014 eSports FGC tournament has officially opened up registration. Core fighting game fans are encouraged to sign-up now and participate in the tournament where there's a chance to walk away with some sweet cash prizes and an ego full of good tidings.
The tournament organizers sent out word along with a couple of neat updates about the Apex 2014 showdown, including that the tournament will be sponsored by Plantronics, the product manufacturer who we recently worked with to give away their new prototype headset that hasn't even launched yet, the RIG headset.
Plantronics wants to get in on the eSports scene to show their support and open gamers up to the high quality gear they have available to suit your audible gaming needs.
Anyway, getting back to Apex – the tournament will feature all the latest and greatest fighting games, including singles and tag Super Smash Bros bouts (and it would be cool if they had tag-team titles at EVO for Smash Bros.), as well as support for the Super Smash Bros. Project M rendition, which is usually used for tournament purposes anyway. Everyone's favorite Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom will be on hand along with Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, one of my personal favorites King of Fighters XIII, Namco Bandai's Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Injustice: Gods Among Us.
In addition to standard fighting games that everyone is expecting to see on hand are also a series of side-events that will also be held at the Apex Series 2014 event as well when it takes place in January next year in New Jersey.
Pokemon X & Y, the highly popular game for the Nintendo 3DS, will be one of the headlining side-events at the tournament, along with Reverge Labs' Skullgirls, Shin-Megami's Persona 4, BlazBlue, Soul Calibur, Mortal Kombat and Arc System Works' Guilty Gear: Accent Core +R.
You will, of course, need to register for the games you're planning on participating in, hence why registration has opened up early. Already, if you check the site you'll see that slots are filling up fast as gamers the world around will want to show up at the event and prove to everyone just how big a gamer they are and how legit their skills are.
With the advent of eSports breaking the niche corners of the market and aiming to find a place in mainstream gaming and entertainment, it's nice to see events like Apex Series stepping onto the scene and stepping up. The support they're receiving from Plantronics is also nice, especially given that they also announced that select participants will be able to win free wireless headsets for participating, with the press release noting...
The breakthrough audio technology company is offering multiple GameCom X95wireless headsets as a bonus for select tournament contestants. With prize bonuses of this caliber, Apex 2014 strives to build upon its never-ending goal to deliver a top-tier competitive experience for gamers from all over the world.
If you think you have ovaries of steel or gonads of titanium, you can try your hand at the Apex Series 2014 tournament by registering over on the official website. Register now before November 10th otherwise you'll be looking at higher prices and stiffer competition.
