Headstomper 2018, dubbed by its organisers as “Scandinavia’s Greatest Fighting Game Tournament,” takes place between July 27-29 and features tournaments in Tekken 7, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, Super Smash Bros. 4 and Street Fighter V. It’ll be held at Nørrebohallen, a venue located in central Copenhagen, Denmark.
The tournaments in Tekken 7 and Street Fighter V both feed into larger, developer-organised tournament series – the Tekken 7 event is a Tekken World Tour Challenger Tournament, and the Street Fighter tournament is a Capcom Pro Tour Ranking event – which adds an extra incentive for top-level fighting game players to travel all the way to Denmark.
It says on Headstomper’s website that all events kick off on Saturday (Friday is just for hanging out), but it hasn’t yet been determined how long the tournaments will last.
