LPL announces Dragon Ball FighterZ tournament for New Zealand gamers

31 Jan 18

eSports is becoming a worldwide phenomenon letting gamers earn prizes and lots of money for playing video games. New Zealand is jumping on the bandwagon with a new Dragon Ball FighterZ tournament announced by Lets Play Live (LPL). 

LPL has announced via a press release that it will be hosting the 'Arcade Reborn Tour' allowing gamers to try their best at being the best in Dragon Ball FighterZ. This is a chance to let you show off your gaming skills. 

The Arcade Reborn Tour is heading to various New Zealand cities including Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch between February 15th, 2018 until March 31st, 2018. 

If you manage to become a regional winner, you will go on to face the best gamers in the country in hopes to be crowned the New Zealand champion. 

The journey does not end there because the New Zealand Dragon Ball FighterZ champion will go on to fly to Las Vegas, Nevada to compete with other players worldwide at the EVO 2018 tournament this August. 

“The Arcade Reborn Tour allows us to promote esports across the nation, something we are very excited about” – Jordan Lilley, Marketing Manager. “We have a hugely passionate fighting game community in New Zealand, and we are expecting some ferocious competition and inter-city rivalry”.

The aforementioned tournament is available for anyone over the age of 16. In order to register your interest in the tournament, you can click here to visit the official LPL website
