The event will go down in the famous Palais Des Festivals in Cannes, during the “Festival International des Jeux” (International games festival – a good way to have fun side activities at the venue!).
We will be helped by the association “LeFrenchMelee”, which will take care of Super Smash Bros tournaments.

Travel tips: You can from now on book either a plane to Nice (32 km/20 miles – 30 minutes by train from the airport) or a train directly to Cannes (10 minutes away from the venue)


More info as it happens, but the real question is:


Which games do YOU want to see there? I know there are other organisations that can run side tournaments, if there is demand!

What, no Blazblue/ Uniel/ Persona/ DOA!!?!?!?!
