Combo Breaker 2018 May 25th-27th feat. Dragon Ball FighterZ, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Tekken 7, and more

    It’s Memorial Day weekend and that means one thing for the Fighting Game Community: Combo Breaker 2018 is here. Boasting its motto of “No Coasts, No Kings” Combo Breaker is the premiere Mid Western tournament for 19+ fighting games including Dragon Ball FighterZ, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, and Tekken 7. You will also find tournaments for old school games like Vampire Savior and Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

    Run by Rick “The Hadou” Thiher and the Midwest Fighting Game Community, this will be Combo Breaker’s fourth year after The Hadou took over the tournament organizing from the previous tournament title, Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament. This is also its third year in a row taking place at The Mega Center in St.Charles, Illinois.
