Splatoon eSports Tournament to launch in Japan

With Splatoon shaping up to be Nintendo’s most creative and original intellectual property this year,  the game’s competitive nature is reaching new heights with an eSports tournament. The tournament is scheduled to run in Japan with over $1 million dollars in prize money. Moreover, the tournament will also be featured along with Puzzles and Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition. Eight cities in Japan will hold 40 of the Splatoon events including Tokyo and Osaka, with the grand finals being held from January 30 to January 31 of 2016. Whether or not tournaments of this caliber will hit North America is not certain, but considering Splatoon’s popularity, a sanctioned tournament in the states does not seem like such a far fetched notion and might become a reality.

I live in Southern California and I am a college graduate who enjoys playing video games both new and old. However, I am a very selective gamer and I tend to play games from my favorite genres most of the time, but I am still open to anything that peaks my interest. What games I can review or provide editorials for is mostly dependent on whether I can afford a certain game and if I have an opinion about the game that I wish to express. Anyway, I intend to contribute general gaming news and reviews to Cynosure Gaming as much as possible in order to inform, entertain, and unify gamers of all kinds.
