We love fighting games and the communities that player them, so it was a no-brainer that we made our way to COMBO BREAKER. It’s a fantastic event that brings fierce competitors and old friends right into our backyard here in the Chicago area. Our weekend was jam-packed with so many fantastic moments to highlight. Here are a few of our favorites.

Just before the final 8 players butted heads on the main stage for Killer Instinct, we released a trailer for the Anniversary Edition.

Congratulations to all competitors,especially @LetalisVenator, @DevilMayCare4, @AlexVazco, @Ajramos99, @WolfSlayerNinja, and your #CB2024 KI top 3, @WheelsFGC, @ValoraxeFGC, and @SonicDolphin117.
