ESGS 2018: Fighting Game Arena 2018 Results

For the past few years, ESGS (Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit) has played host to one of the biggest fighting game events of the year. While it’s been called Brawlfest for the past couple of years, this year’s iteration has been renamed to Fighting Game Arena as the former has branched off into its own independent event, which was held a few months ago.

This year’s Fighting Game Arena played host to a multitude of fighting game titles, each with their own tournament held throughout the three days of ESGS 2018. But this year’s event is especially different as the champions of several of the tournaments were awarded with the opportunity to represent the country at EVO Japan 2019.

Namely, the champions of the Tekken 7, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Dragon Ball FighterZ, and BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle will be flown to Japan next year to compete in the respective tournaments at EVO Japan 2019. Additionally, the second and third placers in the Tekken 7 tournament will also be sent to EVO Japan 2019.

Here are the full results of those five titles at Fighting Game Arena 2019:
