UP Cebu’s Otakufest 2017 to feature Esports tournaments for SFV, Dota 2 and Overwatch
More than just cosplay culture, this year’s UP Otakufest will also share its spotlight with Esports.
The annual University of the Philippines Cebu Otakufest is set to welcome a new crowd this year as they open up competitive video game tournaments for popular Esports titles, Dota 2, Overwatch and Street Fighter V.
Probably not the first time that gamers find their place among the crowd of cosplay enthusiasts, the UP Otakufest 2017, dubbed “The Matrix” celebrates its 10th year after its inception back in 2007. The event describes itself as “a convention with as much variety and fan-driven entertainment as possible, that was not limited to a certain genre and is open to all fandoms” and welcomes enthusiasts not only from the Anime culture but fans of Mecha, Card and Board Games, and of course, Video Gamers.
Registrations for the UP Cebu OtakuFest X Esports competitions are now open and interested participants can head on to the official registration web pages:
The UP Cebu Otakust 2017 will be this coming Feb 18, 2017 at the University of the Philippines Cebu Grounds, Cebu City, Philippines.
