This article is a reminder of the upcoming event.

Fight for the Future! is a charity gaming event where 100% of donations go to Child's Play, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of children in hospitals. Join my friends and me as we participate in a 24-hour tournament that spans 24 different fighting games.

See below for more details (including how you can join in the fun), and check page two for all the titles we'll be playing.


Date of the event

The live stream will begin on Sunday, January 1 at 1 p.m. PST. You can stop by the channel during the event to chat with us or request an online battle with one of our fighters. Also, visit the Facebook page for updates until the big day arrives!

Rules for the tournament

Participants will play each game for an hour, after which a judge will declare a winner for that title. The grand champion will be the person with the most overall victories.

Make sure to check page two to see all the games we'll be playing!
