As part of a solidarity and inclusion initiative, the 10th edition of the Winter Clash gaming event will have a special area with adaptive controls for people with functional diversity.

The Tiburón Gaming Foundation will be in charge of the special video game area for the enjoyment of fans with some type of limitation.

Likewise, part of the proceeds from spectator tickets for the event, to be held on March 23 at Pedrín Zorrilla Coliseum in Hato Rey, will go to the Education and Rehabilitation Society (SER by its Spanish initials) of Puerto Rico.

“We are excited that all gamers can enjoy this experience without any limitation and at the same time contribute to the efforts of SER de Puerto Rico to continue with its legendary work of positively impacting the quality of life of its participants,” said Ricardo “Mono” Román, producer of First Attack and captain of Team Red Rooster.

Winter Clash 2024 will be the first international tournament in Puerto Rico for the Tekken 8 categories. There will also be Under Night In Birth Sys Celes and Granblue Fantasy Versus Rising tournaments, and categories such as: Street Fighter 6, Mortal Kombat 1, Super Smash Bros, Ultimate, Dragonball FighterZ, Guilty Gear Strive, The King of Fighter XV and Valorant. The previous First Attack event last year received great support from participants.

Winter Clash 2024 will have areas of virtual reality, retro gaming, dance tournaments (Dance Dance Revolution), interactive dynamics and raffles, and this year will include the card tournament category (Trading Card Games).
