Video gaming convention returns to PR next month
By JOHN McPHAUL
For two consecutive days in February, the Pedrín Zorrilla Coliseum in San Juan will become the scene of Winter Clash 2023, the most important winter video game event in Puerto Rico.
On Feb. 25-26, eSports fans on the island will have the opportunity to enjoy a show full of competitions, entertainment and video games.
“We started the year with the ninth edition of the Winter Clash, but on a large scale,” said Ricardo “Mono” Román, captain of the Red Rooster Team. “Two days in which families of gamers can share and enjoy an unforgettable event. As usual, we will have several areas focused on the most important video games of the moment and we will combine spaces for traditional sports.”
This year, Winter Clash will have competitive categories for Fighting Games and First Person Shooters, and a new category will be the Parent & Son Ping Pong Challenge, in partnership with Metro Sports.
“All the events we promote have as a philosophy to involve families in the world of gaming while incorporating traditional games,” Román said. “On this occasion, we will have a ping pong tournament, a Pac Man competition as part of retro gaming and a ‘party’ with DJs and karaoke with music from gaming movies.”
The Fighting Games categories will be Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Guilty Gear Strive, Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, Dragonball FighterZ, Tekken 7, Mortal Kombat 11 and The King Of Fighters XV. The First Person Shooter games will be Overwatch 2 and Call Of Duty
