Defend The North (DTN), was New York’s very first major fighting game tournament, organized by Andy Dumornay . With the feel of a rising West Coast tournament, DTN was made to bring on the best of the East Coast’s fighting game competition under one roof.
I partnered with Empire Arcadia once again during this expedition and it was an absolutely insane experience. Growing up around fighting gamers half of my life, this was one of the few times I’ve attended an event that rivaled a sports event. The very same infectious excitement.
I’ll be releasing these as a 3-part miniseries and then the full featurette at the end.
