Konbo's 'KO' series of arcade fighting tournaments continues, in association with Rushdown Edinburgh. This time we're celebrating the 20th anniversary of the arcade release of the classic King of Fighters '98 with a special KOF tournament! We're running brackets for both King of Fighters '98 (arcade) and the latest installment in the series King of Fighters XIV (PS4).

The event is also officially supported by SNK themselves, and we'll have SNK merchandise to give away as bonus prizes on the day! More details on this closer to the time.

Venue entry is free as usual, spectators welcome. Tournament entry is £5 per game, payment to be collected on the day at the venue. Prize pot split for each game will be 60% 1st place, 30% 2nd place, 10% 3rd place.
