Time To Play The Game: Takii 5 Releases Final Schedule & Vid Game Tourney Previews

Mar 22nd 2008
March 21st, 2008 -- Upper Darby, PA -- Planning an order of events is just as important as coming up with events to have. That is why TAKII Coordinators are proud to announce that after many weekends of deliberations, Chinese buffet outings, & Super Smash Bros. Brawl melees, we have developed a finalized version of our official schedule for TAKII 5 weekend! Featuring an expansion not only into a new panel room, but outdoors, we've made sure that every TAKII fan will have the chance to spend as much time watching our fabulous live performances as they do competing for glory of their own. (TAKII 5 Event Schedule: http://takii.pdnmz.com/event_schedule.html)

A byproduct of the schedule's release is the knowledge of something we have worked very hard keeping under-wraps, but could no longer hold back the excitement for: all of TAKII 5's official Vid Game Tourneys! This season of the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival features 9 different tourneys on the hottest consoles around today.Throughout the weekend, TAKII 5 attendees will have the opportunity to play on 6-8 HD-ready, wide-screen TVs (sponsored by Team TAKII partner, Rent-A-Center), battling friends & foes in a plethora of pugnacious competitions for Vid Game Tourney glory, including (but not limited to): WWE SmackDown! Vs Raw 2008, Pokémon Battle Revolution, Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo ~HD Remix~, & Mario Kart: Double Dash. This season's Vid Game Tourneys also feature a Mortal Kombat Challenge, a Pirates VS Ninjas Challenge, an Ultimate Entertainer Challenge, & the intense Anime Battle Royale.

So, that ain't enough for you, is it? You really wanna go hardcore? Well TAKII 5 takes video gaming to the extreme & then some with a "super"-special Vid Game Tourney featuring....you guessed it....Super Smash Bros. Brawl (with secrets unlocked)! Believe us, playing the new Brawl game for days on end to obtain all of the unlockables was hard work, but a labor of love for our festival fans nonetheless (^_^). Seriously, with 30+ characters, more stages than you can count, & a soundtrack out of this world, we guarantee this will be 1 of the most exciting Tourneys this season to be a part of. Ever wonder how the joke "so King Dedede, Bowser, Ganondorf, & Meta-Knight walk into a bar...." would play out? Play in the Tourney to find out!

Topping off the extreme fusion festival's gaming offering for the weekend is the "always imitated, but never duplicated" unique enigma TAKII extremists have come to know & love as Final Vid Game Tourneys: LIVE On PPV! What makes this Tourney different compared to any other, you ask? Featuring the fusion festival's own versions of Mugen Fighter & Stepmania, participants will get to come out to their own entrance theme music & battle while playing on TAKII's 12ft. x 24ft. projection screen! As if it couldn't get better, we've added a bit more of a WWE-themed twist with the inclusion of some special play-by-play commentary by some of TAKII 5's featured guests & performers. The chills sent down your spine as you play legendary Stepmania Tournamix favorites, or the passion you exude as you face off against the unlikely pairing of Fat Albert & Mother Brain in Mugen Fighter -- are emotions that you can only experience not by thinking about the Tourney, but by being a part of it!!

Work those #1 Contender's Passes (available for purchase at the door during TAKII 5 for only $10.00) to the bone & make sure you enter as many of our Tourneys as possible! When it comes to gaming glory, world titles, & swell swag, it's either make history -- or become history. GANBATTE, MINNA-SAN!
