This weekend the Classic Tetris World Championship is happening in Portland, and you can watch it live exclusively on Hitbox!
Avid fans of the 1989 NES version of Tetris are organizing the Classic Tetris World Championship during Portland Retro Gaming Expo this weekend (Oct 17-18). With sponsorships from The Tetris Company and Tetris licensees, you can expect the best of Tetris past and present.
Tune into hitbox.tv/CTWC to follow all the action live from Portland. We will be streaming both the highly-anticipated sixth annual NES tournament as well as the Tetris Ultimate tournament on PS4, which will take place for the first time.
You can enter to win a copy of PS4 Tetris Ultimate by answering the poll on the hitbox.tv/CTWC channel right now! There will also be plenty of copies to win during the broadcasts.
Come watch the masters from all over the world battle it out – including returning NES tournament champions Harry Hong (2014) and Jonas Neubauer (2013). Drop by the Expo or tune into the stream.
If you are attending the Expo you still have the chance to register to play on one or both tournaments. Spectators are of course also welcome and might snatch some awesome Tetris swag while there.
