■ About GameWith Cup (GWC)

GWC is an e-Sports prize competition first held in December 2020, with its total view count reaching approximately 390,000*, one of the largest viewer numbers ever recorded in Japan.

To live up to our corporate philosophy, “Create a more enjoyable gaming experience,” we hope that both players (contestants) and viewers will have an unparalleled experience at the competition.

* Total of the view counts for the GWC official channel and GameWith cheering channel

 

 

 

 

■ About the competition

This prize competition will include up to 33 teams of top players in Japan hand-picked by the Secretariat of the organizer on a strictly invite-only basis.

For GWC Vol. 1, content creator Hikakin, who has previously collaborated with our affiliated e-Sports athletes, will appear as a commentator.

As an avid FORTNITE player himself, he is more than qualified to provide gripping commentary. The event will also be live-streamed on his gaming play-by-play channel, HikakinGames.

To bring added enjoyment to the viewers of this FORTNITE competition, we will hold an interlude event, “Challenge from GameWith Cup,” by using FORNITE’s creative mode.

Viewers may also participate in the game by using the commentary function so that it is not just the players involved in the game.
