Digimon World Tour Announces Full Tournament Lineup & Rules

January 16th, 2015. Digimon World Tour announced the full details of their Digimon Celebration event today, which will take place three weeks from now on February 6th in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The event has been moved an hour forward to 12 PM, and it will end at 12 AM. The Digimon Celebration will feature tournament play for Rumble Arena, Rumble Arena 2, and Digimon All-Star Rumble. These will be the only sanctioned events with prize payout; tournament play for other video games, virtual pets, or trading card games may be organized on-site. For further details on the tournament rules, see the DWT webpage.

There will also be cosplay, fanart, and trivia contests on-site. The cosplay contest will be split into Craft and Exhibition divisions, with the Craft division reserved for cosplays designed, sewn, and constructed, while the Exhibition division is reserved for store-bought or commissioned cosplays, and cosplays made through clothing alteration. The fanart contest will cover only the visual arts, and participating artists may bring either a physical copy of the artwork to present at registration or send a high resolution PNG file to World Tour's dedicated email address by January 31st. For further information, see the DWT webpage.

Digimon Celebration will take place at the Victory Pointe gaming lounge in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on February 6th, 2016. Tamer Union will be traveling to provide on-site coverage of the event. The event is being organized through Facebook, and currently 59 persons have committed to going. 138 others are "interested," and 346 invited. In addition to the gaming and cosplay events that day, the Celebration will feature artist duo Ramen Bento as a vendor, selling Digimon plush toys, stickers, and magnets.
