Announced at the very beginning of Melee top 8 at The Big House 6, the legendary European tournament series BEAST is returning for its seventh installment in Gothenburg, Sweden this coming February. Famous for being the great gathering of European talent across Melee and Smash 4, 2017’s BEAST event will also have Street Fighter V as part of its roster, after a successful side event at BEAST 6. This does mean that Project M is falling off the official title card, but expect a side event of some kind organized by PM players at the event.
So far, Swedish natives [A]|Armada, [A]|Android and TSM|Leffen have signed up to attend, alongside fellow Europeans VwS|Professor Pro, Mr. R, Ice and pM|Sodrek. In the trailer, US players Splyce|Nintendude and The Moon are confirmed as entrants, with more US talent hopefully to come in the coming months. The smash.gg page for BEAST 7 is now open for registration and based on the level of play from last year, this is not a tournament you want to miss.
