Sweet sweet sweet victory…YEAH!

The Game Awards 2018 have come and gone with more than a few exciting surprises but its also important to note a couple of great wins for the fighting game community.

Dominique “Echo Fox|Sonic Fox” McLean was voted Best Esports Player of 2018,  rounding out a very successful year for the multi-title fighting game player.  Echo Fox|Sonic Fox not only won Evo 2018 in Dragon Ball FighterZ but also became the number one player for Injustice 2 for the second year in a row at the Injustice 2 Pro Series 2018 Grand Finals.

While his achievements in fighting games are undeniable, there are also many who see him as a shining example of diversity in Esports which makes this a big win for more than just the FGC. Check out his acceptance speech below!

And speaking of Dragon Ball FighterZ, the licensed anime title that rocked the world by Arc System Works and Bandai Namco Entertainment, it also won an award last night, making DBFZ the Best Fighting Game of 2018. It certainly rose above and beyond the expectations of the licensed anime fighting game, with its solid gameplay, groundbreaking visuals, and pitch-perfect adaptation.

Dragon Ball FighterZ has become a shining example for not only licensed titles but for all games within the genre. Hopefully, Dragon Ball FighterZ continues to see support throughout 2019 and for many years to come.

Congratulations to Echo Fox|Sonic Fox and everyone behind Dragon Ball FighterZ! It’s been an incredible 2018, here’s to another year of greatness.
