MomoCon Announces Return With $5K Smash Ultimate Tournament

Organizers behind MomoCon 2022 have announced a return to the physical convention and they're going all out for this one. Returning to Atlanta from May 26th-29th at the Georgia World Congress Center, they are looking to fill what they are calling "the largest gaming floor of any convention in the Southeastern U.S." One of the big gaming aspects they're doing will be several esports tournaments for fighting titles, including a $5k Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament that's open to all comers who want to show off their skills. Tickets are currently on sale on their website at the link above, as we have more information from organizers about what they have planned for far.
