Supercell, the mobile game giant, recently announced that the Clash Royale League World Finals will be held in Tokyo on the 1st of December. That is when this Finnish company will grant a lucky team the lion’s share of the incredible one million dollars prize pool.
Supercell, based in Helsinki, ties its hopes to the increase of the mobile game esports industry as it will more than likely take off. Of course, the hopes are also linked to the raised awareness of the competitive play around Clash Royale. This game consists of a multiplayer online battle arena style title which takes place in real time.
Clash Royale is a major contributor to the amazing $2 billion revenue gathered by Supercell on an annual basis. Its role as a major player in today’s mobile gaming industry is underlined by Newzoo’s – the research firm – predictions that it can draw $70 billion this year alone. That is exactly why Supercell really hopes esports can act as some sort of boost which will allow it to remain a top earner.
Makuhari Messe will be the venue for the finals. This place is a convention center which hosts the largest gaming and entertainment events in Japan. During the event – which will take place all day – you will be able of observing the final tournament for what was the inaugural season of the Clash Royale League (or CRL).
In this event, the top team from each region which was part of the League will oppose the top team from Japan until only one remains standing at the end. That team will receive the Golden Crown Trophy which stands for the first title of Clash Royale League World Champion. Chris Cho, the game’s commissioner said that “the Clash Royale League is such a global competition, and after hosting the World Finals for our individual competition last year in London, we can’t wait to bring CRL World Finals to our fans on the other side of the world in Japan”.
