Team Liquid will host a 100 Megaman collaboration event on October 2, featuring New York City-based pop-rock band Anamanaguchi.

Chill tunes and Megamen

Anamanaguchi will also be joining in, providing music and relaxing vibes throughout the stream. The American chiptune-based pop and rock band had previously composed the original soundtrack to Ubisoft’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game in 2010, and is comprised of four lead songwriters and guitarists: Peter Berkman and Ary Warnaar, bassist James DeVito, and drummer Luke Silas.

Team Liquid also created this tournament to highlight “one of the most unique characters on the smash roster.” The Box held previous Smash tournaments that took place in the Summer, including the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Singles tournament.

Interested fans can watch the Megaman Smash event stream on Team Liquid’s official Twitch channel or on Hungrybox’s stream once the tournament reaches the top eight at 9:20 PM ET. The official event page provides more details regarding the official bracket and attending players.
