Kyūshū

Jump to navigationJump to search

Kyūshū is a Smash region comprised of seven prefectures. These prefectures include Fukuoka, Kagoshima, Kumamoto, Miyazaki, Nagasaki, Ōita, and Saga. On an administrative level, this region would also include the Okinawa prefecture. However, due to the distance players infrequently play in Okinawa. As such, Okinawa is considered a separate Smash region. Kyushu is also the name of the main island which is the third largest in Japan.

The largest Smash tournaments tend to occur in Fukuoka. This prefecture hosts the long-running Shulla-bra series. Shulla-bra hosts Melee and Ultimate competitions. Outside of Fukuoka, Kagoshima and Kumamoto regularly hosts tournaments. The remaining prefectures tend to host tournies more infrequently.

The regions most famous player is Shuton. Shuton was the best Olimar player during Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and has continued to be one of the strongest in Ultimate. However, Shuton has stopped regularly competing in Kyūshū tournaments and is currently residing in Kantō.
