What is dtnx?
DTNX is the 10th anniversary of NYC's premier #1 fighting game tournament - Defend The North. After a whole DECADE, we are still here, by the community and for the community. Defend The North is an annual 3-day major fighting game tournament featuring a wide variety of events tailor-made for competitors, casual gamers, and spectators! Here, you'll find next-gen gaming with some of the best players in the world competing for glory. 🕹️🏆🔥
What do I need to know?
This year, DTNX is being hosted at the Long Island Marriot from Aug. 2nd - 4th. Fun fact, this is THE LARGEST venue Defend The North has ever taken over! Join us for 26,000 sq. ft. of 4-star hotel splendor with an indoor pool, DTN shuttles, free parking, and 24-hour service. If you need to take a moment to reflect on how good life is, you'll be just 45 minutes from Times Square, less than 10 minutes from the beach, and about 30 minutes from JFK, LaGuardia, and MacArthur airports. 👑✈️🌊
