Renegades Sign Ryuga, Will Compete At Big House 9

Michigan native Ryuga has signed with the Renegades to represent them in competitive Smash. Ryuga is considered to be one of the best Ike players in the world, and he’ll bring the swordsman to The Big House 9 this weekend in Detroit. He got his start playing Smash Bros for Wii U and transitioned to Smash Ultimate in late 2018.

Ryuga has had a good run so far, winning the Holiday Heist 4 event last december. He also notched a top 10 finish at Frostbite earlier this year. He’ll now turn his focus to The Big House 9, which will be running from October 4th through the 6th. If you’re in the Detroit area, make sure you head down the TCF Center and catch all the action!
