The Battle Strikers Tower Showdown will launch at Toronto's CN Tower this Saturday, November 7, between 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM in search of the first Battle Strikers champion.

"Battle Strikers has revolutionized the game of battling tops, and we are offering a unique and exciting opportunity for kids to put their battling skills to the test in hopes of becoming the first Battle Strikers champion!" said Vic Bertrand, Chief Innovation Officer of MEGA Brands.
