WHAT IS HADO
The Augmented Reality (AR) Sport
Hiroshi Fukuda, founder and CEO of meleap Inc., dreamed of throwing hadoken like in comics and on TV. This passion burned inside until HADO was realized as a sport in 2014. Today, players can strap on head-mounted displays and armband sensors to wield energy balls and shields on a real-world court as if by magic.
Played by Millions
Since its inception in 2014, HADO has been played in over 26 countries as a sport utilizing technology to cultivate a new community surpassing language, culture and even location.
HADO is all about competition. Every year, the Spring, Summer and Climax seasons let teams battle it out worldwide on an almost weekly basis until the champion is crowned at the HADO World Cup in December.
THREE FEATURES OF HADO
HADO is a physical game that requires great footwork, lightning-fast speed and fantastic agility. Players not only compete against their opponents but also an 80-second clock ticking away to the final buzzer.
HADO balances physical skill and strategy regardless of whether a player is a natural athlete or born tactician. Everyone must work both their body and mind to earn the title of champion.
HADO is a game of offense and defense. Players determine their skill set even before setting foot on the court. The depth of strategy can take teams infinitely deeper into the sport with broader knowledge about the game.
