Hey everyone! Hope you all have recovered from the amazing weekend we had at PSX and Capcom Cup. Another big congrats to Kazunoko for taking home the grand prize at the tournament! We had a ton of announcements go down at the Keynote at PSX, which Haunts wrote about here a few days ago, but we also followed that up with a bunch of information at Capcom Cup the next day. Here are all the details in case you missed it!
Capcom Pro Tour 2016
Capcom Pro Tour will be taking place again next year! With a baseline prize pool of half a million dollars, the tour officially kicks off on March 18 th with Final Round in Atlanta, Georgia, featuring Street Fighter V as the official game. A new game means new competitors, new rivalries, and even fiercer battles than ever before! I’m super stoked to see what kind of action will take place on the tour in 2016. We’ll have more details on the tour in the coming months so stay tuned for updates.
Street Fighter Resurrection
We also announced that the team behind the hit live action series, Street Fighter Assassins’ Fist, will be working on a special Street Fighter V webseries for Machinima, titled Street Fighter Resurrection! The debut teaser trailer can be seen here !
We’ll have more information to share early next year. It will be worth the wait, I guarantee.
