At Namco Station, from 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm on 3rd December 2011, Fight Club is back! But not as we know it. For one day only, over two action packed sessions, Capcom X Namco are throwing their differences aside to bring to you; the UK fighting game enthusiasts, the biggest most illustrious fighting game event of the year: Christmas Fight Club!
You’re probably asking yourself what makes this event so special? It’s just another Fight Club, right? Another chance for you to show your peers that you’re the best at Street Fighter X Tekken, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Tekken 6, Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, Soul Calibur V and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike? Well yes it is, we’ve got all that and more but we’ve also got a very…special…guest:
HARADA-SAN! – Producer of the Tekken series!
He’ll be there to witness your superiority, your infallible technique and your unerring desire to be the best. We’ll have an eight person, single-elimination tournament running in each session for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Arcade and Soul Calibur V, of which selected matches will be streamed live with prizes for the tournament winners. In addition to this there will be numerous exhibition matches where the UK’s top players will face off in live streaming matches. This is your opportunity to meet the creator of Tekken and witness the cream of the UK fighting game community go head to head!
On top of all that, there will be free bowling, free pool and refreshments, a DJ, break-dancers and all manner of free-play arcade machines just in case you wimp out of the tournament early.
How do you get involved? All you need to do is turn up on the day, entrance is free, and we have room for 300 people in each session (first come first served). Upon entry you’ll be issued with a wristband and asked to leave at the end of the session. You’re welcome to join the back of the queue to gain entry to the second session, but we can’t guarantee we’ll be able to accommodate everyone.

The Rising Dead Pack (22/11/11)
Frank West, Nemesis, Phoenix, Ghost Rider
So yesterday we exploded your minds with the amazing alternate costumes for Street Fighter x Tekken. But today we’re revealing that if you don’t like them, or the original costumes, you can edit them to your heart’s content. Here we see Nina Williams with black instead of blonde hair! Of course that’s not the only thing she can change as there are lots of options to mess about with so you can create something truly unique!
The combo videos are already starting to pour on to YouTube and you are going to see so many life bar draining combos weeks and months (years too probably) but here’s one from Desk who is infamous for breaking our games. Pretty sure he’ll discover some more great set-ups and stupidly long combos.
Frank West, photo-journalist, war coverer, zombie slayer and saviour of small American towns did a brief stint in radio. And here for the first time are the recorded sections of his show and he’s still fighting the good fight.
Quoth the zombie-killer: “For a while there, after TV couldn’t handle me and after the Willamette buzz had died down, I found myself causing trouble on the radio. I’m going to share some clips with you just to show how people are always trying to keep me down.”
The highly acclaimed fighting series adds 12 new legends to the robust Marvel VS Capcom 3 line-up, bringing the total overall roster of characters up to 50. This includes zombie-slayer Frank West on the Capcom side and cosmic defender Rocket Raccoon from the Marvel Universe. The new character options also include Phoenix Wright, Vergil, Nemesis, Strider and Firebrand from Capcom and Nova, Iron Fist, Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider and Hawkeye from Marvel.
In addition to new characters, Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 features a host of enhancements and features to improve the game’s balance and online functionality. One of the biggest additions to Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 is the fan-requested Spectator Mode, which allows fighters to watch live online matches together.
Also, available as free downloadable content after launch, Heroes and Heralds is a new single player and multiplayer team-based mode where you unlock brand-new abilities with upgrade cards, customize your favourite character with new powers and compete in groups as either Heroes defending Earth from Galactus or as one of Galactus’ Heralds.
With multiple improvements and 12 new characters, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 brings home the ultimate fighting experience for newcomers and pros alike.
