The Evo hype train gained some steam this week with the announcement that both attendance and prize pool numbers are breaking records. Chief among the fighting game pools is a Capcom-guaranteed $25,000 for Super SFIV Arcade Edition 2012 in celebration of the series’ 25th anniversary. That’s a nice slice for anyone in the top eight!
Our own Christian Svensson (or Sven, y’know) lays it all out:
“With Capcom celebrating its 25th Anniversary of Street Fighter this year, we thought it fitting that Evo’s Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012 competitors should play for $25,000. Capcom wouldn’t be where it is today without the support of our hardcore fans, and this is just the first of many exciting opportunities to help celebrate this milestone for the Street Fighter franchise.”
Not an SFIV player? Ultimate MvC3 entrants can look forward to a $15,000 pool, and the two-person teams of Street Fighter X Tekken will be playing for $9,000. And if you miss Evo, we still have that year-long tournament series…
Back in January earlier this year, we teased that we had some pretty huge plans in store for this years Street Fighter 25th Anniversary. Today we are happy to reveal a couple of core pieces of the celebration: a huge collector’s set (only available in North America) as well as a giant world wide Street Fighter tournament that we’re backing with half a million dollars worth of prizing and amenities!
Our Capcom-sponsored series of tournaments begins in July and runs right through until December. Games included are Street Fighter X Tekken, Super Street Fighter IV AE v2012, SF III: Third Strike Online Edition and Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. (Dates and locations subject to change):
- July 28-29 in Austin, TX
- August 11-12 in the NY area (location pending)
- August 26 in Taipei, Taiwan (location pending)
- Mid-September in the Tokyo Region, Japan (date and location pending)
- September 27-30 in London, England (in conjunction with Eurogamer Expo)
- October 13-14 in Sao Paulo, Brazil (in conjunction with Brazil Game Show)
- October 27-28 in Los Angeles, CA
- October 31 – November 4 in Paris, France (in conjunction with Paris Games Week)
- December 8 Finals in San Francisco, CA (including players who qualify in the prelim tourneys)
As if that wasn’t enough, the first place SFxT player gets a custom Scion FR-S Sports Coupe! It includes a custom video entertainment system from SCEA, modified exterior from Five Axis and other components from other aftermarket companies.
European Street Fighter fans will have TWO chances to take part in the celebrations, with one event in London taking place during the Eurogamer Expo in September, as well as another event in Paris during Paris Games Week in November! More information on both events will follow shortly whilst we finalise the details.
Lastly, there will soon be a new site where you can share your own SF fandom. Head to http://www.streetfighter.com/sf25 for more info – it’s not fully operational just yet, but it will be soon. More on that to come!
One of the biggest fighting game tournaments in the world just kicked off Today, and will continue across the whole weekend. Shadowloo Showdown 2012 live from Australia has one of the most impressive lineups of professional fighting game players in attendance, including 5 of the UK’s best players: F-Word, Andreas, Don-D, Zak Bennett, and the one and only Ryan (Prodigal Son) Hart!
They will be streaming all of Capcom’s major fighting game titles, Super Street Fighter IV: AE, Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, and Street Fighter X Tekken! You can watch the live stream here, right now is the VIP night where you can see some exciting exhibition matches! I’ve also included an embed of the stream above, so just hit the play button to tune in live and support the UK!
Now that the Ver 2012 update is out (and has been for a while) maybe it’s time to learn a new character. So how about a little bit of Oni? Check out DreamKing’s guide to the even eviler Akuma!
So you’re going to win a round in Super Street Fighter IV, but how do you make your opponent cry extra salty tears of defeat? Cancel into a special or super to add extra hits after the KO! Here’s a tutorial from Snoooootch to show you how it’s done. I’ve done it a few times, by accident, but it does look cool.
Fighting game documentary, Finalroundbats, by Scott Popular is the “First of a series of video documents, following the fights at Finalroundbats Tokyo. Finalroundbats is a brawler tournament held in Tokyo with the aim to form a team of strong Japanese players in order to snatch some prize money from American players at the big brawler event in Atlanta.” They play Street Fighter, MVC3 and some other fighting game that we won’t mention…

Ibuki’s Raida command grab has some unique properties and in this vid it makes it look like one of the most powerful moves in the game shutting down almost everything you can throw at her. Check the description for more info on how and why this works.
And C is for Chun Li, H is for Honda, R is for Rock Man and V is for Jill Valentine. I think that’s everybody Capcom related in Fabian Gonzalez’s video game ABCs. You can buy Gonzalez’s work on tshirts and more at Society6.
A very funny video by Cosmopanda that shows Dan at his best. Or at his big headed and oblivious worst.
