Capcom Cup 2017 Last Chance Qualifier Registration Is Live, Sign Up Now

Capcom Cup 2017
Hi all Capcom Pro Tour competitors and fans! For the first time in Capcom Cup history, we’re holding a Last Chance Qualifier for Capcom Cup 2017. The winner of that Last Chance Qualifier will take the final available spot in Capcom Cup.

Capcom Cup 2017 matches will take place December 8th and 9th at the Anaheim Hilton Hotel. Spectators are free to attend for those first two days. The Capcom Cup 2017 finals will be held at PlayStation Experience (PSX) in the Anaheim Convention Center. Spectators will need a PSX pass in order to attend the finals day.

The Last Chance Qualifier will be held on December 8th. The online entry fee is $20 and players will receive a free t-shirt with their registration.

Registration is open now at: smash.gg/tournament/capcom-cup-sfv-last-...

The event is capped at 256 players. Online registration will close November 29th.

Players will be able to register on-site December 7th from 5pm-9pm, the day before the event, for $40. All on-site entrants will be placed in the same pool so you might want to register as soon as possible to avoid being thrown in the “death pool.”

Tournament check in on Friday, December 8th is 9am-11am, with the tournament beginning at 11am.

Some notable players who have already registered for the Last Chance Qualifier include:

GRPT|MOV
GRPT|Infiltration
XsK_Samurai
Tempo|Alex Myers
AW|Nemo
LPN
EG|Ricki Ortiz
Infused|Imstilldadaddy

And many more…

We have a spacious ballroom lined up in the Anaheim Hilton Hotel, where we’ll have two stages, plenty of casual set-ups, and kiosks with various Capcom games to demo.

We will also have some of our official Capcom licensed partners in attendance with tons of merchandise for purchase, including Nsurgo, Eighty-Sixed, Split Frame, the Capcom Store, and many more!

In regards to Capcom Cup 2017 itself, we are still finalizing some details such as the schedule, but we will update with a schedule as soon as possible.

After some discussion about using a group format for Top 32, we decided to stick with the traditional bracket format using the leaderboard points as seeding. We have been sticking with the traditional ranking throughout CPT 2017 and wanted to maintain consistency for the finals this time. However, we are still actively evaluating it as an option for next year.

We look forward to another amazing event at Capcom Cup, especially with one last finals spot up for grabs in the Last Chance Qualifier.

Be sure to follow CapcomFighters on Twitter for updates on the Capcom Pro Tour and Capcom Cup 2017. You can tune into the event on CapcomFighters Twitch channel .

Thank you for your support and participation on the Capcom Pro Tour this year.

That’s right, previously available for $24.99, the CPT 2016 Pack is available again for just $9.99 on PlayStation 4 and PC (the PC bundle does not include the PS4 exclusive color and titles.)

And don’t forget, the CPT 2017 DLC is currently available right now, for PS4 and PC . That bundle includes new costumes for Ryu and Ken, as well as the “Champion’s Choice Costume,” the new “Ring of Pride” CPT stage, and CPT-themed colors for all 28 characters.

Capcom Pro Tour Content FAQ
Like last year, we know many of you will have questions about this content. We want to be as clear and transparent as possible about the purpose of this initiative. Please review the FAQ below or shoot us a Tweet @CapcomFighters if what’s on your mind is not covered below!

What percentage of the Capcom Pro Tour DLC revenue is going to the Capcom Cup 2017 prize pool?

A minimum of 30% of the revenue will go to the Capcom Cup 2017 prize pool, and an additional 50% of the revenue is invested into Capcom Pro Tour production. That means that Capcom contributes more than 80% of all CPT DLC revenue directly to support Capcom Pro Tour initiatives.

We’ll be providing ongoing updates throughout the year, so you’ll know how close we are to reaching our goal.

Also, remember that we contribute a portion of our sponsorship, ad revenue, and merchandise sales into the Capcom Pro Tour and Capcom Cup prize pool as well.

How long will the content be available?
We plan on taking this content off of the marketplace on November 29, before Capcom Cup 2017. This is the cut-off point so that we can tally up to revenue that will go directly into the prize pool.

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Pre-order Bonus! Zeku and more Sports Costumes Available Now!

Pre-order Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition to receive the 30 th Anniversary Costumes for M. Bison, Guile, Ibuki, and Karin, along with the Nostalgia Costumes for Alex, Ibuki, Juri, Kolin, and Akuma! Continue reading for important details on this bonus.

STREET FIGHTER V: ARCADE EDITION - PRE-ORDER BONUS

As we announced a few weeks ago, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is coming to PS4 and PC on January 16, 2018! This version will come with the highly-requested Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, new V-Triggers, the Gallery, a redesigned UI, characters from Season 1 and 2, and more! For current Street Fighter V players, all gameplay-related content will be part of a free update on launch day – Season 1 and 2 characters are not included.

Pre-order the physical edition of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition at any of the North American participating retailers below to receive the nine costumes once you pick up your copy:

Here are the nine costumes individually:

ZEKU REAPPEARS

After his mysterious disappearance, Zeku has returned and makes his way into Street Fighter V and will be included in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition as the final character of Season 2. The Ever-Changing Ninja can transform to his younger self almost instantaneously, providing players with two move sets to master.

For more information on Zeku, visit the reveal blog here: www.capcom-unity.com/strumslinger/blog/2...

NEW SPORTS COSTUMES

It takes a great deal of physical aptitude to become a ninja, but there are other activities that may be more suited for other characters. Coming alongside Zeku are the Sports Costumes for Kolin, Zangief, and Karin.

Kolin glides into battle with this graceful figure skating outfit. Don’t expect any triple axels though; you’ll only be met with Diamond Dust.

Since Zangief is already bathing in the prestige of being a world-famous wrestler, this gladiator costume brings him to an arena where life is always on the line.  

This equestrian costume for Karin reflects her taste for the finer things in life, even when it comes to sports.

You can pick up the new costumes now on PlayStation 4 and Steam for $3.99/ €3.99 each.

As always, make sure to follow us on  Facebook  and  Twitter  for the latest Street Fighter V  news.

Zeku, the Ever-Changing Ninja, infiltrates Street Fighter V on October 24!

Zeku, the last character in Season 2, will officially leap into Street Fighter V on October 24! Learn more about the Ever-Changing after the jump.

First seen in Street Fighter Alpha 2, Zeku was Guy’s former teacher, who taught him to master Bushinryu, a style of ninjutsu. Eventually, Guy was able to obtain the title of 39 th Master of Bushinryu. Zeku then disappeared and was never seen again…until now! Zeku has reappeared looking to start his own ninja group and find a new fighting style.

His younger version sure looks familiar!

For players who want to learn the art of Zeku, it will require intense training to hone his multiple skill sets due to his ability to transform. His older self has slower moves and a special flip in the air, which can be followed up with different options to keep the opponent guessing. His younger self is quicker and has a short run, which can also open up opponents.

V-Skill: Fukuro (Older Self), Tenpo Kari (Younger Self)

Zeku performs a special technique that transforms him to his younger self, completely changing his move set. He can then use Tenpo Kari to transform back. Depending on the directional input you press after the V-Skill connects, Zeku will teleport either in front or behind the opponent.

V-Trigger: Bushinryu Shinge Kiko

Allows Zeku to perform a single special dash that can be followed up with a custom combo that deals additional hits. Both forms have the same V-Trigger.

Critical Art: Batsuzan Gaisei

Upon kicking the opponent in the air, Zeku follows up with a flurry of strikes while switching forms before stomping them into the ground. Zeku’s Critical Art is the same for both forms.

Coming alongside Zeku on October 24 are his Story, Battle, and Nostalgia Costumes as seen below:

The Season 2 Character Pass is available for $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 and will grant pass holders with Akuma, Kolin, Ed, Abigail, Menat, and Zeku! The pass includes Premium Battle Costumes with colors 3-10 unlocked and default costume colors 3-10 for each character. Season 2 Character Pass holders will also receive an exclusive PS4 theme!

We’re now halfway through October and the internet drawing community movement #inktober is in full swing. As someone who loves a lot of Capcom characters, I always enjoy coming across awesome Capcom fan art, but I have a particular sense of admiration for artists capable of committing their designs to ink. I find that challenge quite scary in some ways… very fitting for the month of October now that I think of it. Anyways, here’s some amazing #inktober Capcom characters I’ve found online:

@Akimaye

@Raiderfryink

@hooksnfangs

@MeariiGoRound

And to close things off, I highly recommend taking a look at @Outerring ’s artwork. They posted a variety of beloved Capcom characters, making very good use of negative in their drawings. Check it out:

 

 

Can’t wait to see what else you’ll come up with for the remaining of the month. And if you’re participating in #inktober this year too, hit me up with some links to your work!

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition coming January 16!

Prepare yourselves, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is coming out on January 16, 2018! If you’ve been spectating from the sidelines or are waiting for a reason to join the fight, now is the time! In addition to the highly-requested Arcade Mode, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition contains a bounty of new features you’ll want to check out. Let’s get to it!

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will feature all 28 characters, including those from Season 1 and 2 – with one more from Season 2 still to be announced. For those yearning for more options, each character will receive a second V-Trigger, which will significantly change their playstyle. You may need to relearn your main or perhaps try another character, which speaks to you in a different way due to their alternate abilities. Stay tuned for more information on each character’s second V-Trigger!

As it’s our 30 th anniversary year, we wanted to celebrate by making sure Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition contained a plethora of new content. True to its name, Arcade Mode is coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition and will be an experience ripe with nostalgia. Furthermore, we’re adding in Extra Battle Mode, a Gallery, and completely redesigning the UI to amplify the epic quality of this new version. We have much more to share on each of these modes and more content to reveal in the future!

From the beginning, we promised that you’ll only need to purchase the original Street Fighter V, which we’re sticking to. All the new gameplay-related content – Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, a second V-Trigger, the Gallery, and more – will be available as part of a free in-game update for current players! Those who don’t currently have Street Fighter V can purchase Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for $39.99, and it will include everything we mentioned above.

Here's a special message from Executive Producer, Yoshinori Ono!

Thank you for supporting Street Fighter V! As mentioned earlier, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be available on PS4 at retail or as a digital download on both PS4 and PC on January 16, 2018. Please follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook to be the first to learn of more details on Street Fighter V and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition !
