National Fighting Game Tournament This Weekend

The road to EVO — probably the world's most prestigious fighting game tournament — kicks off tonight in Sydney when OzHadou holds their national fighting game tournament.

From tonight through to Sunday fighting game competitors and punters will be able to compete for EVO qualification points in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Soul Calibur 5, and King of Fighters XIII. Performing well at the OzHadou Nationals places players in a good position to represent Australia at EVO, which takes place in Las Vegas in July.

Full details of the event are below. It costs money to enter and there is also a fee to take part in casual play.

DETAILS:

WHAT? OzHado Nationals 10 WHEN? 17, 18, 19 February 2012 WHERE? The Red Room, Level 1, 99 York St, Sydney NSW 2000 REGISTRATION? Yes, registration! You should do that. You should do that right here! FEES? There is an entry fee because these things cost money to run! They also give away a fair amount of prizes during the event. It costs $50 to enter.

    Jelly!
    Oh well, at least we get Shadowloo Showdown :)

    Please note that registrations have closed as they have reached full capacity. However spectators are still welcome!

    Will spectators get a chance to have a go in some downtime on any spare machines?

    No Tekken or MK? Both are at Evo aren't they?

      Oddly, Tekken isn't in the game lineup this year: http://shoryuken.com/2012/01/03/introducing-the-evo-2012-game-linup-and-tournament-season/ - Don't ask me why they are running qualifiers for TTT2 though cause that's not in the game list. The full list this year is:

      Street Fighter X Tekken
      Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Version 2012
      Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3
      Soul Calibur 5
      King of Fighters 13
      Mortal Kombat 9

      I'd say the reason Australia isn't holding MK qualifiers is because the government thinks no-one over 18 plays games in this country.

    3 types of people inside. Tournament, Casual, and Spectator.

    Tournament can play in everything, including the tournaments they enter. Casual can only play in the casual play and DIY tournies (from memory), and spectator can't play anything, and if they do, they are lucky.

    Check out the site linked in the article for pricing.

    The registration for this event was already closed on the 10th... but people can join to watch for free
