OzHadou Nationals Open For Pre-Registration

Ever wondered how local gamers get sent to Las Vegas to represent Australia at the international gaming tournament, EVOLUTION (EVO)? One of the stepping-stones is OzHadou's national tournament, an annual fighting game institution that kicks off its 10th year in Sydney this February.

In the run-up to EVO, which takes place in Vegas in July, various tournaments are held all over the world where players compete for qualifying points. The OzHadou Nationals is one such tournament where qualifying points can be earned. The competition runs over three days from February 17-19 and everyone is welcome to enter.

The game line-up for 2012 includes Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Soul Calibur 5, and King of Fighters XIII. Players will also be able to compete in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, although EVO qualification points are not rewarded for that category. Side tournaments and casual play will also be made available for those who want to attend but aren't quite ready to face the tough competition.

We'll be sure to write a reminder post in the lead-up to the event to make sure that no one forgets, but if you're keen to pre-register, registration is now open.
