« Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown STA Tournament 1.3 This Friday (4/27) feat. Cool Prizes and the Return of LA Akira! »
The Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown tournament saga continues this Friday with the third installment of the series! Like the previous tournaments, SEGA will be at Southtown Arcade with the authentic arcade board and a slew of exclusive prizes for top placers.
This time around they have a special set of signed Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown arcade cards from AM2! These will go out to the top three finishers while the first place finisher will also receive a limited SEGA Controller hoodie. Even for those who don't place in the top 3 they can still get your hands on a sweet VF5: FS shirt which will go out to places 4-8.
Beyond that, word on the street is that LA Akira will be returning with a few new tricks up his sleeve. He had an amazing fight with our local champ Renzo at the last tournament, taking the first place spot in a down-to-the-wire match. If you cant make it, be sure to tune in at our TwitchTV Channel to see some more high level matches from these guys.
If you're in the area, the tournament starts at 7PM but be sure to show up a little earlier to get some casual hands on time with the game before we get down to business. See everyone there!
