For those who have been checking 3rd Strike recently, there is really nothing much happening with the game besides the usual Japanese match videos. It's only featured in some major tournaments around the United States and no news about a future patch to fix some of the bugs for 3rd Strike Online Edition has been announced.
For SoCal, they are trying to keep the 3S spirit alive with the Japan Arcade tournaments. The current 3S setups are linked through American cabinets with plans to have them playable on Japanase cabinets soon. Players like Michael "Pyrolee" Fauson, JR Rodriguez and Jon "Phreai" Lemerand have attended the past tournaments.
