Street Fighter IV at London's Battle of Destiny

HeavyElectricity June 20, 2008 3

Battle of Destiny is a tournament for the hardcore fighting fans out there – a proving ground in which challengers compete on Hyper Street Fighter 2, Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection, Capcom vs SNK 2 and Street Fighter 3: Third Strike. The best players gain paid flights and entry to the Evolution 2008 tournament in Las Vegas. However, the event offers something for everyone as the finished arcade version of Street Fighter IV will be available to play – a first in the UK! If that wasn’t enough, Capcom will also be showing Super Street Fighter II Turbo: HD Remix, which will be released on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 later this year.

If you’re interested, the event costs £10 to enter and is taking place in The Rocket Complex at the London Metropolitan University on July 26th and 27th. Casual players pay for venue entry on the day, and if you feel like taking on the dozens of players that have already signed up for the competition, you’ll also need to register your place and bring £10-35 depending on the number of games you’re entering. For more details, visit the Battle of Destiny website.

    I’m looking for a SF cab to turn into JAMMA Multi-Game system. God I hate that game…

    Maybe people would play arcade games again… if they had one that wasn’t just a SF clone with all Japanese Anime characters sporting blond mullets. Ya know, something that someone who wasn’t a full blown D&D nerd could enjoy playing too. I’m just saying…
