Excitement is building all across the country as Capcom will finally drop Ultra Street Fighter 4 to consoles in the USA this Tuesday, June 3rd. Pre-orders have been available online through the Playstation store, Xbox live, and other online shops, so players can download install and be ready to play right when the clock strikes midnight. In preparation for the amount of hype this is going to generate, tournaments have popped up all over the place. Not only for USF4, but for other games like UMvC3, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Smash Bros, and even Tetris!
Starting this Wednesday at Insomnia Video Game Culture, an Ultra SF4 event is being held to celebrate the release of the latest installment of the Capcom fighting game franchise. On Friday, Insomnia is at it again with their Tetris 30th anniversary event, featuring tournaments and other events and prize giveaways officially from the Tetris company. Saturday it all goes down, starting with the UMvC3 Curley Mustache South Invitational in San Antonio, Tx at Ultra Arcade. Many of the top UMvC3 players from all over the south will be competing in this battle royal. Houston, Jan Del Rio, AJ Tucker, JDoge, Scrubeks, and Buckethead will be among those invited to the tournament.
Also on Saturday, GameGuys is hosting their June Monthly tournament, featuring events for Super Smash Bros Melee, Project M, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, King of Fighters 13, Counter Strike and DDR! Later that night, Insomnia is hosting yet another tournament, this time for Ultra SF4!
