Like previous years, Capcom has teamed up with Sony to provide the Capcom Cup Finals alongside the PlayStation Experience event. This year, the location has changed once again and players will find themselves travelling to Anaheim, CA to take part in the Capcom Cup.
The PlayStation Experience will be held on December 3rd and 4th at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. The Capcom Cup finals will be held on December 3rd at 6PM PST.
During the Capcom Cup finals, the event should be streamed live on Twitch and the finalists will have their chance to play for the biggest part of a large $250,000+ prize pool. The initial prize pool is being increased by crowdfunding from one of Capcom’s Street Fighter V DLC packs. So far, we're looking at a total of $400,000 for the entire event.
Some of the DLC money is also going on production so hopefully we'll have a great show on our hands once the event comes rolling by on December 3rd.
The top 32 players will be playing on December 2nd, and after the 2nd of December, the remaining eight players will be given their invitations to head to Anaheim for the Capcom Cup finals.
Who are you rooting for this year? We've seen a lot of changes in this year's Street Fighter eSports scene. Perhaps the most interesting story was that of John Takeuchi, who has taken Rashid and absolutely dominated with him.
