The Southeast Asia scene for fighting games is growing even stronger. We now have more details about the Southeast Major for Street Fighter V.
The Southeast Asia Major is considered to be the largest event in the region, and it gained a lot of attention last year. We're expecting to see the Southeast 2017 Major be even bigger
This year, the Southeast Asia Major will take place at GameStart 2017 in Suntec City, Singapore, on October 14. The event will end on October 15.
It won't just be Street Fighter at the SE major this year. Players from three different games will be making their way to the event. Street Fighter V is, of course, the biggest game to make a return this year with the Capcom Pro Tour 2017. We'll also see an event for the Tekken World Tour Asia Pacific Regional Championships and the Windjammers Asia Championships.
Street Fighter V players will be fighting for a chance at a $30,000 prize pool. The Tekken 7 tournament will have a total of $15,000 up for grabs, and the Windjammers tournament has $6,500 on the line.
Guilty Gear XRD REV 2 and BlazBlue Central Fiction will also be getting their own, smaller events.
Prizes for each event will be split between players, with the grand final winner receiving the majority of the prize pool money.
