Red Bull is hosting yet another Street Fighter tournament this year, and the player roster just keeps getting better. If you're at all interested in watching Street Fighter V, the Red Bull Kumite 2017 tournament is something worth looking out for.
The tournament will take place on May 27 - during the event, a total of 256 players will compete for a chance to win a grand prize. On May 28, any winners from the previous days and any prestigious players lucky to have received an invite will fight it out till the grand finals later that day.
So far we have a total of eight professional players have been invited to the Red Bull Kumite event. The first four to receive their invitations were Tokido, Xiao Hai, PR Balrog, and RB. The biggest name to stand out here is, of course, Tokido - a player that has already battled his way to the grand finals of two previous Kumite events from Red Bull.
A couple of days after the first four players were announced, four new players were brought into the mix by Red Bull. These four are Nemo, Infexious, Mister Crimson, and Bonchan. All of these players have come a long way in their respective fighting game communities so it'll be very exciting to see them all battle it out in Street Fighter V during the tournament at the end of May.
Are you excited for this? We'll keep you updated with any more player announcements as they happen.
