[no-lexicon]It seems Nintendo isn't the only company with big E3 plans for fighting games. Capcom has announced that they will be running a special 8 man invitational tournament to celebrate the release of Ultra Street Fighter IV alongside their Capcom Pro Tour event at E3.
The eight players are as follows:
- EG Justin Wong
- EG K-Brad
- EG Ricky Ortiz
- EG PR Balrog
- YBK Jayce the Ace
- Level|Up Alex Valle
These six will be joined by two mystery Japanese players being flown out by Twitch to compete on a "special eSports stage" being constructed just for E3 by Capcom. This tournament should be a great indicator of what the pros can do with the new expansion to Street Fighter 4 after a week of retail practice. $3,000 will be up for grabs.
We'll be reporting on this invitational alongside the Capcom Pro Tour, so be sure to look out for our recap. [/no-lexicon]
