Michael Martin's Avatar Posted by Esports Social Media Manager, Capcom

Thousands of Street Fighter V players have battled all year for a spot in Capcom Cup 2017. This weekend at PlayStation Experience in Anaheim, CA, 32 of the best players in the world compete to become the Street Fighter V World Champion and take home over $370,000 in prize money.

For the first time in Capcom Cup history, the event will span three days. The first two days of the event take place at the Hilton Anaheim Hotel right next door to PlayStation Experience. Day one features the first ever Capcom Cup 2017 Last Chance Qualifier, where one player will qualify for the final spot in Capcom Cup. The 32 players will then compete on day two to make the Top 8.
The eight finalists will compete in the Capcom Cup Finals on day three at PlayStation Experience at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Not only will the players be competing for the massive cash prize, the winner will get their name engraved on the base of the Capcom Cup trophy, which is on display at Capcom USA HQ and only brought out each year for Capcom Cup.

    Gonna be an exciting weekend!

    Last Chance Qualifiers is going to be cutthroat. So many players to root for, but only one will make it to Capcom Cup!

    Plus…I wonder what character they’re going to reveal. Sakura was teased last months…we’ll see…

      Really looking forward to that Last Chance Qualifier tournament. A stacked tournament before Capcom Cup 2017? Can’t wait.

    Will the Arcade Edition update add PS4 Pro support?

    Please tell Capcom to add PS4 Pro support for Street Fighter V, Sony. They could very easily make the game 1440p with improved AA and optional motion blur. Really can’t wait for this. This new Arcade Mode puts every Arcade Mode effort they’ve done in the past to shame.
