PlayStation Experience 2017 has come to an end, which means Capcom Cup 2017 has crowned a champion! Whether you visited our booth at PSX, attended any match at Capcom Cup, or were watching it all from your couch at home, thank you for the support as we bid 2017 farewell. It’s been an incredible year for Street Fighter V as we brought Akuma back for Season 2 and introduced five brand new characters to the series, each with their own unique stories, designs, and playstyles. Season 3 will add all-new fighters to the roster, but we’ve also got four familiar faces that should make all Street Fighter fans excited for 2018!
When Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was announced at PlayStation Experience 2016, we called upon players around the world to form teams of intergalactic heroes, world warriors, and peacekeeping robots. We’ve enjoyed seeing the amount of creativity exhibited by the community and look forward to more awe-inspiring plays. With the one-year anniversary of the announcement coming up, we have decided to invite more heroes to play Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite with another Free Versus Mode Demo Weekend from December 8 to December 11!
If you’re new to the game, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is a fighting game where players select a team of two iconic characters to bring into battle. You’ll also choose one of six Infinity Stones, which all have unique abilities, to further customize your team to your liking. If you have ever wanted to witness Gamora and Rocket Raccoon taking on Ryu and Chun-Li, this game is definitely for you!
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.
Hello all Street Fighter V fans! We’re winding down the Capcom Pro Tour, getting closer and closer to Capcom Cup 2017.
For a second straight year, we offered Capcom Pro Tour DLC, which helped generate a bonus for Capcom Cup’s prize pool. This year’s bonus contribution to Capcom Cup’s prize pool will exceed over $120,000. That means with a base prize pool of $250,000, the Top 8 finalists will compete for a prize pool worth more than $370,000 and rising at Capcom Cup 2017.
We want to thank all of our fans for the support they’ve shown in the CPT DLC initiative. The CPT 2017 DLC is still available and because many of you asked for it, we brought the CPT 2016 DLC back at a reduced price. The offer lasts until November 29 so you still have time to purchase the DLC and contribute to Capcom Cup’s prize pool!
Hello, PlayStation Nation and Street Fighters! We’re thrilled to announce Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, coming to all our warriors around the world on January 16, 2018! As the name suggests, this edition includes the highly-requested Arcade Mode, but it also includes much much more! If you’ve been spectating on the sidelines or waiting for the right moment to join the fight, you’ll definitely want to check this out. Without further ado, let’s get to what’s inside!
First off, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will come with all 28 characters, which includes those from Season 1 and Season 2 – there’s still one more character that we’ll be announcing very soon. In order to introduce more variety in each match, all characters will receive a second V-Trigger you can choose before the match begins! It’s time to see what else your main character is capable of. We’ll be rolling out more details in the future.
