When mainstream websites Giant Bomb and Kotaku reported about the recent incident between pro gamers Bakhtanians and Super Yan, it seems to showcase another blow to the fighting game community. For those of you that have not seen video, please view before proceeding!
Now that you have an understanding of the situation, I spoke with Triforce from Empire Arcadia about the recent “Cross Assault” issue and how the mainstream media is handling the situation!
What are your thoughts about the incident?
As a way of celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Street Fighter, Capcom plans to give back to its loyal fan base by hosting numerous international tournaments honoring the series. Additionally, the company will be releasing Street Fighter X Tekken, an all-new standalone product that features action-packed long-term DLC support, new characters on the PS®Vita and even an upcoming fighting competition reality show Cross Assault!
“Cross Assault” begins airing on February 22, 2012 and will feature 10 players split between Team Street Fighter and Team Tekken who compete for pride, fame and a grand prize of $25,000.
