North America

Japan

  • A teaser trailer has been posted on the X-Count project youtube channel. Kusumondo will be facing another player who hasn’t been revealed yet. The date is unknown as well. This project is hosted in Osaka but they have worked together with Mattsun in Tokyo to host all the X-Count information in the ssf2x.net domain where the Tokyo tournaments are usually announced. It’s nice to see these two areas in Japan working together this way.
  • Daigo is adding some more hype to the upcoming Kemonomichi battle between Kotaka Shoten and Ito DJ. He posted a video where he talks about how DJ wasn’t played seriously in the scene until Ito came in the late 2000s (15 years after the release of the game) and made DJ a relevant character in tournaments, opening the doors to new players after him and even causing some changes in the tier list (according to MAO).
  • Another long set found in the old Japanese arcade streams. A 30 minute set from 2016 between Mattsun Ken and Yuzuru DJ.
  • Space Shuttle weekly team tournament (Chubu) with Futachan Ryu and MAO as team captains and the guest visit of Ando Old FeiLong. [source: MAO’s nico channel]
  • Gamespot Versus special tournament (Kanto). A very high level 3vs3 tournament as part of their XV3on3S series. Besides Yakitori beasting with his Old Hawk as usual you can also see the best ChunLi’s in Tokyo facing each other several times including the decisive match.
  • North vs South tournament from the HL-SEGA arcade (Kansai) by Shogatsu. KKY Dhalsim and Shogatsu himself are defending their teams in the final.
  • Gamespot Versus weekly team tournament (Kanto) with Kawasim Dhalsim and Aoba Claw as team captains and the guest visit of Bazoukha Boxer from France. [source: GSV youtube channel]
  • Game Daytona Shiki weekly tournament (Kanto). With their usual “winner stays on” format. There are always 2 laps. This week’s final is between Tomoza Boxer and Ochamaru Honda.

Europe

  • Konbo and Rushdown Edinburg associations joined forces to organize a tournament in Edinburg (UK) on March 25. It will have New Astro City cabinets and a £50 bonus to the winner on top of the pot split.
  • BeatBy44 association had their second monthly ranking battle in Nantes (France) with a final between MMK and TheDead and with a newcomer player called Fappy who dares to play Hawk and Gief as his mains. Videos will be coming soon. Bracket
  • The same BeatBy44 group has been reminding everyone that their biggest event of the year is coming on April 7 with the Nantarena 18.1.

North America

  • The first qualifier of Tournament of Legends III took place last weekend at Winter Brawl with players coming not only from the US but also Canada and France. Congratulations to Krost for being the first qualified player! For some reason the brackets are down right now. They will be posted here if they get fixed. Video | Results
  • WNF @ e-sports Arena in LA took place on Wednesday with a final between tomo Ryu and eltrouble Dhalsim. No brackets available. Video
  • Monday Night Fights @ Arkadeum run their #66 weekly event. The final this week was between H-Zero and illegalBracket | Video
  • The Lost Ark arcade in NC run another Super Turbo Sessions of casuals. It was all recorded in their stream archive.
  • IFixMachine also had their Super Turbo session in NY and it was also recorded in their youtube channel.

Japan

  • In order to enjoy Ito‘s mastery of multiple characters before his participation on Daigo‘s challenge, Opemai Claw has posted a 40 minute set between Ito Ryu and MAO Claw on his channel. Any Ryu player who wants to learn how to play against Claw should watch this set. He plays a more defensive style than Futachan Ryu but still using all of new Ryu’s tools with precision to counter MAO.
  • Mattsun announced the dates of the X-er tournament, their 3rd edition. It will be on March 18. X-er is one of the 4 majors happening in Tokyo every year. In this case, it’s a 2vs2 tournament with the rule that only those that have never won a major in the past (in the history of the game) are allowed to participate.
  • Some more gems found by Xgamerz in the buried old footage of the Japanese arcades. An 18 minute set from 2016 between Yuuvega and Sashishi Ryu, and a 10 minute set from 2015 between Muteki Guile and MB DJ (his main is Boxer).
  • Space Shuttle weekly team tournament (Chubu) with Futachan Ryu and MAO as team captains. This week’s highlight, besides the usual weird intro, is Prince ChunLi using Guile, which was the character he was using in the early days. He does a perfect to a Dhalsim player at minute 10:55 which is not very common to see. [source: MAO’s nico channel]
  • Gamespot Versus special tournament (Kanto). The fancy rule this time is that they made two teams separated by age. “Youngs” vs “Olds”. Read the video description if you want to know who is the oldest and who is the youngest.
  • North vs South tournament from the HL-SEGA arcade (Kansai) by Shogatsu. The very O.G. Mori Boxer and Takanotsume Zangief are defending their teams in the final.
  • Gamespot Versus weekly team tournament (Kanto) with the team victory decided in the very last match between the two captains, Kawasim Dhalsim and Palestina ChunLi. [source: GSV youtube channel]
  • Game Daytona Shiki weekly tournament (Kanto). With their usual “winner stays on” format. There are always 2 laps. This week’s final is between Aoki Cyclone Zangief and Tomoza Blanka.
  • Playland F1R 2on2 tournament (Tohoku). From the remote arcade in the very far north of Japan. As always, teams and timestamps are in the video description.

Europe

  • Ladosenet run their monthly ranking battle with 26 players and with Isimorn and Zarghatt making it to the final. Video | Bracket
  • SWGA Bordeux run a local tournament with the following final podium: Wolmar, Soon and Kazuhya. Unfortunately, there are no videos available.

Chris Delp has provided a full list of these posts written in the Free Play Arcade group. Last week, the post was about Ryu far standing strong.
  • This week, on February 23rd, our beloved game turned 24. Really looking forward to next year’s 25th anniversary to rock the party!
