It’s time to step up.
If you’ve recently become a part of the fighting game scene, it may come as a surprise that there were a lot more active states which had thriving, competitive circles. When it comes to the East Coast, New York is often the first major area that comes to mind, along with other neighboring states: New Jersey, Philadelphia and Connecticut.
That’s right, Connecticut. From time to time, you can find events hosted in Bridgeport, New Haven and Stratford. Since these events are rather close to the New York borders, various players like Noel Brown, Min, and NerdJosh – to name a few – have come out to offer their support.
Now with 2013 already in full swing, tournament organizer Walter “Bacardi” Padilla is kicking off a new local tourney season with New Challengers. Attendees can look forward to Super SF IV AE 2012 and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 as the premier tournaments titles of the event. In addition, this event will be running tournaments for: King of Fighters XIII, Dead or Alive 5, and. . .Street Fighter X Tekken v. 2013.
Put That Back (PTB) will also be officially on-hand to speak with Walter and his staff, in addition to the local players and out-of-town guests expected to attend. If you’re local to the area, or simply looking for a means to get out of the house, this is definitely an event you don’t want to past up.
Get your practice in (especially if you’re planning to head out to Winter Brawl 7 in a few weeks). . .
So come on out, support the scene and go for broke! Drop by the official Facebook page for additional questions/details.
