Tokyo Game Show is right around the corner and there is no better place to be if you are a hardcore fan of gaming. Every year, TGS has been the show where all the gaming news breaks and most Eastern developers debut new titles, information, or footage of their games. Mad Catz is excited to be present on the show floor with our pro players doing exhibitions and tutorials throughout the weekend.
Mad Catz is proud to have world-renowned cosplay heroines Linda 'VampyBitme' Le and Amie 'misshabit' Lynn with us at both Mad Catz Unveiled & at our booth during TGS! We'll be sure to show off some of the awesome cosplay from TGS as well, so stay tuned!
At the Mad Catz booth On Sunday, we play host to the Capcom Cup Japan Qualifiers. The winner of the 64-man tournament will be invited by Capcom to compete with seven other players at the Capcom Cup Finals in December. In close collaboration with Capcom Fighters & Topanga Japan, we'll be bringing you one of the fiercest competitions around and you can catch all of it on the Capcom Fighters channel on twitch and Mad Catz TV!
We will also be hosting a Mad Catz Unveiled event on Friday night. In attendance will be the current EVO Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012 champion, DM.MCZ Xian, as well as Mago, Tokido, Kayane, WW.MCZ Ryan Hart and The Beast himself, Daigo Umehara. We’ve also invited some of the top players from Japan and US to compete in a series of exhibitions and dream matches. The headline match will once again pit two former EVO champions against each other as we have our very own Daigo (EVO 2009 & EVO 2010 Street Fighter Champion) take on Infiltration (EVO 2012 Street Fighter Champion) in a first to ten set!
Thanks to our friends at Team Evil Geniuses, we are also excited to see Justin Wong, Momochi & Chocoblanka taking part in our exhibitions & the Capcom Cup event throughout TGS weekend! Justin will be taking part in the Mad Catz Unveiled event and will be going up against our very own Tokido in a heated Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition Ver. 2012 battle!
