Fancy yourself a fighter? Think you’ve got the lightning-quick reflexes necessary to beat the best? Here’s your chance to prove yourself, with an upcoming tournament hosted by Gethype and local fighting game aficionados LAGza. Later this month, you’ll be able to pit your skills against other fighting fans in not one, but two games; Tekken 6 and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
To top the day off they’ll be hosting a free exhibition tournament for King of Fighters XIII, determining its eligibility for future tournaments. Details after the jump.
Sodium Overload takes place on January 28, at the Salon burlesque at 112 Sandton Drive in Sandton – so this one’s for Joyburgers only. The R30 entrance fee will grant you access to compete in both games. Registration kicks off at 9:30 am, followed by the MvC3 tournament at 11:30 – right up until the apex. Tekken 6 ass-kickery will then commence, until both games’ grand finals take place.
Why should you bother taking part, other than to help foster a viable local fighting game community? Oh yes, sweet prizes.
