SEGA Announces $15,000 Virtua Fighter V Tournament

Posted on April 30, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

SEGA has announced that they will be holding a tournament for the upcoming Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown at the 2012 Evo Championships. The game itself won’t be part of the official EVO festivities but the $15,000 pot of prize money will be included as a side tournament at this year’s event.

SEGA’s tournament will be held sometime during EVO 2012, which will run from July 6 – 8th at Caesar’s Palace in Los Vegas. For those wondering why Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown did not qualify for this year’s EVO, a game must be commercially available up to six months prior to the date of the tournament. Alongside the announcement of the tournament SEGA also announced that the PS3 version of VF5 will be used during EVO.
