Super Street Fighter 4 AE: Super Battle Opera 2011 details and character stats

Super Street Fighter 4 AE: Super Battle Opera 2011 details and character stats The page by Kyosuke from France has been keeping a running tally of which fighters have qualified for Super Battle Opera, otherwise known as Tougeki. The SSF4 AE part of the tournament features a 2v2 format just like last year's SBO. This year it looks like Super Battle Opera will be featuring the best of the best, with too many talented players to list.

The page has also been good enough to post the AE character usage statistics for this year's SBO.
  • Yun ( 9 )
  • Sagat, Fei Long ( 5 )
  • Yang ( 4 )
  • Dhalsim, Dictator, Makoto, Honda, Ibuki ( 3 )
  • Viper, Juri, Chun-Li, El Fuerte, Ken, Blanka ( 2 )
  • Claw, Gen, Ryu, Cammy, Rufus, Guy, Zangief, T.Hawk, Guile, Rose, Abel, Akuma
    ( 1 )
Note that there is a last chance qualifier for SBO and that MCZ|Daigo and Iyo haven't qualified themselves yet. This is the last chance for this team to make it in.

Tougeki is dated to occur this weekend from Saturday until Sunday. The live stream will most likely be pay-per-view, so whether footage will be available later is entirely up to them.

MadCatz announces sponsorships and their team's SBO attendance

MadCatz announces sponsorships and their team's SBO attendance Team MadCatz has posted on their website that the LowLandLions players Ryan Hart, Kayane, Souli ‘SLS’ Khalifa and Richard ‘Louie’ Hansson are now also fighting under the MadCatz sponsorship umbrella thanks to a recent deal. If this confuses you, just keep in mind that LowLandLions is their own standalone fighting game team that is being sponsored directly by MadCatz.

Next in their news release is that Daigo and Iyo are teaming up to enter Super Battle Opera along with Mago and Tokido being their own separate team. Previously, it was assumed that Daigo was not going to make it into SBO, but it appears that he has attended a last minute qualifier to be able to do so.
