Street Fighter 25th: The Global Connection - recap trailer by Richard Li

Posted by Catalyst
December 13, 2012 at 10:56 a.m. PST
The Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Global Tournament Series took place in locations like Brazil, Japan and the United States for about a six month period. Richard Li shot video at the grand finals to show how the community, the players and the games we love are so intricately tied together.

Tightly edited and beautifully composed, this is a great look back at the 25th Anniversary for Street Fighter and what it meant to the people involved.

Via Capcom Unity and Haunts.

it was a great idea and a great tournament with the exception of the "street fighter loser bracket off-screen matches". that was simply SH!T. otherwise, it was great and I hope they'll do this every year - maybe a two days event, but include mvc3 as well or something, and keep the time window : D

Man I feel kinda crummy that I didn't work hard enough to make it to top 16 in any.....Worked so hard, lost it right when I could get out of the polls in NY...next time man. But this was my first major so I am proud I was considered top 50-70. Got to play Gootecks, Chris G, Sanford Kelly, FloE, Lucky D. I am content with the way it went just hoping I could have gone further. Great tournament makes me want to go to more, just gatta have the money down.

See how the crowd reacted when Daigo won against Infiltration in Winner's Final?

People love Daigo, they love him as a person, a gaming icon and a legend.

Infiltration is just somebody who is really good at playing fighting games, he needs to diversify his portfolio, become more Hollywood.

Capcom should do this more. Although they need to region lock entries. Americans shouldn't be able to qualify out of america and Japan shouldn't be able to qualify outside of japan etc etc etc.

This would make it a truly international tournament.

This was an international tournament but it was not a tournament between countries. The main reason is that Capcom doesn't have staff in every country to organize these qualifiers for them. The only way for it to be like the Olympics would be if every country organized their own tournament at their own cost.

Running a two day event would have more than doubled the cost of the Grand Finals minus prizes while Capcom still makes no money out of this. They've already spent $500,000 to organize tournaments that were virtually FREE for the players with large amounts of prize money. Give them a break.

@4

You're right, and are you going to pay as much at the other events as you did this one to make it happen? :D

Shut up and enjoy what you can get, pls.
