Justin Wong creates community-funded pot bonus for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 at EVO

We've been hearing about huge pot bonuses all year long. $50,000 to Mortal Kombat X from Warner Bros., 50k to Killer Instinct from Microsoft, 50k to Street Fighter 4 from Capcom and 30k to Tekken 7 from Bandai Namco.

One of the games responsible for some of the greatest EVO memories in recent years, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, has received no such love, until now. EG|Justin Wong has teamed up with Filipino Champ, who's recently been sponsored by Panda Global Gaming, and Tempo|ChrisG to build a pot bonus for UMVC3.

Wong has started a Gofundme, promising some pretty great prizes such as training sessions and exhibition matches with the players mentioned above. Hit the jump for more details.

The goal is to raise $10,000 for the top 16 competitors in UMVC3. The fund raiser opened just over an hour ago, and there's already over $250 donated.

This is a great way to inspire a little more hype in the Marvel train, giving that much more excitement to players that are competing in the tournament, and to the viewers watching from around the world.

If you'd like to donate, head over to the Gofundme page. There you can also see the different bonuses and tiers as well as Justin's personal statement on the matter.

Finally, it's important we mention Justin has opted out of taking any of this pot bonus should he place in the top 16 of the tourney.
