Team Street Fighter 5 vs. Team Super Smash Bros. Melee... in Arms? Event on July 18th

For the most part, there's been very little interaction between the Street Fighter and Super Smash Bros. communities. You very rarely see the two communities compete with one another in a single game.

It seems that is about to change. HyperX is apparently hosting an event on July 18th that will pit a number of top SF5 players up against SSBM games, based on fan votes.

One game that is guaranteed to be at the event is Nintendo's newly released Switch game, Arms. While SSBM players are probably more familiar with the Nintendo than the SF5 players, it doesn't seem like either team has any sort of advantage.

Team SFV is composed of FOX|Tokido, FOX|Momochi, FOX|Chocoblanka, FOX|Justin Wong, BST|Daigo, CYG|PR Balrog, RB|SnakeEyez, and PG|Punk. Meanwhile, Team SSBM is made up of TL|HungryBox, C9|Mango, FOX|Mew2King, G2|Westballz, TL|Chudat, TL|Chillindude, TL|Ken, and TSM|Leffen.

This event will be taking place on HyperX's Twitch channel. It's possible we may see a crossover of these two player groups in other games like Super Smash Bros. and Street Fighter if fans vote for them.

Which team do you predict will win the arms segment? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
