Big news on the Capcom Cup front as we now have some answers to a few of the questions floating around about this year's event.

First and foremost, Cap Cup 2017 will follow the traditional bracket format, and not use a group phase format. Though Capcom has been entertaining the idea, they've ultimately chosen not to change their approach, at least for 2017.

Capcom Cup will span three days this year, with the first two being played at the Anaheim Hilton just outside of the Anaheim Convention Center..

The first day (Friday, Dec 8th) will feature the Last Chance Qualifier, the 32 competitors will play all the way down to top eight on Saturday and then Finals will be held at the PlayStation Experience on Sunday.

Registration for the Last Chance Qualifier is live now and you can register over at Smash.gg for $20. This tournament is capped at 256 entrants, and on site registration will go up to $40.

You'll get all the details in this week's edition of Wake Up Wednesdays presented by Capcom Fighters, which you can view in full below.
