Update: Capcom has released a revised final top 32 bracket after mistakenly placing RES|Pikoro in the 32nd seed instead of the 31st. He will now face off against FD|Fujimura in the first round while NASR|AngryBird is now in the 32nd seed. You can take a look at the updated bracket below.

We're just a week away from perhaps the biggest fighting game tournament of 2018 outside of EVO with Capcom Cup, and now we have the (almost) full lineup of who will be competing in the final Street Fighter major of the year.

Capcom has released the final top 32 bracket for Capcom Cup 2018 with a last second alteration made due to the Latin American Regional Final champion being unable to attend the event due to reasons beyond their control.

SB|Crossover announced earlier this week that he likely would not be able to attend Capcom Cup in the United States due to having his visa application denied by the embassy in the Dominican Republic.

The developer states that they worked with Crossover to try appealing his visa decision, but his application was again denied. His LATAM regionals spot will now fall to RES|Pikoro, the runner-up to Crossover, who Capcom helped secure a US visa to attend the event.

Capcom Cup is set to take place December 14–16 where the new Street Fighter 5 champion will be crowned in Las Vegas, Nevada. You can check out the full bracket on Smash.gg or in the gallery below with Capcom's statements regarding the final placements.
