Today is the big day as the fighting game community has been excitedly counting down the hours to the Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable which is slated to kick off this evening at 5 p.m. PDT.

Representatives from Capcom, Bandai Namco, Arc System Works, SNK, Arika, and Koei Tecmo will be in attendance to discuss the genre, eSports, and reveal some hot new content.

Some big names in the FGC development world are slated to be in attendance including Street Fighter 5 producer Shuuhei Matsumoto, Street Fighter 5 director Takayuki Nakayama, Tekken chief producer Katsuhiro Harada, Soul Calibur 6 producer Motohiro Okubo, Guilty Gear general director Daisuke Ishiwatari, general battle director Kazuto Sekine, SNK producer Yasuyuki Oda, SNK director Nobuyuki Kuroki, Fighting EX Layer producer Akira Nishitani, and Dead or Alive 6 producer Yohei Shinbori.

Already we know that there will be announcements for both Tekken 7 and Soul Calibur 6, but we wouldn't be at all surprised to see even more once things get going.

With an entire season's worth of content en route for Street Fighter 5, this would indeed seem an appropriate place to share some of it. Capcom has announced they'll be having their own live stream event on August 5 specifically for SF5 content, but perhaps we'll get a little something to tide us over today.

Check out the live English stream below from Bandai Namco US to watch right along with us as. Those who'd like to watch the original Japanese can do so right here.
