Update: This story has been updated with final results.

Cape Town Showdown is back again in 2023 and as you'd probably guess from the name, it's taking place in Cape Town, South Africa.

Notable players participating in this event include RB|Arslan Ash, KDF|CBM, THY|Chikurin, Talon|Book, RB|Anakin, Varrel|Pinya, Falcons|Ghirlanda, Ashes|Qasim Meer, GG|JabhiM, IZ|Yondaime, GG|Callym Beukes, ATK|Gh0st Proxy and many more.

The South African major is back and it's got two main titles that are being focused on this year, Tekken 7 and Street Fighter 6.

Seeing as this is a Tekken World Tour event, that's the headliner game at the tournament and has brought in some international competition to try and snag those points.

There are almost 80 players signed up for Tekken 7 while Street Fighter 6 sits at around 50 participants.

Streaming is being done at Random Select Events.
