KelotCup 5 results ft. Nobi, Take, Yuu, Noroma, Hakaiou,

Update: This story has been updated with final results.

Although the main focus of Tekken action this weekend might be on Final Round, there's actually another big Tekken event going on.

If you were confused to see practically no Japanese players attending the aforementioned Tekken World Tour Master's tiered event, there's a good reason for that.

Today, the fifth KelotCup is taking place in Tokyo, Japan, and most of Japan's notable players have gathered to battle it out.

The event is similar to MasterCup in that it's a team tournament, though it's a 3v3 format rather than the 5v5 format that MasterCup traditionally uses, and the interesting gimmick about this tournament is that the three Yamasa players, Yamasa|Nobi, Yamasa|Take and Yamasa|Yuu are split up on three different teams.

It's a one day happening, so tune in and stay tuned until a winning team is crowned out of the almost 100 teams taking part in the arcade event.

Some notable players you can expect to see at the event are Yamasa|Nobi, Yamasa|Take, Yamasa|Yuu, COOASGAMES|Noroma, HakaiOu, Buts, Furumizu, Nishi, CO|Tanukana and many more.

Streaming is being done at Yuu Nobi Gaming Live.
