Capcom to start UK fight clubs

Remember the good ol’ days, when you could wander along to the local arcade, hang out, play some fighting games, have your money stolen and go home sobbing? Amazing days, now sadly gone forever. Fortunately, something else is now amazing – Capcom’s imminent UK fight club tour!

Over the next 12 months Capcom will visit cities all around the UK giving gamers nationwide the chance to play the very best fighting games that Capcom has to offer, as well as games that aren’t even out yet. In other words, games FROM THE FUTURE. Leading the attempt to break the rules of physics will be Street Fighter X Tekken’s UK debut, and also possibly some other secret things that can’t possibly be confirmed yet. There’ll be DJs playing whatever passes for music these days, food and alcoholic drink. What’s more, all of this will be completely free. Free!

Here are some bullet points to help you report this in an easy and lazy manner:

  • Free games
  • Free food
  • Free drink
  • Free Willy

*No actual Free Willy

The tour kicks off in London on Saturday August 20th at the KO gym in east London, with legendary Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono on hand to sign your Street Fighter paraphernalia and lay down the law in matches of Street Fighter X Tekken. Doors open at 7.30pm and the first 50 people in the queue will get an extra special gift.

It’s not all about London as the tour then continues through the cities of Bristol, Edinburgh, Norwich, Brighton and Liverpool.

More dates and specific venues will be announced over the coming weeks.

Managing Editor of ManaPool, Peter lives in York, UK and is a great fan and master of turn-based strategy games. If he isn't playing one of those, you'll probably find him in a role-playing game instead. He's definitely not afraid to provide a straight up opinion on any game and has a strong like for indie developers. We all start small, after all.

    All in the name of research you understand!
