Fighting games players to battle in Paris

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

They don’t kick, punch or hit – but that makes their virtual combat all the more intense. #redbullkumite, the international fighting games #competition, is back in #paris this weekend.

Taking cues from karate and other martial arts and disputed exclusively on the Street Fighter V game, the tournament will pit 16 Street Fighters against each other at the Salle Wagram, a classic venue in the French capital.

The unique invitational format will bring together the best 14 players in the world, including Taiwanese GamerBee and American Justin Wong alongside last year’s Evo champion, Momochi from Japan. Street Fighter V has only been out for two months by this point so fast learners will be rewarded.

The final two slots will be awarded to qualifiers from a bracket decided on the day, and with the novelty of a new game, #redbullkumite promises to deliver an intense battle.
