Update: Although a concrete schedule hasn’t been posted yet for every game, we have enough information at this point to get you ready for the final day of VxG 2013.
According to a tweet by Bifuteki, their stream is currently live with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 to be followed by King of Fighters, Mortal Kombat and then Injustice. The approximate start time for KOF hasn’t been confirmed although MK and Injustice have tentative schedules:
3 PM EST – Mortal Kombat Top 8
5 PM EST – Injustice Top 8
Capcom Fighters confirmed via tweet their streaming schedule for today:
12 PM EST – Street Fighter x Tekken Top 8
2 PM EST – Super Street Fighter IV AE Ver. 2012 Top 8
4 PM EST – Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Top 8
Keep in mind all times are “FGC time” which means each top 8 will happen, but the times are just a guideline.
EVO may have come to end, but that doesn’t mean that fighting game tournament season is over. Coming live from the sunny St. Maarten in the Caribbean islands are streams from Video X Games 2013. With a prize pool over $27,000, prepare to watch some of the best fighting game players in the world such as AGE|NYChrisG, VxG.EMP|IFC YipeS, and EG|PR Rog go head to head.
While VxG is hosting other game such as Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and FIFA 13, the focus of the tournament is clearly on fighting games. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Persona 4 Arena, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, and a side event for Super Smash Bros. Melee are games you can watch live.
Streaming is being handled via Twitch and split between bifuteki and Capcom Fighters. Unfortunately, we currently have no details on any community driven side streams for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend or Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus. Below is a tentative schedule for Saturday with all times being Atlantic Standard Time:
11AM – Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition
12PM – Injustice: Gods Among Us
1PM – Super Smash Bros. Melee, Halo 3
3PM – Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Persona 4 Arena
We will update the story on Sunday with event times for the day. I would suggest if you don’t have a Twitch account, register for one and add both Capcom Fighters and bifuteki to your “following” list—that way you receive an immediate email when the channel goes live and you won’t miss a thing.
