The main event will be Street Fighter III tournament, that will gather 32 players in the finals and possibly 64 players in total. Like the previous year, B64 is planning to bring some well known faces to make the event more entertaining and popular. The arcade will allow the tournament to be tracked like vie Stream, but the details are not specified. It is known that there will be also organized minor events, such as the tournaments in SFA3, Street Hoop and CueClub. Two more games will be included but they remain unknown for now!
These news are confirmed by Boulevard 64 arcade. It is also confirmed that any recording will be forbidden, so probably only the registered arcade users will be allowed to track the events through Stream.
There are rumors that the tournament budget will be huge this year and that the top Japanese pro player will be invited (Daigo Umehara), but they will most likely not happen. However, Hustler confirmed that at least one big name will be brought, just like the previous year.
