Tournament Information

Capcom is reconnecting with their street-fighting roots, and they’ve joined up with the EVO Championship Series to roll out not one but TWO hot OG tournaments at the 2006 San Diego Comic-Con. On Saturday, July 22nd, the heat is on at the Street Fighter® II. Hyper Fighting tournament (on Xbox 360™)! On Sunday, July 23rd, it’s another classic favorite: a Street Fighter® Alpha 3 tournament (from the Street Fighter® Alpha Anthology on PlayStation 2™)!

What’s better than TWO hot OG tournaments? How about two FREE OG tournaments? That’s right, the tournaments and registration are FREE! Registration is limited, and we’ll save spots for first-come, first-served walk-on competitors during Comic-Con, but you can guarantee your spot today! Register now, then show up at the event and sign in with us.

Again, registration is free, although all competitors must have valid access into the Comic-Con event where the tournaments are held (see for details about admission).

Dates and Location

The Street Fighter II. Hyper Fighting tournament will take place on Saturday, July 22, from 12:00pm-5:00pm. Rounding out the competition weekend will be Street Fighter Alpha 3 on Sunday, July 23, from 12:30pm-4:00pm.

Both tournament will be held in the San Diego Convention Center, Room 29 C/D


the grand prize winner of the Street Fighter II. Hyper Fighting competition will receive an Xbox 360 console, courtesy of Microsoft. The Street Fighter Alpha 3 champion will win a $250 Best Buy gift certificate. All entrants will receive a Capcom trinket pack!

Sign Ups

In addition to signing up here online, you can sign up in person at Capcom’s Comic-Con booth on a first-come, first-served basis. The Capcom booth will take sign-ups in order of arrival, but when the 128-player bracket is full, no one else can be added.

Here’s an example: If there are 55 online signups that show up to Comic-Con to play, that leaves 73 open positions in the 128-player bracket (128 – 55 = 73). So if there are 119 sign-ups at the Capcom booth, the first 73 of those people fill out the bracket and get to play. The remaining 46 people may be added to a waiting list, and are welcome to watch, but won’t get to play unless someone else fails to appear at the time the tournament begins.


Everyone who signs up online or at the Capcom booth will ALSO need to sign in at the tournament in Room 29 C/D to let us know that they are actually present and intend to play. If you have not confirmed your registration by the time the tournament is scheduled to begin, your place may be given away to the next person on the waiting list. Registering on time is the sole responsibility of the player.

Registration is now closed! If you wish to participate in the event, please register in person at Comic-Con. Remember, it is first come, first serve, so get there early.

Tournament Format

The tournament will run standard double-elimination brackets. Everyone starts off in the winners bracket. If you lose, you continue to play in the loser’s bracket. If you lose in the loser’s bracket, you are eliminated. The winner of the winner’s bracket plays the winner of the loser’s bracket in the grand finals. The contestant coming from the loser’s bracket must defeat the player who won the winner’s bracket two sets in a row to become the champion.

All matches are best two out of three games. Grand finals are best of 5 games for the grand finals.
