Fighters! Get in on the AZ Competitions This Weekend!

12 04 2011

Spring is in full swing and with it, tons of awesome competitions are popping up. The DEVASTATION team will be holding two tournaments in the next few days, one on Saturday and another Monday night.

DEVASTATION are hitting up a different comic shop this weekend, Samurai Comics to be exact. The team is hosting a Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament on Saturday at the 1051 East Camelback Road store location.

Registration for the tournament begins at 2 p.m. and everything kicks off at 3 p.m. There are no entry fees and it is limited to a 64 player double-elimination bracket. The game will be played on Xbox 360 and competitors are welcome to bring their own fight pads or arcade sticks.

Prizes for this tournament are gift cards to Samurai Comics with $50 for first, $30 for second, $15 for third, and $5 ones to fourth through eighth place winners.

This tournament will be the last one before the teams’ Marvel vs. Capcom 3 ranbats kick off. For more info on these, check out our previous post.

And if Marvel vs. Capcom 3 isn’t your game, the DEVASTATION crew will also be hosting a midnight release event for Mortal Kombat.

The event will take place at the Microsoft Store in the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall and will include a 64 player, single elimination bracket tournament for Mortal Kombat. No entry fees are needed and the game will be played on Xbox 360.

The prizes are fairly awesome, with a copy of Mortal Kombat and life-size Scorpion statue going to the first place winner, a copy of the game for second place, and a $25 Microsoft Store gift card for third.

According to Microsoft Store workers, Portal 2 will also be released on midnight alongside Mortal Kombat. For more information, check out the DEVASTATION website.

And if you’re not digging anything hardcore tournament-wise, AZHP are going to be at the Arizona Asian Festival in Mesa hosting casual gaming set-ups throughout the event.
