Fatality! Dual Mortal Kombat Tournaments in AZ This Weekend

4 05 2011

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 may be all the rage right now, but nothing quite captures the excitement of pummeling your enemy senselessly, then performing a bloody finisher with the words ‘Flawless Victory’ popping up.

This weekend there are two tournaments for the recently released Mortal Kombat (MK9 for those of you counting), both on Saturday.

One of these tournaments will be hosted by local boys Euphoria Gaming at LAN Speed Games in Peoria. The tournament will be for both Mortal Kombat and Tekken 6 for the Playstation 3.

Casuals are planned to start at 12 p.m. with the competition kicking off at 2 p.m. There is a $10 entry fee, with first and second place getting a 70/30 split. The group asks that contestants bring their own controllers or fight sticks to keep things running smoothly.

The other tournament will be held by the DEVASTATION crew at Bookmans in Mesa. This will have a capped 32-player bracket with double elimination and no entry fees are required. Registration for this tournament starts at 12 p.m. and the rounds begin at 1 p.m. The game will be played on Playstation 3.

Prizes include Bookmans gift cards amounting to $100 for first place, $50 for second, $25 for third, and $5 to fourth through eighth place winners. The crew also asks that players bring their own controllers or arcade sticks, as well as arrive early to the event in order to register.

The community has really grown over the years, it used to be really dead around here. You should come down for DEVASTATION, that’s the big fighting game tourney that happens here yearly.
