March is Fighting Games Month!

27 02 2013

The folks at LAN Speed Games in Peoria have officially declared March to be their Fighting Games month. They plan to start it off in style with an Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament this weekend. 


The tournament will take place on Sunday at 1 p.m. until 5 p.m., with casuals starting as early as 12 p.m. that day. There will be a $10 entry fee for participants, which can be reduced down to $7 if an entrant brings their own console, controller, and copy of UMvC3. 

There is no known bracket cap at this time, but the tournament will be double-elimination. The prizes will be $30 for first, a $15 GameStop gift card for second place, and three free hours of game time at LSG for third place.
