Duelling the KOF this weekend!
On a completely different subject– as Toxico mentioned a bit back, there’s a KOF event happening this weekend in Japan called “Duelling the KOF”. It’s probably the world’s largest KOF-only tournament, runs for a whopping 3 whole days. The main title is of course KOF13, which has somewhere around 120 participants. There’s also going to be KOF95,98, 2000, 2002UM.
The KOF13 2on2 tournament(pools below) will have many of the top players in Japan. In particular, look forward to Kaoru and Woo. The two players from EVO are apparently joining hands to take everyone down.
One of the big attractions at this 3-day event will be the “East Japan vs West Japan” 10-on-10 exhibition where they’ll finally fight out to see which side of the country is the strongest. It’s mainly going to be players from the nation’s capital Tokyo against SNK’s hometown Osaka which has a long-time rivalry against one another, so it’ll be rather interesting. What’s more, it’s taking place in the nation’s former capital– Kyoto, which makes it additionally iconic. Not all the top players are in the 10on10 roster, although hopefully they’ll end up in the TBA slots. This event will be taking place on Day 2 after all the finals are over.
The stream URL hasn’t been announced yet, I’ll post it here when it does.
