Tweeted this morning by MLG. Not exactly happy about the time it took to announce this….
KOF XIII will be in the line up at the MLG Winter Championships.
This is major news for the US scene. With already 169 entrants for Final Round, the prize pot for MLG will surely attract an even bigger number, increasing the player base and making SNKP very happy.
The only real problem is for the other tournament organisers who have events on the same dates… (NorCal Regionals is on the 24th).
Here’s the info thx Reiki
