LG Street Fighter IV HD Global Championship Tournament
Remember when I said there would never be an EVO equivalent tournament for mobile players of Street Fighter IV? I’ll concede to being half wrong at the moment. While the mobile Street Fighter community has yet to mobilize and create their own tournaments (nor do I think that will happen after this), LG is launching their own tournament to promote the new LG Nitro and their exclusive port of Street Fighter IV HD. For those who don’t follow the Android scene, Street Fighter IV HD is essentially a port of Street Fighter IV: Volt on the iPhone.
While there will be a global tournament for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition Version 2012, what’s far more interesting here is the mobile tournament, which has a huge grand prize pot of $10,000.
$10,000 is absolutely enough to get mobile warriors to come out of the woodwork to strut their stuff. That grand prize will most likely be larger than the grand prize for almost every console Street Fighter IV tournament this year. As silly as I think it might is to be a part of a mobile Street Fighter IV tournament, I’d do it if the carrot at the end of the stick is $10,000.
Who will be crowned the Daigo of mobile Street Fighter? You can learn more about the LG Street Fighter IV HD Global Championships at their official site. I won’t be partaking in this tournament, but I’ll for sure check out any coverage or live streams they may run.
