French Soul Calibur V Launch Tournament Matches from eLive.Kayane

Soul Calibur V doesn’t hit Europe until Friday, but that won’t stop the French competitive scene. Last night, eLive.Pro Kayane teamed with Namco Bandai to host a 64-man (technically 63-man and one woman) launch tournament featuring France’s top players. Today Kayane uploaded two playlists from the event–one of the casual matches and one of the tournament–for over three hours of high-level play. Though I don’t know why they had to call all the matches using a leftover radio transmitter from the Battle of Ypres. Must be a Euro thing.
