In an effort to inject new blood into the Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown scene and stimulate growth in the community, longtime player L.A. Akira of Industry VFX is introducing a special award to the normal Wednesday Night Fights festivities in order to reward those that show dedication to leveling up. All you have to do is sign up for the Virtua Fighter portion of Wednesday Night Fights and place better than your fellow rookies, and L.A. Akira will cut you a $50 check.

Further rewards come from taking games against L.A. Akira himself, with each one netting you an additional $10. So in the best case scenario, you can send Akira to losers, eliminate him, and then place the highest out of the tournament’s new competitors to score a total of $90. This award will be presented every week at Wednesday Night Fights beginning tonight, so be sure to check it out if you live near Super Arcade in Walnut, California and have an interest in the game. The address has been included below.

1211 N Grand Avenue
Walnut, CA 91789
