As was previously reported, the folks over at Capcom have planned a series of tournaments for Street Fighter’s 25th anniversary that will see players qualify in Street Fighter x Tekken, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition, and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix for the main event in San Francisco, California later this year.

After Austin, Texas this weekend, the next tournament is set for August 11th-12th in New York City. While registration is free, a $20 registration fee is required for each game in order to reserve your spot. This money will be refunded when you show up at the tournament. Each bracket will be capped at 256 participants, so be sure register as soon as possible so you don’t miss out. Every competitor will also be given a free Street Fighter 25th Anniversary t-shirt.

Details on the venue, prize pool, additional rules, and schedule have been included below. Registration for the New York stop is now open on the event’s official website, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated when the others follow. Unfortunately, residents of Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, North Dakota, Tennessee, and Vermont will not be able to utilize online registration. Same-day registration will be made available to competitors from those states.

Also, if you can’t make it out to the venue to watch or participate, Haunts over at iPlayWinner announced that they will be streaming all of the events in the tournament series in cooperation with Team Spooky.
