Expect some spooks this Saturday as the FINALROUNDBATS series in Japan celebrates October with its next tournament, HALLOWEEN BASH. FRB//03 will have official tournaments for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 as well as a side tournament for Persona 4 Arena. The winners of the ranbat season for UMvC3 and TTT2 will be invited to attend FINAL ROUND XVI in March of next year.

FRB has built up quite the reputation for showcasing great UMvC3 play from Japan, and expect nothing less for this weekend. OGTY, Shimada, Jackal, ABEGEN, Tonosama and G.X are just a few of the players currently registered to compete. Don’t miss out on the competitions for other titles however, especially for the newly-released console version of TTT2.
