By on August 3, 2013 at 3:16 pm


After the success of the SEGA Cup early this year in the US, Europe brought the Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown tournament across the Atlantic in today’s SEGA Cup Europe. Hosted at the Dugdale Centre in London, UK and organized by Unequalled Media and Ludus Magnus, this tournament featured a massive £6000 (~9150 USD) prize pot, paying out through the top 8 competitors.

The tournament not only brought out European Virtua Fighter veterans such as Western Wolves’ Ryan Hart, but several players from Japan as well, included SEGA Cup top 4 players Chofu K.K and Razer’s Itabashi Zangief. Due to an instable internet connection the tournament had a few streaming troubles, but below you can find the results of the tournament as well as some of the top 16 action, including the all of top 8.

    Japan keeps taking our western dollars/pounds/euros……


    Oh yeah! And be sure to check out NYG8 next week!


    Gotta say, though. Many times, this stream had production levels that rivaled ESPN! 😀 Made the tournament more fun to watch

  • GHNeko

    Sega/VF knows how to keep it true eSports over everyone over here. And I’m not talking “eSports” but actual eSports.

    FGC take notes.

  • DaydreamCE

    Prettiest stream I think I have ever seen! Was really impressed with the level of play too. Love Sega for putting this together for us!

  • superturbo

    Virtua Fighter 5:FS is a sick game. Definitely needs to be represented at more FG tournaments! Glad the UK had this although i didn’t get to go, i simply have to play it more often and go to other events in the future is all.
