King of Fighters Receives Its Own Competitive Tour Courtesy of Dream Cancel

By on February 23, 2015 at 5:50 pm


After failing to be selected for this year’s Evolution, the King of Fighters community has banded together for a special tour focused entirely on their series of choice.

Much like similar tours, Journey to Dream Cancel Cup will encompass various events, including Id Global Tournament 2015, Combo Breaker, and even Evo 2015, through which players will be able to accrue points and even qualify outright for the final tournament bracket. Unlike its contemporaries, however, Dream Cancel Cup will be open to the public, allowing everyone to try their hands against some of the best players in the world.

And it won’t be restricted to the most recent entry in the franchise, either: the official lineup will consist of King of Fighters XIII, King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match, and King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Final Edition.

Dream Cancel Cup itself is currently scheduled to take place at Winter Showdown 3 next January.

More details on this tour can be found in Dream Cancel’s official announcement.

    This should be a fun event to watch.

  • Benjamin Martinez

    Well, you won’t have to wait! You can check out the “Journey to Dreamcancel Cup” events such as the one kicking it off; Lonestar Admonition II.

    “After failing to be selected for this year’s Evolution” LOL, let me correct this. “After not giving to EVO a single penny”.
    Even on the oscars “money talks”, why not EVO?
    Hype for KOF 98UM FE.

  • Adiuro

    Thank the gods for Dream Cancel. KOF deserves a hype ass tournament, because it’s a hype game- Despite the low amount of good players. I hope the international scene comes out for this.

    • Benjamin Martinez

      I would say high amount of good players, low amount of bad ones. KOF right now is quality over quantity. Everyone that is left; people who have a good amount of passion for the game and rock at it.

      • Adiuro

        Of course quality over quantity, who doesn’t remember the EVO year where they gave away Mai Shiranui shirts? Over half the pool was people entering just for the sick shirt!

  • BZ Choy

    I don’t care for XIII, but 98UMFE and 02UM? I’m hype.

  • Edu Alonso Carrasco

    2002UM Yo Kasumi’s time to shine again!

  • Yamazaky Geese

    Long Live Dream Cancel

  • La Lunatica

    Good ish, because SNK clearly wasn’t going to do it. This is the year of the league. KOF98 being included is the real news here.
