Apart from the fourteen participants listed above, two additional players decided by a last-chance qualifier will be thrown into the mix. Some of the competitors scheduled to take part include CG.RZR|Problem X, EsseX the Sinner, BX3|Veggey, Andreas, RB|Kayane, CDV|Will2Pac, CDV|Cuongster, LLL|Emersion, and many more.

While the invitational is obviously the main event, Red Bull Kumite will also include two special exhibitions to break up the action. First, Capcom’s classic Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike will enter the spotlight as a team of French competitors take on another group led by legends Nuki and Kokujin. Then, later on, six of the best qualifier participants will be matched up against six Kumite entrants in a special Ultra Street Fighter IV concept match.

Those who aren’t able to attend this event in person will be able to view it all live by way of the official website or Capcom Fighters. The full schedule has been included below along with adjusted times for other parts of the world.

France vs. Japan Exhibition

  • Kevin Giguere

    Why is the french commentary coming out clearer in the english stream than the french stream? Also, this is one of my favorite visual setups, where you can see both players, names, countries, the match they’re at, without being too intrusive. Great job on the visuals, bad job on the audio.

  • Best tourney music.

  • infiltration makes Decapre look cool. very
    those seats look more comfortable than a lot of other seats at events

  • Sebron_24

    Awesome

  • Mash Harder

    What was the payout?

  • Mormegil

    Bonchan forever a bridesmaid no more! Congrats to him! He played like a god today.

    Bonchan’s defense near the end was too solid. Good on him for finally taking a tournament.
