The highly-anticipated exhibition match between musician Lupe Fiasco and Mad Catz’ Daigo Umehara is a go, and will take place at a newly-announced Street Fighter V launch event in San Francisco, California. Thank you, Honzo Gonzo.
Folsom Street Foundry, home to Northern California’s weekly Churning the Butter tournament series, will be opening their doors to fighting game fans looking to celebrate Street Fighter V’s arrival in style. In addition to the rapper vs. legend exhibition, they will also be hosting a variety of undercard exhibitions in the upcoming title.
Doors are scheduled to open at 5 PM, but VIP access will be limited to the first 50 people in line. The aforementioned show matches begin at 6 PM, with general admission opening at 9 PM. If you aren’t able to get in, all of the festivities will be broadcast live on Twitch.
But the night doesn’t end there. The GameStop location on Market Street is set to hold their very own launch event, where Lupe and Daigo will be in attendance to help pass out Street Fighter V to eager fans looking to score an early copy. It’s sure to be a crazy evening, so check out the full details here.
Street Fighter V launches for PlayStation 4 and PC on February 16.
