In the past two months since Evo there’s been a long string of Capcom Pro Tour events, but none with the premier event designation. That changes this weekend with the 2016 Japan Cup at Tokyo Game Show. While in previous Mad Catz hosted the TGS premier event, BEast of the East has stepped up to take over the responsibility. And with a direct Capcom Cup qualification spot on the line, the competition is absolutely fierce.

The bracket for Japan Cup is capped at 256, but that bracket is packed to the brim with top players from Japan, Asia, North America and Europe. Daigo Umehara, Yukadon, Haitani, Mago, Nemo, GO1, Eita, sako, MOV, Itabashi Zangief, Xian, Dakou, GamerBee, Fidoskin, Mister Crimson, Justin Wong, Ricki Ortiz, K-Brad, Julio Fuentes, alucarD and Chris Tatarian are just a small sample of names you’ll find in t he player list. Check here for the full player list and here for the Challonge brackets.

Japan Cup 2016 will be brought to live in both English and Japanese. For the English broadcast, head over to the CapcomFighters channel on Twitch. If you’re looking for Japanese, check out Kagecchi’s channel.
