Indonesia is not often talked about in the mainstream of the fighting game community, but this is starting to change. On October 1st through 2nd, Jakarta will be hosting Jakarta Game Fest, an Indonesia gaming and cosplay expo. While the tournaments at Jakarta Game Fest will also feature games such as The King of Fighters XIV and Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-, the real meat of this tournament lies in the Abuget Cup, a Street Fighter V event. This tournament will be one of the final Asia regional qualifiers on the Capcom Pro Tour, with the winner of Abuget Cup receiving a free ticket to the Asia regional finals in Seoul, South Korea.


As shown by the above flier, entry costs a $30 USD venue fee with a $20 tournament entry fee, as well as a $2,000 guaranteed pot. The tournament registration is open until September 21st in Indonesia, so if you are thinking about flying over to test your hand in Southeast Asia, register immediately at their website!
