Brooklyn, New York’s Next Level arcade is partnering with ESL Gaming to host a special Street Fighter V exhibition and side tournament on September 30. The event will serve as a prelude to The Brooklyn Beatdown, a $75,000 tournament being hosted by ESL Gaming at Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center on Oct. 1.
The Beatdown has attracted a number top SFV contenders to New York, including reigning Capcom Cup champion GGP|Kazunoko, NS|Ludovic, Wolfkrone, Twitch Ambassador Daigo Umehara, and more. But before they face off at the Barclays Center, they’’ll have a chance to show off their stuff at New York’s premier fighting game hub.
New Legacy will consist of six exhibition matches with a first to seven match between GGP|Kazunoko and F3|Alucard serving as the main event. Next Level will also run a side tournament for attendees to get a taste of the competition as well. Check out the scheduled list of matches:
