The Topanga League was one of Japan’s biggest esports draws of the Street Fighter IV era. Its format has been used across the board, including Europe’s Kakutop league and Korea’s Tukyeon League, ran by Spirit Zero.

Now, the Tenkaichi Budokai league in Japan is using this model to run a Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- league. Unlike many leagues that have had issues with foreigners watching live, such as using domestic streaming services that often have a paywall, this league will be streamed live on Twitch.

Featured in the league are famed Japanese Guilty Gear players Roi, Nage, FAB, Summit, Kazuki, Zaki, Haaken, and Karinchu in two separate groups. If you are a Guilty Gear fan, you owe it to yourself to tune in to http://www.twitch.tv/joniosan.
