After a successful first event last year, the organizers behind Kumite In Tennessee and Panda X Gaming have teamed up once again to bring “the LARGEST gaming event in Arkansas,” back to Little Rock. Mid-South Championships will be held September 9-10, returning to the Holiday Inn Conference Center, conveniently located near the Clinton National Airport, in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The event’s Featured games include:
- Street Fighter V ($1,000 pot bonus)
- Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
- Guilty Gear Xrd REV2
- BlazBlue: Central Fiction
- Super Smash Bros. for Wii U [singles & doubles] ($500 pot bonus for singles)
- Super Smash Bros. Melee [singles & doubles] ($500 pot bonus for singles)
- Project M
- Tekken 7
- The King of Fighters XIV
- Injustice 2
- Killer Instinct
Registration is currently live at smash.gg. From now until May 8th, the organizers are offering a limited-time $15 venue fee, as a response to concerns of last year’s high registration cost. Afterwards, the price will increase to the early-bird price of $20, which will further increase to $30 on August 1st. On-site registration will set you back $40, so competitors should act quickly for the discount. Just like last year, the hotel room rate will be $89 per night, with a booking link forthcoming.
[CORRECTION: The $15 fee will be available until May 8, not until May 10th as originally reported.]
