Who will stand triumphant atop the Tower of Pride?

Red Bull isn’t slowing down any time soon when is comes to hosting Street Fighter V events; roughly a month after this weekend’s Red Bull Proving Grounds Fall Finals in Chicago and Red Bull: The Pit in Cologne, Red Bull Esports has another big event planned to take place in Shinagawa-ku, Minami-Oi, Tokyo: the Tower of Pride.

“The only thing we put on the line is our pride.” This Street Fighter V tournament will require competitors to collect as many coins as possible, to challenge the eight “Gatekeepers” for a chance to enter the final stage of the tournament. The eight Gatekeepers are:

  • Red Bull|Bonchan
  • Hx.Twitch.CYG BST|Daigo Umehara
  • Alienware|Nemo
  • Echo Fox|Tokido
  • GGP|Kazunoko
  • Qanba|Xiao Hai
  • DNG|Tachikawa
  • NASR|Big Bird
