Third Strike players, gather your friends as Cooperation Cup is back for 2018. Coming to the Asakusabashi Hulic Hall — the venue for Japan Cup 2017 — in Tokyo, this legendary event has the world’s best Third Strike players joining forces to beat each other in 5v5 team battles.
As with previous years, there will the preparatory Pre-Cooperation Cup tournament on January 6th, where players usually fight as same character teams before the main event on January 7th. Cooperation Cup 15 was spectacular, with Genki’s Alex winning the whole tournament for Team Z Senshi.
With Third Strike royalty like MOV, Onuki, Haitani, RX, K.O and Kokujin usually in attendance at Cooperation Cup, it’s mandatory viewing for any Street Fighter fan. Like last year, all the action will be streamed via the GameNewton Twitch channel — expect any news of an English stream nearer the time.
You can check out the announcement trailer below, which features an interview with Team Z Senshi team captain Kuni. If you’re interested in signing up, head over to the official Cooperation Cup website for more details.
