“Super Street Fighter Carnival 2017” marches on! SSFC2017 is the currently ongoing Japanese tournament series at Mikado Arcade for a wide variety of classic (and sometimes, obscure) arcade titles. If you missed the first few tournaments from SSFC2017, there’s a lot to catch up on!
Of all the times we’ve signal boosted Mikado’s excellent tournaments, Project Justice: Rival Schools 2 is consistently the most shared and favorably received games on our site. It’s the right combination of simplicity and nostalgia to really resonates within the FGC. There’s also a certain thrill of watching players battle with, and against, some of the hysterically strong stuff that’s developed over the years in this game’s meta — if you’ve complained about jabs in other games, oh man.
Perhaps most importantly, it’s been a very long time since Capcom took a crack at the 3D fighter genre, and it’s hard to ignore the clamoring for a new title in the series. Until that announcement day comes, though, we’ll have to wait patiently and just enjoy some high level tournament play from one of Japan’s finest arcades.
