“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!
Today’s game is the sports game adopted by the FGC, Windjammers (known as Flying Power Disc in Japan). Despite not being a fighting game, this insane thing had a chance at being at Evo earlier this year, and likely won’t go away anytime soon thanks to its recent PlayStation 4 port.
Mikado Arcade is down for any arcade classic, so perhaps it’s no surprise Windjammers made it in to SSFC2017’s lineup. But make no mistake, Windjammers is still a popular side game for the FGC anywhere in the world, with a tournament scene in France just celebrating its five year anniversary.
