“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 tournaments may both be 3D fighters, but they couldn’t be further apart in terms of mechanics: Sega’s Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, and SNK’s Buriki One.

If the Virtua Fighter series helped define the 3D fighting genre standards, then Buriki One is a complete rejection of them. Buttons are used for movement, the joystick is used to execute attacks, and ring outs simply return you back to the center of the ring. Also, yes, that’s Art of Fighting‘s Ryo Sakazaki you see guest starring in the roster!

Enjoying SSFC2017? You can follow the action by subscribing to Mikado’s official YouTube channel, or you can even try to catch Mikado Arcade when they livestream.

Hey, I'm just a 3D-head in a 2D-world. I like pretty much all FGC stuff, and I really like hearing about the way people think about games.
