Latin America has become recently well known for its high-caliber Street Fighter players, and all eyes are now on the region — the home of Capcom Cup champion MenaRD — to see the direction they’ll take in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.

We won’t have to wait too long, as Brazil’s Liga Brasileira in Rio de Janeiro will be hosting the region’s first Arcade Edition event on January 20th. Featured at the event will be DidimoKOF — who went on a tear at Capcom Cup — as well as many others from the region, including Stunner, Paoloweb, and Baby Brasil — a strong F.A.N.G who has twice eliminated Keoma from CPT events. The stream will run on the Promo Arena channel on Twitch at 7:00 AM PT on January 20th.
