On August 25, 2013, the 14th season of VFR had two bay area cup events occurring simultaneously. In the west of Japan, the Kansai Bay Area Cup comes to a dramatic end with their 10th 3on3 event leading to the Climax Series. The Climax Series determines the overall champion of the Kansai Bay Area Cup. In the east of Japan, the 2013 Tokyo Bay Area Cup had its 7th event for the year. Below are links to the video archive of the events and the results (in the spoiler tag)!
Last weekend, August 10th-11th, was NYG8--a gathering for VF enthusiasts at New York City. These are the type of gatherings, before we had online matchmaking, that kept us hungry to play more and builds lasting camaraderie and rivalry. Below are the links to the videos from Saturday (the singles event) and results from both the singles and teams matches).
On August 3rd, 2013, VF players from around the world gathered at the Dugdale Centre in London to participate in SEGA Cup Europe organized by Unequalled Media. Check out the results, media from the event, and links to all the feedback and impressions from the event in this thread.
A tournament isn't considered newsworthy unless it has its own hype trailer. NYG8 just got BIG!
New York Gathering 8 will commence at Next Level Arcade in Brooklyn, NY on August 10 and 11th.
That's right, two full days of Virtua Fighter action! VF5:FS, VF2 and VF4: Final Tuned.
VF4:Final Tuned you ask? Considered by many as the best VF game in all of the series and wasn't even released on console. Yes, we will have a VF4:FT setup running on Naomi 2 hardware via Supergun playing on a projector.
