Saturday 16th September 2017 saw the running of the 15th annual OzHadou Nationals (OHN) fighting game tournament in Sydney, Australia. Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown was featured as a "medal game" and drew an impressive turnout by comparative standards. With all of Australia's heavy hitters present and accounted for, a healthy contingent of new challengers, a returning vet and a surprise International guest, OHN15 had all the ingredients for one exciting event!
Full brackets and results can be found at the official OHN15 Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown smash.gg event, and results have also been imported into our Victory Road league here on VFDC.
While there was a live stream recorded and archived, the VF community in Australia rallied together to ensure every match off-stream was recorded as well. Each video contains a timestamped index of matches, and when viewed on YouTube will appear as hyperlinks within the description. The full playlist is as follows.

About OzHadou Nationals
Australia's longest running fighting game tournament series over a weekend of the fiercest competition for all corners of the Fighting Game Community. OzHadou Nationals 15 took place on September 15th to 17th at the Hilton Sydney, located in the heart of Sydney's CBD. Last year saw over 600 attendees across over 15 different games and with a number of prolific titles on the way like Injustice 2 and Tekken 7, it was even bigger and better this year.
