We’re proud to announce that Autumn Games will be sponsoring an official Skullgirls side-tournament at Evo 2012 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, NV!
Here are all the relevant details:
- The tournament will take place on July 6th and 7th, starting at 3:00 PM
- Registration is open from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on July 6th
- $5 entry fee
- Type of tournament: Singles, double elimination, each match is best 2/3 sets
- Top 8 will be Saturday, unless we’re running late, at which point it will be Top 16
- Autumn Games will be kickstarting the prize pool with $1000
- The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive custom FoeHammer dual-system fight sticks
Unfortunately, the FoeHammer custom sticks won’t be ready in time for the tournament, so they will be mailed to the winners afterwards.
We’re going all-out on these, and here’s a sneak peek at the art for them…
See what we did there? The winners of the Evo 2012 tournament are the bossest Skullgirls players out there, we figured a trio of boss-themed sticks was only appropriate!
In addition to the tournament, the patched version of the game will be playable as well! And for those of you who can’t make it, you can look forward to us sharing the tournament replays online!
Also, our friends at BrokenTier will be selling two limited-edition Skullgirls shirts!
There will only be 100 of each design, so be sure to pick one up!
We can’t wait to see you there!
