While MOBAs might get all the headlines, the Philippines also has a healthy fighting game community. And fight fans will be happy to hear that for the first time ever, Red Bull is sending a Filipino fighter to Red Bull Kumite, a global showdown to find the Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition player in the world.
The fourth edition of the tournament will be held in Paris this year, and the road to France begins at Chaos Nightclub, City of Dreams Manila on September 29. Did we mention this all goes down inside a cage-match setting? Here's a video of last year's action featuring prod value like only Red Bull does:
We're only the eighth country to have our own qualifiers alongside Japan, The United Kingdom, Russia, Italy, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and Belgium so fight fans shouldn't pass up this chance! To sign up, head to their website and prepare your P250 reg fee and a valid passport—because you should be ready if you win the sole spot to the Last Chance Qualifier in France on November 10. That's 256 of the best SFV players on the planet competing for the final two slots alongside Red Bull's 14 invited fighters at Kumite's main event. Feel free to invite some friends to take your pics while you tangle with fellow World Warriors by the way, because spectator entrance is free.
