Looming over the horizon is the 2016 Capcom Cup, the long-awaited grand finale of the Street Fighter V circuit that will offer $250,000 to the greatest players that the Street Fighter scene has to offer. The cheers of fans will create a dull roar that will nearly deafen those around them.The title of champion will be fought over as Ryota “Kazunoko” Inoue fends off those who wish to pry it from his cold, defeated hands.

Before that, however, there are just as important battles to be won.

Capcom recently added the two more regional files to the busy schedule that will make the final weeks leading up to the Capcom Cup busy ones.

The first added to the schedule was the Capcom Pro Tour Asia Regional Finals, which is slated for November 17th-19th in South Korea. The first day will be dedicated to those who have not yet qualified, where up to 256 players will battle it out at the Anyang Creative Economy Convergence Center 9F. Those who take first and second place will advance to the Regional Final on the 19th which will be held at the Busan Exhibition and Convention Center. Daigo “TheBeast” Umehara and Kazunoko will be among the competitors who have already qualified for the event.

Second came the Capcom Pro Tour Latin America Finals, which will take place in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on October 29th – November 2nd. Significantly less information was provided for the Finals, but we do know that Evil Geniuses’ Justin “Jwong” Wong will be competing, as well as Kenneth “K-Brad” Bradley. It will also take place during the same weekend as the Canada Cup in Toronto.
