Last year Capcom’s Street Fighter V made history by giving away $230,000 to their first place champion at Capcom Cup 2016!  They want to make this a tradition, and so the 2017 Capcom Pro Tour will bring exclusive content to its players sponsored by Sony’s PlayStation 4.  The tour will kick off with Capcom Pro Tour costumes for Ken and Ryu in Street Fighter V, which can be purchased individual for $5.99.  After the competition has ended, the champion of this year’s Capcom Cup will decide who will receive the final costume which can also be purchased for $5.99.  The new stage, which is a little more expensive at $9.99, will also be revealed after the competition has concluded.

Along with the individual items, there will be prizes exclusive to the Capcom Pro Tour 2017 Premier Pass for Street Fighter V priced at $24.99.  The bundle will include the previously mentioned costumes and stage, 2 titles, and monthly in-game targets will reward Fight Money starting in June.  Within that bundle all the characters, PS4 only, will have the option to access the Capcom Pro Tour blue option for their costumes as well.

According to Capcom, 30% of the sales from DLC purchases will go to the Capcom Cup 2017 prize pool. Officially 50% of the revenue is for Capcom Pro Tour production, while the other 20% will most likely be split between Capcom and Sony.  The Street Fighter V DLC will be available until November, right before the Capcom Pro Tour starts.

About me: Christine "smollbirb" Marten is a recent college grad that has been playing video games since she was gifted with her first NES console in 1999. Known as LuxAterna on Steam, she started as a games journalist in 2012 and has been writing about games and the industry since. In college, she acted as the president/clubmother for the gaming club, and hosted her own gaming radio show called SoundWave Games. When she is not gaming she can be seen cosplaying at conventions, working with non-profits that fundraise through video games (like Extra Life and Child's Play), acting as community manager for The Senpai Project, playing League of Legends with friends, or serenading passerbyers with her violin skills on the streets of NYC. She will literally play anything that is thrown at her (but please don't throw to hard she is smoll). She enjoys indie games and horror games especially, and her favorite series of all times is Kingdom Hearts. Her third love, after video games and violin, is puns. Although it is a dangerous life she makes them whenever she hears the opportunity to do so. Christine hopes to bring her own spin on storytelling to the GAW community as she continues to seek out whatever the world has to offer!
