California Extreme 2016 Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting Tournament!

CAX 2016 SF2 poster

Poster says it all. You can’t make EVO this weekend? Don’t worry, neither can I! It’s a tradition that if I don’t make it to EVO, I send a couple of my Street Fighter II machines down to Santa Clara for the California Extreme arcade and pinball show, and throw a tournament. The game is Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting.

Just a quick note, you have to pay the CAX entrance fee to get near the tournament, which is $40 on Saturday and $60 for the weekend. I highly recommend coming out primarily to spend the day or weekend playing a ton of hard-to-find arcade and pinball games from several different decades, and entering the Street Fighter II tournament as a fun side thing. If you come out just for the Street Fighter II tournament, well … that’s an expensive as hell tournament.
