Looks like I may have spoke too soon about there not being much going on this weekend… If you’re a Street Fighter V or Mortal Kombat XL player then you have a chance to play for $65,000 in prizes tomorrow at Scotiabank Theatre in West Edmonton Mall. Online registration is closed now but you might still be able to get in on it at the door and spectators are welcome (you might get a free gift for just showing up).
Northern Fights, the next exciting event in the Cineplex® WorldGaming™ Canadian Championship Series Presented by PS4™, gives players from across North America the opportunity to battle head-to-head in either Street Fighter V or Mortal Kombat XL. Tickets for spectators are FREE to attend and can be obtained only at participating theatre box offices. The first 30 attendees will receive a free, custom-made, Northern Fights gift! Over $75,000 in total cash and prizes, including a trip to Toronto for all Regional winners and a trip to Evo 2017 for each Grand Prize winner will be awarded. Players may qualify for the National Finals in Toronto through live Regional Qualifiers held in-theatre at select Cineplex locations across Canada, or during the limited Online Last-Chance Qualifier series of tournaments.
