New details for VXG 2013 were announced today by the Vice President, Rolando Brison, who has guaranteed next year’s event will be bigger and better than their initial tournament expo debut. Payouts for the Top 16 qualifiers will all have an opportunity to go home with some hard, cold cash (note: 13 Grand respectively for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition V. 2012 and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3). Prize amounts have not been disclosed for the other featured titles scheduled.
Rolando passionately made the following statement this evening on Facebook before signing off for holiday cheer:
Well ladies and gentlement the first 5 fighting games for VxG. First the ones you know were coming:
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012 – Guaranteed Prize $13,600, top 16 payout
Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 – Guaranteed Prize $13,600, top 16 payout
Mortal Kombat 9: Prize TBA
Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Prize TBA
Now the other 2 games to make the cut right now:
King of Fighter 13 – We respect the fact that it turned out to be the most voted game in the poll. It was probably a mistake not to have the game at VxG 2012, but mistake has been corrected and it will be at VxG 2013!
Smash Brawl – It’s back, the smash game of 2012 will be back for VxG 2013! Melee still has some chance of making it in, Playstation all stars still has time to grow.
So what’s next? WE WILL RESERVE TO MORE SPOTS TO BE ANNOUNCED NEXT YEAR. This is where the communities of other games not listed here, such as SFxT, Dead or Alive 5, Persona IV Arena, Smash Melee and Playstation All Stars all have to show which game they want to see at VxG. Developers also have a small part to play. I must commend Team Ninja in this regard for being the first to show interest in having their game at VxG, and that gives some major point to seeing DOA at VxG 2013. But community is still the number 1 factor.
Also note that Injstice is going to be put in a wild card of it’s own. We will only announce the game pending an official release date. Currently no official release date has been given so JUST in case the game comes out too late, we won’t decide on its inclusion until the game is released.
Prizes will be announced later in 2013, but we wont let Marvel and SFIV outshine the other games too much in terms of prizes, we will do our best to keep it close in that range.
Thanks everyone for your interest and hype towards VxG 2013! Special thanks to Dominion Method Gaming, Ryan Gutierrez of Cross Counter and Isaiah TriForce Johnsonof EMP for the support given so far. As well as everyone else too numerous to mention, HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR! get ready, VxG is about to change the way you game! Play hard, PARTY HARDER!
