Mortal Kombat and SoulCalibur V will be featured in MLG's first-ever Fighting Game Arena, taking place this Saturday from 2:00 - 9:45pm Eastern. The top eight players from the MLG Winter Championship will be competing for $3,400 in prizes for each game. The pools of players have just been revealed over on MLG's official website, so head on over and see if you recognize any of the competitors.
Streaming for plain ol' standard definition will be free, but if you want a definition higher, it'll cost you $4.99. There will be two streams for you to bounce between: the first will have gameplay and commentating by none other than Tom "great tournament, great experience" Brady, Juicebox Abel, and Bibulus. The second stream will be hosted by the ever-so-stylish Gootecks and is going to be focused on behind-the-scenes coverage and interviews.
