Capcom announces three nostalgic Street Fighter 30th Anniversary tournaments for this year

SSFII Turbo, Alpha 3, and Third Strike

Capcom is using Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection as an excuse to get a bunch of people together this year to compete in older titles in the series and I am so down to watch that unfold.

Three individual tournaments are planned — one for Super Street Fighter II Turbo, one for Street Fighter Alpha 3, and one for Street Fighter III: Third Strike. All three will have their own $7,000 prize pool up for grabs, and they’re fairly spread out, schedule-wise. The first event is happening in late June.
