Registration Deadline for #SCR2017 + DISSIDIA Final Fantasy NT Showcase!

Have you registered for SoCal Regionals 2017? If not, you have until this Sunday to do so via the Internet – head over to smash.gg/socal-regionals-2017 to submit your registration!

SoCal Regionals 2017, or SCR 2017 for short, will occur at the Anaheim Convention Center in California throughout the weekend of September 22nd – 24th. That’s next weekend! The venue is also conveniently located next to some of the city’s biggest travel hotspots, including Anaheim’s Disneyland park! This means you’ll be able to enjoy the luxuries of California while also competing for glory in the world of fighting games!

However, more than glory – MUCH more – is on the line at SCR. Weeks ago, it was revealed that Netherrealm Studios and Warner Bros contributed a pot bonus of $10,000 to the event’s Injustice 2 bracket, despite the fact that SCR is not associated with the Injustice 2 Pro Series. So if diehard competitors were thinking of writing off the event due to this fact, they, and you, might want to rethink that choice!

Along with Injustice 2, a portion of the lineup has also received pot bonuses, including a $1,000 prize pool for Pokken Tournament DX. This contribution comes from EVO’s gift to the Pokken community as a gesture of good will towards the support they displayed for their game during the Player’s Choice donation drive, which was won by Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.

SoCal Regionals is proud to be associated with the Capcom Pro Tour and the Tekken World Tour as a ranking event. This means that any players competing in either Street Fighter V or Tekken 7 will have an opportunity to collect league points, provided that they place within satisfactory territory. We are not far off from the world finals for both circuits, so the course of SCR2017 will prove extremely crucial for those seeking to qualify.

The complete lineup for SoCal Regionals is listed below:

  • Street Fighter V
  • Tekken 7
  • Guilty Gear XRD Revelator 2
  • Blazblue: Central Fiction
  • Injustice 2
  • Killer Instinct
  • Under Night In-Birth EXE: Late[st]
  • Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite
  • The King of Fighters XIV
  • Pokken Tournament DX
  • Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo

Oh…and as it turns out, we’re getting a chance to enjoy another game in its testing stages, although not inside the ring. As of yesterday, Square Enix released an announcement disclosing details for a showcase of DISSIDIA Final Fantasy NT at SoCal Regionals!

Similar to Dragonball FighterZ, DISSIDIA Final Fantasy pits teams of three characters against one another in the many worlds of the Final Fantasy universe. Players can engage in up-close combat, summon powerful creatures such as Bahamut, or utilize team strategies to defeat their adversaries.

Anybody attending SCR will be allowed to engage in casual matches for DISSIDIA Final Fantasy NT at no additional cost to their entry fee. Additionally, teams that place in Top 2 for both next Friday and Saturday will be invited to take part in a special exhibition tournament atop the main stage! Prizes up for grabs include an Ultimate Collector’s Edition of the game, an exclusive t-shirt, and more!
