" Also seeing as it is Ryu's 50th birthday today, it only seemed right to officially announce a new tournament that I have been working on for quite some time now. This year marks the 10th anniversary of a moment in Street Fighter history that not only put our beloved game in more of a public eye, but brought us one of the most unforgettable moments in competitive fighting game tournament history. Most of you have seen the regular footage recorded : Evo Moment #37 And here's another video with player cam that isn't as popular : Evo Moment #37 pt. 2. So since this is a special event celebrating such a significant piece of FGC history, it would only be right to bring back the games that were played at this event. So far the roster is to include Street Fighter 2 Super Turbo, Capcom vs SNK 2, Marvel vs Capcom 2, and of course Street Fighter 3 3rd Strike, There are many factors still up in the air but the things that are set in stone currently include the attendance of both Daigo and Justin. The venue for this event has already been booked and is the exact same room that this feat was performed in and none of that "Ursa Major" hall, located on the premises of California State Polytechnic University located in Pomona, California. The event dates are also set for November 21-23 so start booking your rooms now. There are a ton of options and this is an event you won't want to miss. For you new school guys we are thinking about throwing in a Ultra Street Fighter 4 tourney on the side so some of you 09'ers have something to play "
