Fighting game communities in both Melbourne and Sydney will be hosting regular events, featuring a variety of titles and tournaments to appeal to a broad range of players.
In June, Melbourne's Couchwarriors and Sydney's OzHadou will be hosting events that will feature the launch of Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. To celebrate the release of the game, Sega will be giving away codes to download VF5FS for both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.
There are two ways to win the codes: via Twitter or participating in a tournament, with codes available to each group. The game will be released on June 6.
In addition, there will be prizes given away for tournament participation. A winner will also be picked from the Couchwarriors stream during the Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown tournament on June 9.
The Couchwarriors Fighters Festival kicks off on June 9, and OzHadou's York Street Battles commences on June 16.
