Shadowloo Showdown 2011

Back for their second year the guys over at Shadowloo are set to host another epic fighting game tournament in Melbourne on June 25th at the CQ Hotel.

If you’re wondering just how epic this may be, well it’s damn epic enough to bring several of the world’s top Super Street Fighter IV players all the way down to Australia to compete against each other and our countries best as well as giving less skilled players such as myself a chance to size up against the godlike tier.

It’s not all just Street Fighter though, expect to see tournaments for Marvel vs. CAPCOM 3, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift and even Mortal Kombat 9. Basically if fighting games are your thing at all this is something you won’t want to miss.

Check out the latest trailer above and keep an eye on their siteĀ Shadowloo for all the updates and pre-registration which will be opening in a few weeks. There’s also an interview with Ali from Shadowloo over atĀ Australian Gamer.

Finally, here’s some footage from last year’s singles final between Gamerbee and Tokido.
