Two fighting game streaming giants, iPlayWinner and Level | Up Series, are teaming up to help raise money for Japan the only way they know how: by kicking ass
. Simultaneous tournaments in Union City and Irvine, California will be streamed online as one massive show. Fight for Relief
will feature giveaways, interviews and competition in Super Street Fighter IV
and Marvel vs Capcom 3
from some of the best in the scene, including EG Justin Wong, Alex Valle, John Choi and others.
The fundraiser kicks off this Sunday, April 3, with all tournament proceeds and donations being given to Japan through GlobalGiving.org
, a site that facilitates the actual giving of the money. We imagine flying to Japan with a giant briefcase stuffed full of cash just isn't the most practical way to do it.
If you want to sign up for either tournament, there isn't any pre-registration; just show up to either the NorCal venue
or the SoCal venue
with some cash and your fight stick and throw down!
