The BlazBlue Revolution prize is still "to be announced," but if the U.S. wins it will definitely get that special bonus prize -- emphasis on if. With all this hype to get a U.S. team to a Japanese tournament for a Japanese game, we think this may be a clever ploy to show us yanks just how terrible we truly are at motherland fighting games. We try, Japan. We try. If you're brave enough to compete (or if you want a free trip to Japan), read the details below and check the BlazBlue Revolution site on Dec. 17 for more information.
Travel to Japan to compete against the most skilled BlazBlue players in the world!
