Thousands of contestants from over 30 countries will battle it out for fame, glory and cash in Super Street Fighter IV, Super Street Fighter II HD Remix, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, http://tatsunoko.vscapcom.com/home.html, and a couple non-Capcom games...

Registration for the event is officially closed, but that doesn't mean you can't get a piece of the action. If you can make the trip to Las Vegas, admission to watch the event is free.
We'll also have the E3 build of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 available to play on PlayStation 3 for anyone who shows up! This will be the first time the game is playable for the general public.
Did I mention that Marvel vs. Capcom 3 just won http://www.gamecriticsawards.com/winners.html at E3?
If that wasn't enough, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 producer Ryota Niitsuma and Super Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono will both be on hand to greet the fans.
