We've invited the VF legends, Fuudo and Chibita, from Japan to demonstrate the game and also take on 20 or so challengers. Amazingly, we had people fly in from Australia, Japan, Singapore, Canada and all over the US just to make it to this event and ... we had a blast!
We've put together a short video of our event. If anyone is interested in seeing what the VF community is like, you can watch the video here!
