Like last year, this year’s Canada Cup, the biggest fighting games tournament in the country, is taking place in Toronto. And the prize pots are huge.
Street Fighter V players have the most on the line, with a $15,000 prize pot and a guaranteed berth in this year’s Capcom Cup.
But they aren’t the only ones able to win some cash: Smash Bros. Wii U has a prize pot of $1500, Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator has a pot of $500, as does Street Fighter II.
The Canada Cup is also crowdfunding a Super Smash Bros. Melee pot–currently around $1600–with Mew2King themed rewards including a chance at grabbing one of his tees, him using your 4-character handle on stream, and coaching by the legend himself. It’s an interesting way to raise a pot.
Events are already underway and continue through the weekend. You can find the streaming schedule here.
