For fighters it's no different and this year is host to yet another entry in one of the world's most prestigious tournaments. Every year Japan hosts Super Battle Opera a tournament celebrating the newest and best fighting games!
The level of competition there is really high. One thing, unlike Evolution the United States large international tournament, SBO is not open to just anyone. You have to win a qualifier event to even be allowed to participate."
