We are VERY pleased to finally take the curtain back and present to everyone, the Mad Catz / Canada Cup 2012 VS Edition Arcade Stick.
These controllers are in very short supply. with only a handful existing. Of those we are proud to announce that 5 are going to the winning team of this year’s International 5 on 5. So, in addition to the Team winning their portion of the $5000 prize pool and earning international bragging rights they will have this beauty to hoist high above their heads as well!
This year Canada Cup is blowing past any previous prize pots offered in Canadian Fighting Game history.
Canada Cup 2012 is proud to announce that we will be providing over $15,000 in cash and prizes at this year’s event.
