We’re looking to build a fighting game scene in the Valley. Ever since Family Fun Arcade in Granada Hills closed in 2012, the Valley FGC scattered. We’re already hosting Skullgirls casuals/tournaments every Friday night, and have met recently hosted the Air Dashers (Guilty Gear Xrd –Revelator-, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R, Vampire Savior: Darkstalkers 3, Skullgirls, CVS2, and etc.).
We would like to reach out to the Street Fighter and Marvel communities, as Street Fighter V is still very new, and Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is coming out later this year. We’re confident we can be the next hang-out spot in the Valley!
We already have 6 PS4 set ups, 4 PS4 Mad Catz TE2+ Arcade Fightsticks, stream station with 2 mics, and a room in the store dedicated toward FGC event. For non-event days, we will have two PS4s set up with 4 PS4 Mad Catz TE2+ Arcade Fightsticks, ready for use (excluding days where the store is hosting special events). Our store features 3,000 sq. ft. with air conditioning and plenty of parking in the rear. With your support, we aim to go even bigger and even hold a major!

We would also like to assure the community that we are looking to improve future events! Here are the following adjustments we have planned for the next tournament:
Additional chairs will be provided for spectators
Our USF4 equipped PS4s will now support SFV as well. Once the USF4 bouts conclude, these consoles will be shifted to the other tournament for a more expedient conclusion
Tournament start time will be locked in at 8pm, so competitors with morning obligations are not kept unnecessarily late. A few “byes” will be kept in the bracket for late registration, but please contact us if you expect to be late so we can add your gamer handle to the bracket.
Smoking will be permitted in the courtyard, but all smoking MUST be kept away from the doors. A bucket will be provided for cigarette butts, so please take care not to litter our courtyard. As a reminder, smoking in public is illegal in Burbank.
On tournament days, systems will be set up by 6:30 pm for participants to play and practice.
We will also be working toward provided the following. Please note, they may not be available at the next event, but may be in the near future.
We are looking into provided cameras and headphones for the commentators, as well as headphones for the players at the streaming station.
An announcement system for brackets. We do currently have such a system in place, but at this time it is undergoing repair.
We eventually plan to provide 2 PS4s set up with SFV and USF4 during non-event hours. Players will be able to rent time on these systems to hone their skills. Mad Catz TE2+ fight sticks will be available for an additional fee.
We’re trying to go eSports! With the community’s support, we hope to build these events up and eventually host major tournaments. Join us!
