THQ Supporting YSB #14 in Sydney!

THQ have long been avid supporters of Australia’s fighting game community by way of prizes, software deals and exclusive previews of new releases at various events including OzHadou’s annual nationals tournament, OHN.

THQ Australia

For the forthcoming YSB #14, THQ have been very generous and are providing us with some pretty cool prizes for those entering.

– 5 copies of DARKSIDERS 2 (your choice of platform!)
– 5 DARKSIDERS 2 posters
– 1 DARKSIDERS 2 statue
– 1 copy of NINJA GAIDEN 3 COLLECTOR’S EDITION + Ninja Gaiden Training Sword

So what does all this mean? YSB #14 now has paid entry up for grabs for the forthcoming EB Expo tournament (details cited below this article) combined with THQ’s generous prize-pack being allocated among the various games being played (Street Fighter IV, Marvel 3 and Virtua Fighter) AND the accumulated cash prize pots from the past three events.

Lastly, we also have prizes from the folks at Madman Entertainment up for grabs to cover even more bases if the goodies above slip through your fingers. The Madman prize pack and indeed the organisation for all of these offerings couldn’t have been made possible without Daniel “Bezerk!” ¬†Chlebowczyk’s efforts in making all of this happen. Hats off to Daniel for amping the competitive stakes up for everybody!

Recall that this YSB is the finals for the ongoing Ranbat series we have been running for the past three events where those of you who have cut through to top eight in your respective games by way of accumulated points (top 4 for King Of Fighters) will battle it out for your final placings.

If you have any questions for the event, be sure to check out the forum thread with details here. Be sure to also give the folks at THQ props for giving YSB that extra dash of competitive spice via these prizes and here’s hoping we can work with them again in the future to keep things interesting!

We’ll be sharing these prizes between the top 8 places in the tournaments for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, as well as placing a large number of prizes into the OHNX prize raffle that will be drawn during the finals on Sunday the 19th of February.

We’re pleased to announce that THQ, the distributor of Capcom’s games in Australia, will be one of the sponsors for OHNX. THQ will be bringing along playable builds of Capcom’s next fighting game release, Street Fighter x Tekken.

SFxT will be available for casual play during OHNX, and we’ll also be holding a special exhibition for SFxT on Saturday evening. If you’d like to try SFxT ahead of its release on the 8th of March 2012, be sure to register for OHNX.
