Street Fighter 6 is nearly here and we’ve already gotten a decent number of tournaments lined up for the new game. We’ve just learnt of another new competition to celebrate the Street Fighter 6 release date, Super Ultra Combo Week. This is going to be a new Twitch Rivals competition, hosted by Maximillian Dood. More than that though, it’s a whole week celebrating the latest Street Fighter release.
The Super Ultra Combo Week event is going to break down into a few different components. There’s an element of hosting streamers. Players catching the opening action on Street Fighter 6 have the chance to be featured on the main Twitch Channel. The big event though, is the $50K tournament itself. That’s taking place the next weekend after the launch of Street Fighter 6.
Street Fighter Twitch Rivals Tournament
Super Ultra Combo Week’s main event is a tournament, where there’s up to $50K up for grabs in a prize pool. The event is part of the larger Twitch Rivals series. However, it’s carrying a bit bigger of a prize pool than those events typically get.
The format is a bit different, since this one is focused on streamers. It’s a tournament being hosted by Maximilian_Dood. It isn’t a one-on-one face-off like normal though. Instead, it’s being played as a 5v5 Squad Battle tournament. There will be eight teams of five who fight as squads in a bracket. This is the element of Super Combo Week that carries the prize pool.
