[FRANCE] World Game Cup 2K6 Full Details


The French Fighting Game Federation presents


February 15th-19th ? Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France

A little bit of history:

Over the past six years, versus fighting games have been speading in France thanks to leagues such as Console League and companies such as Games-Fed (which set up the PC French World Cyber Games). In 2003, coming from Paris, DTN won at Soulcalibur 2 during the Evolution in Los Angeles, thereby demonstrating the potential and credibility of French players on the world stage. Europe had to implement its own international competition, matching such events as the Evolution in the United States or the Tougeki in Japan and it all started with Soulcalibur 2 and the first World Game Cup in 2004. This tournament, which was hosted by Games-Fed in the prestigious Palais des Festivals in Cannes, attracted the best foreign players to meet the challenged proposed by the French team. In the end, the Americans got their revenge, winning the tournament and the 3000? in cash, by beating the French in a thrilling final match.
Two years later, the FFJC (French versus fighting video game federation), Games-Fed, R2J, Tougeki France and Console League are gathered to organize the ultimate versus fighting event?
The World Game Cup key figures:

· 2000m²
· Over 50 tournaments during 5 days
· More than a thousand competitive players expected from all over the globe (including Japan and the US).
