Coverage of Hadouken event in Dubai Technical College
The first inter-college fighting game event.
The Hadouken Fighting Game Tournament was held in the Academic City in Dubai between 10 and 12 January, and it is considered the first inter-college fighting game event. The event saw a decent turnout of students, where some were participating in the torunaments and some spent time casually playing and sparring in games like SSF IV: Arcade Edition, Mortal Kombat, Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 and Mario Kart Wii. Apparently games and technology go hand in hand, since the event also saw a display and sale of smartphone accessories.
The star of the show was a preview of Namco Bandai’s upcoming fighting game, Soulcalibur V, which will be released on PS3 and Xbox 360 in Febraury. The preview was obtained thanks to GamePlay Entertainment.
