Footage from the Recent Street Fighter Club event. As huge Capcom fans, Albotas is a bit upset that we didn’t get an invite. What’s up Capcom. No private jet for the ‘Botas. You used to be cool, man.

On February 3, 2011, the “Fight Club” series was reinvigorated for the launch of MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 3, attracting over 1,500+ fans waiting in line for upwards of 19 hours (starting at 1am), for the doors to open. It was the biggest, loudest, most successful “Fight Club” to date, with the line wrapping around an entire city block.

Performances for the evening included ambience from DJ R-Rated and a rockin’, fanboy-induced set by Miles Mosley and band, as well as surprise vocals by Mega Ran and Leeni.

Fans were also treated to the first public demo of the Nintendo 3DS in North America, showcasing “Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition”; and a carefully curated selection of retrofitted arcade boards and sticks in the “Classics Lounge,” serving as an interactive museum for every, single Marvel/Capcom collaboration leading up to “MVC3”.
