Capcom is officially summoning all World Warriors and Street Fighter V: Champion Edition pros for Capcom Pro Tour 2021. The event will notably be a continuation of the previous year’s format, due to ongoing global travel restrictions and social distancing precautions.
CPT 2021 will consist of 32 online regional premiers set across 19 different territories, in which participants compete for a prize pool of over US$200,000. Winners of these online events will automatically qualify for Capcom Cup 2022 early next year. Additionally, the top four finalists of each premier will split a prize pool of US$5,000.
With its nearly complete schedule already available for viewing as well, CPT 2021 promises tons of exclusive DLC, including themed costumes and a magnificent new stage called the Ring of Galaxy Stage. Purchasing a CPT 2021 Premier Pass (worth US$19.99) will get you all of the updated content, while the new costumes and stage may also be bought individually.
CPT 2021’s opening event will be the first of four online premiers hosted for Japanese players; registration for this opens on March 29. The tournament itself will run from April 17 to 18. Fans can catch the action through the Capcom Fighters Twitch and YouTube channels.
