Touhsinsai 2017 is not only the biggest anime fighting game event in Japan, it’s also host to the Arc Revolution Cup, the conclusion to the international circuit dedicated to games by Arc System Works. The event features both team-based and one-on-one tournaments.

The lineup for Toushinsai includes Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Persona 4: Arena Ultimax, Under Night In-Birth EXE Late[st], Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, The King of Fighters XIV, and Pokken Tournament. There were several more games featured at the event, but due to those tournaments not being streamed, nor having accessible online brackets, we cannot provide results for them. All tournaments, however, are single-elimination, because the Japanese FGC is really hardcore.

Streaming for the event was handled by Toushinsai Official TV for Japanese commentary and Anime Illuminati for English. As usual, players will be listed in “[sponsor/team name] | [player name]” format, with their used characters in brackets.

Matthew Fetrow

I've been playing video games since 4 years of age, and finally began to deeply invest myself into the world of fighting games in 2015 after many off-and-on encounters with games inside the genre. I have a preference for 3D fighters, but also enjoy Street Fighter, King of Fighters, and some airdashers. I'm also a big fan of RPGs and shmups.
