Ready, Set, Fight: Street Fighter V Midnight Launch
Capcom's Street Fighter V is now officially available in Malaysia, and that means gamers and fans will be able to head down to their nearest game stores to purchase the game for the PS4, or via Steam for PC users.
Some gamers, however, couldn't wait to get their hands on the game the minute the clock struck midnight, and that is why Gamer's Hideout and video game distributor, PLAY Interactive Sdn Bhd, along with the Multimedia Development Corporation (MdeC), decided to organize a special midnight launch party for the game.
The line was long, but the very second the countdown reached zero, customers who had made their pre-orders with Gamer's Hideout were elated and were (clearly) happy to get their copy of the game at zero hour.
The party saw more than 100 guests show up to the event, where many got a chance to learn take on each other in game via specially erected booth, all of which were set up on the side of the venue. Not only that, but visitors were also able to meet local video game studio and developer, Streamline Studios, who apparently had a hand in designing the artwork and artstyle of certain stages in the game.
Incidentally, the studio was also on the lookout for new designers to join their ranks. So, if you think you've got what it takes to join the ranks of a triple A game developer, then check out their site for more information.
There was also an on-site Street Fighter V tournament, where contestants stood the chance to win some money for just a few matches, with the champion of the tournament winning RM1,000.
