The Street Fighter 25th Anniversary tournament is coming to Japan this fall.

Continuing the celebration for the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter, Capcom is bringing the series' commemorative tournament to Japan on September 29th, the company announced today.

Submissions for the Tokyo-based brawl are open today through August 20th. Qualifying rounds have a 128-player maximum and will be conducted online on September 29th, 30th, and October 6th. The top eight players from these preliminaries will compete in an offline tournament on October 20th, which will be streamed for pay-per-view on Japanese video sharing site Nico Nico.

Matches will be played in the PlayStation 3 version of Street Fighter x Tekken and the Xbox 360 versions of Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition (2012 version) and Street Fighter III 3rd Strike Online Edition. The player who wins two out of three matches for each round will advance to the next.

Preliminaries for the tournament's North American branch took place in late July in Austin, TX. Qualifying rounds in New York City will take place this weekend. The finals will take place in San Francisco on December 8th.
