Namco’s hosting a livestream of its GamesAid-backed Fight Club later tonight. Fighting massive will definitely want to get watching.
Most, if not all, of the games industry in the UK is at Namco Station in London tonight to get their fight on, but all for a good cause in raising money for UK games charity GamesAid. So far, money raised pre-event has been £6,000.

Street Fighter x Tekken, Soul Calibur V, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and various other Capcom and Namco fighters will be playable at the event, which is open tonight to the industry only.
There will be a publicly-open event, however, at the same venue tomorrow in two sessions: 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm.
Producers for Street Fighter and Tekken respectively, Yoshi Ono and Katsuhiro Harada, will also be at Namco Station tonight, where we’re due to interview them at some point in the evening.
The pair will also be at the public shindig tomorrow for signing sessions. More details on tomorrow can be found here.
VG247’s taking part in the official 16 man tournament with our first match against Destructoid. But we also have a friendly that will decide a score we’ve had going all year. As Neo said in The Matrix Revelations, “it ends tonight.”
Myself, Stace Harman and Alex Donaldson are there for VG247. Be sure to watch for us if you see us!
