You’ll probably want to call in sick for work the morning after Capcom brings the circus to Sydney.

The publisher is hosting a special Australian preview event on February 1 – the Super Ultimate Showcase – with a number of opportunities to go hands-on with first quarter releases titles and meet and greet star developers. VG247 will be there will bells on, but more excitingly, you can go too. Send your name and phone number to – tickets are limited, so please only register if you will be available on the evening of February 1, in Sydney, and are over 18.

Street Fighter x Tekken will be on the scene, lovingly chaperoned by Capcom USA’s Seth Killian, a figure so central to the franchise’s development that Street Fighter IV’s boss was named after him. Don’t ask him to play a round or two with you unless you’re wearing steel-plated trousers to protect your arse during its kicking. The Vita version of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 will also be playable, but he’ll kick your arse there, too.

Also making an appearance is Mike Jones, producer of Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City, the squad-based multiplayer shooter from Slant Six, and CyberConnect2’s Hiroshi Matsuyama and Kazuhiro Tsuchiya will both be in attendance, showcasing their baby, Asura’s Wrath. Capcom is also fronting a handful of classic arcade cabinets and even giving one away as part of ongoing festivities.

Sounds like a good night out, so be quick with that registration.
