The tournament will take place today (February 13) in Atlanta from 4 p.m.-5 p.m. at several of the retail stores but only the store in Union City will feature an appearance from Fat Joe, who is a featured character in the game. Kudo Tsunoda, the game's producer, will also be on hand at the store to witness the tournament first hand. The tournament will give players the opportunity to have a shot at trying their hand at the game before it's scheduled release date in March.
The game is being billed as one of the most realistic hip-hop/fighting games and boasts in-game features such as the ability to sign artists, build a record label and have the game's built-in soundtrack control the fighting tempo. Players will also be able to upload their own music to the game via their iPods.
