About Tounshinsai 2016
Toushinsai (闘神祭) is a multi-day, multi-game tournament being held October 16-17 in Tokyo, Japan. All games will be played on arcade hardware, meaning pad players will have to adapt to/learn how to use a stick if they wish to participate in the tournament.

Representative Selection
We will be sending 2 players to Toushinsai to represent America! The players will be chosen as follows:
1) The highest-placing US resident in the Official EVO Guilty Gear Tournament.
2) The winner of the qualifying tournament being held at the Aksys Booth at EVO.
