Starting today around 4pm PST, The KOF Challenge international tournament will be taking place in Tijuana. The best players from Mexico and France (such as Huevo, Kula, Koopa, Fox, and Frionel) are confirmed to be in attendance. Also making an appearance will be none other than last year’s second place EVO finisher, BALA! This tournament is being held in Mexico right before EVO in order to showcase some of the top notch talent of players in Mexico who are not able to travel to Las Vegas next week.
