The new Tougeki? Sega's event to feature 5 national tournaments

It's revealed that Sega's arcade gaming event, called "Japan Gamer's Live," will feature 5 national tournaments of 5 arcade fighting games:
  • Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax (August 30)
  • Dead or Alive Ultimate: Arcade (August 31)
  • Guilty Gear Xrd (August 30)
  • BlazBlue Chronophantasma (August 30)
  • Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold (August 30)

It's basically DBFC and DOA5UA national tournament combined with Arc Revolution Cup 2014. More or less, it's a collaboration between Sega, Koei Tecmo, Arc System Works, and Atlus.

Japan Gamer's Live will be held at Tokyo Big Sight TFT Hall on August 30-31. It'll also feature other arcade games (non-fighting) and some free trial. Talk show and live performance are also planned.

In 2012, it was announced that Tougeki will be suspended indefinitely (though we can say that it's dead). If JGL continues like this and becomes a yearly event, it'll not simply replace Tougeki, it'll become a better Tougeki as JGL is backed directly by a group of game publishers that is capable.
