Ryan Hart to attempt Street Fighter V Guinness World Record in Manchester.
Street Fighter V is only just hitting stores but somehow it’s already eligible for a Guinness World Record attempt.
If you are in Manchester tomorrow (16th February 2016) you might want to head down the Trafford Centre branch of GAME. Professional Street Fighter player, Ryan Hart, will be facing a stream of 250 opponents as he competes to defeat the most people any player has ever taken on in 12 hours.
Street Fighter series producer Yoshinori Ono, will also be in attendance, giving fans the opportunity to meet the man behind the latest release.
“I’m really excited to be competing for the Guinness World Record title. With the new battle system in Street Fighter V I’ve had to start from scratch, playing around with the characters and mastering their new moves so even the more casual player will be a challenge for me. This will definitely be an exciting day!”
The event is open for anyone to attend. And you are feeling particularly brave it’s not too late to register to be one of Hart’s opponents.
The event from 10am – 10pm at the Trafford Centre branch of GAME. Good luck.
