The NYU Game Center is proud to announce Spring Fighter 2017, our annual fighting game tournament will be happening this April 8th in Brooklyn. This year our friend Seth Killian be continuing his series of interviews with legendary Street Fighter players and sitting down with NYC’s hometown hero, ‘Long Island’ Joe Ciaramelli. A popular player and streamer, LI Joe has been a familiar face in the New York fighting game scene for more than a decade.

This year we’ll be hosting tournaments in:

  • Street Fighter V
  • King of Fighters 14
  • Guilty Gear Xrd Rev.


Each game will have a variety of prizes but this year the winner of the Street Fighter tournament will have their flight to the Evolution Tournament covered by the NYU Game Center!

Each year the NYU Game Center invites a veteran of the fighting game community to share their thoughts about their career in fighting games, the scene, and life in general, with Seth Killian. In the past we’ve hosted such greats as Daigo Umehara, Alex Valle, and Ricki Ortiz, and this year we’ve invited another storied player, LI Joe. The interview will take place right before the Top 8 in Street Fighter V.
