The next major tournament in the GCC region will be the GCC Majors 2016 tournament to be held in Bahrain on the weekend of December 23-24th. GCC Majors come from the same organizers who started KOF GCC a couple of years ago. KOF GCC started out as a small gathering for regional King Of Fighters fans to get together and play The King Of Fighters XIII, but soon it started adding other games to subsequent events, ending with the final KOF GCC tournament held in Dubai last December, which grew to be a full fledged tournament with Ultra Street Fighter 4, King Of Fighters XIII, Super Smash Bros For Wii U, and Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, and Street Fighter III 3rd Strike, in addition to side tournaments of Dead Or Alive 5 Last Round, and Tekken Tag Tournament 2. And this year, to better reflect the scope of the event, the name has been changed to "GCC Majors". Check out the newly released trailer below:

Yours truly will be attending GCCMajors to cover the event and try to compete in the KOFXIV and Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator tournaments. I'll also be hosting a SEGA Saturn side tournament that I'll be streaming on my twitch channel. Should be a fun weekend indeed.
