Americas bring a lot of people to the tournament, notably MenaRD, Caba and Punk who have been dominating the more regional competitions. Asia-Pacific is almost entirely Japan, with a lot of very hyped names finally making it to international tournaments in Street Fighter 6. Tokido has a lot to prove after a disappointing showing at Red Bull Kumite, Daigo and Kawano are playing their first international tournaments in SF6 and Kakeru is looking to maintain his domination (over everyone except for Big Bird's Marisa). EMEA is the region with the least number of players listed, but it should not be underestimated. Big Bird and AngryBird have been taking SF6 by storm, and Akainu keeps showing how much he needs to be feared. This is the first truly stacked tournament in Street Fighter 6.

The format is quite similar to the one spotted in other SF6 competitions but differs in a crucial way from SFV's Evo 2022. The top 8 is now the top 6, with the 2 bottom seeds directly facing the losers of the first upper-bracket matches. The upper bracket itself will be unchanged.
