Final Round XVI results

The most hyped up event in the history fighting game festivities in Atlanta has another year under its belt. Check out the results from Final Round XVI inside.

Sixteen Final Round events are history.

This past weekend (March 29 - 31) Final Round XVI took place in Atlanta, GA. The tournament event featured most Evo 2013 main stage games such as Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012 (AE 2012), King of Fighters XIII (KoF XIII), Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT2), and many more.

Whenever there's a major event the magnitude of Final Round, you can always count on some heavy hitters to enter the fray. That's exactly what happened as Chris G, Dieminion, Xian, Sanford Kelly, Justin Wong, Infiltration, Ricky Ortiz, NYC Fab, and a slew of other renowned players participated.
