Hello again everyone and welcome to another Friday update!
The aim of these updates are to provide clarity on the going ons in the shop for you all. These past few weeks the team has been split between the reorganization of the entire shop and still fulfilling all of your orders. As of now things have mostly settled and we are nearly finished with the current window. We expect the remaining orders to ship out Monday of next week. After which, prep work for the following window (May 30th) will begin.
We look forward to seeing you all at CEO, we are still hammering out the details but we have plans to be in attendance!
The MICRO Lite is back! This option is ideal for those of you who play on PC as this option supports both PC and Nintendo Switch. It will also support all four SOCD modes (Default, 2nd input priority, SOCD off, and CAPCOM SOCD). You will be able to purchase the MICRO Lite sometime next week!
We will have an SOCD update for 1st gen MICROs out to you all by next week! Please keep an eye on our discord for the release
Locals Spotlight: Rochester, NY: A Gamers Nostalgia
This week we got to hear from AGN over in Rochester, New York! The biggest game in their scene right now is Smash, however they also mentioned, “ Regarding the FGC: our main games were NRS and Street Fighter but we have since evolved to GG Strive and Tekken being our highest draws. As well, we have a dedicated anime scene that is not large but consistent.” They’ve been running locals since 2014, nearly a decade!. We asked about their goals and were told, “ Regarding the FGC: our main games were NRS and Street Fighter but we have since evolved to GG Strive and Tekken being our highest draws. As well, we have a dedicated anime scene that is not large but consistent.” So if you’re someone in the area looking to find some great folk to game with, check them out! You can find more information in their Facebook group, or at these twitter handles @AGNostalgia1, @UpstateUproar, and @rit_fgc.
We also wanted to give AGN a chance to highlight anything they got coming up:
Upstate Uproar is our regional coming up on October 14-15.
