No, I don’t mean Singapore’s Real Deal, the legendary Street Fighter II HD Remix player who took first place away from American SF champ Justin Wong at Canada Cup last year (although Real Deal will likely be there as well, so bring your autograph markers).
I’m talking Daigo Umehara – quite possibly the biggest name in competitive Street Fighter – who will be visiting Singapore this weekend for the Road to EVO South East Asia Major 2012, to be held on June 9 and 10 at the Clementi Community Club. If you’re a true fighting game fan, you know you have to make plans to come down. Amazing game moments are bound to happen.
But first, watch 8-bit Daigo be a beast in this amazing trailer for the Road to EVO SEA Major, taking out Cross Counter Asia‘s Zhi and Xian with two Ultra Combos in a row. Then you can start making plans to come meet the real deal this weekend.
If you’re going to be there, you might as well sign up to play in some of the tournaments at the event itself (pre-register through this link).
A total of six games will be played in the tournaments:
1. Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition
2. FIFA 2012
3. Marvel vs Capcom 3
4. King of Fighters XIII
5. Street Fighters X Tekken
6. Soul Calibur V
There will also be free-play stations for Gran Turismo 5 (PS3) and Xbox 360 Kinect titles.
