STREET FIGHTER IV: AR­CADE EDI­TION

Gam­ing has al­ways been a com­pet­i­tive en­deavor, rooted in its ori­gins from the days of the good old ar­cade. Some of the most pop­u­lar ar­cade ti­tles were fight­ing games, and the spirit of those ti­tles is kept alive today by the Evo­lu­tion Cham­pi­onship Se­ries. This par­tic­u­lar e-sport event is the most com­pet­i­tive fight­ing game tour­na­ment around.

Evo 2013, the lat­est in­stall­ment of the se­ries, fea­tured nine dif­fer­ent games and par­tic­i­pants from 51 na­tions. A to­tal of 3500 com­peti­tors con­gre­gated to bat­tle it out for top hon­ors in front of a 6000 spec­ta­tor au­di­ence, and the event was view by thou­sands on­line.

In the Su­per Street Fighter 4: Ar­cade Edi­tion tour­na­ment, Sin­ga­porean pro-gamer Ho Kun Xian emerged vic­to­ri­ous af­ter three days of slug­ging through his com­pe­ti­tion. His win was made more im­pres­sive by the fact that his playable char­ac­ter, Gen, is not com­monly seen at the top ech­e­lon of Su­per Street Fighter 4 bat­tles.
