The top eight ranked Capcom Pro Tour players in the Asian Region met at the SEA Major in Singapore to determine which one of them would secure a guaranteed invite to the Capcom Cup.
With the caliber of talent on hand, Street Fighter V fans were treated to the best and most intense level of competition. Here are all the highlights from the CPT Asia Regional Finals.
Nemo vs Oil King (Winners round 1)
Naoki “Nemo” Nemoto has clearly done his research on Li-Wei “Oil King” Lin, and knew that he likes to stay airborne, so he was always ready with anti-air options that led to heavy damage.
Fujimura vs Machabo (Winners round 1
Fujimura “Fujimura” Atsushi was able to clutch out two important rounds against Masahiro “Machabo” Tominaga with instant overhead Kunai attacks.
Bonchan vs Xian (Winners round 1)
Whenever Masato “Bonchan” Takahashi and Kun Xian “Xian” Ho face each other, you’re always guaranteed some insane highlights.
This matchup was no different as they traded comeback wins and insane clutch plays.
Tokido vs Xian (Losers round 1)
Xian was able to fight back against Tokido and almost pulled off an insane reverse-perfect, but Hajime “Tokido” Taniguchi managed to activate his V-Trigger, forcing Xian to jump in order to avoid two air Fireballs, leading to Tokido catching Xian with the dragon punch.
Fuudo vs Bonchan (Winners semifinals)
Keita “Fuudo” Ai picked up where he left off the previous day, putting in a fantastic game against Bonchan. Fuudo made excellent use of Birdie’s ex-Dolphin Dive against Bonchan’s slow-moving Sagat.
Fujimura vs Nemo (Winners semifinals)
No life-lead is safe against Fujimura. He was able to pull off two insane comeback wins while preventing Nemo from making his own comeback.
Tokido vs Nemo (Losers quarterfinals)
With both players low on health, they desperately tried everything they could, leading to the craziest scramble at the tournament.
Fujimura vs Fuudo (Winners final)
Fujimura scored another incredible comeback victory against SEA Major champion, Fuudo.
Fuudo vs Tokido (Losers final)
One wrong Dragon Punch cost Tokido more than half of his health bar against Fuudo. But, Tokido remained unphased and was able to clutch out the match with a Raging Demon finish.
