INFILTRATION vs. POONGKO at Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Tournament in Korea (Grand Final)
Didn’t get enough action from EVO 2012? Worry not. There was a special Street Fighter 25th anniversary tournament held in Korea and, not surprisingly, the two world warriors in the Grand Final are two of Korea’s finest. INFILTRATION used his Akuma against Poongko’s Seth in what could possibly be one of the best Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition version 2012 sets in recent memory.
Yes, it was a shaky handheld cam and not a direct feed, but the quality of the fights was astounding. Too bad INFILTRATION couldn’t use his preferred Akuma outfit and colors.
In related news, Capcom is taking pre-orders for a limited edition chess set celebrating the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter. They’re limited production to just 5000 sets worldwide and each will be individually numbered with a Certificate of Authenticity.
