This year is the year of the Korean Dragon, at least when it comes to EVO. The biggest fighting game tournament in the world kicked off this weekend, culminating in a series of victories for the Koreans. Here are the victors of each event, sorted by country:
Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition Version 2012 – Infiltration
Street Fighter x Tekken – Infiltration & Laugh
King of Fighters XIII – Mad KOF
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 – Filipino Champ
Mortal Kombat – Perfect Legend
Soul Calibur V – Shining Decopon
Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown – Fuudo
Traditionally, the strategy gamespace has been the dominant battlefield for South Korea, so this year’s results were a bit of a shock to more than one person at EVO. I, for one, welcome our new Korean overlords and wish upon them much happy feelings, black-leather-clad dancers, and gourmet instant coffee.
