Who would have seen this coming!? This is totally out of left field =P. Well It’s finally official. Daigo Umehara, aka “The Beast”, of Team MadCatz and a man who needs no introduction, is finally confirmed to participate in Southern California Regionals. This brings the tally now up to 3 well known top players from Japan, including Sakonoko and Tokido, confirmed to attend. Mark “MarkMan” Julio of MadCatz had this to say:
We are pleased to work closely with Level|Up & Tournament Legacy to support the game community at SoCal Regionals as the official arcade stick of the event. Team Mad Catz’s Daigo Umehara’s participation, along with all the talent from around the world, show just how great of a event SoCal Regionals will be!
