Ten years on from his Super Street Fighter II Turbo win at Evo 2007, Echo Fox’s Tokido was crowned Street Fighter V champion at Evo 2017 last night. It was one of the greatest Top 8s in history, with some fantastic play from all competitors who managed to make it to the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
After the confetti had settled and the crowds had piled out of the arena, Capcom community manager Matt Edwards was able to catch up with the new champ to talk about his Evo run and thoughts during his battle against PG|Punk.
Tokido even mentions why he used a taunt combo during the match–spoilers: it’s because it’s looks “godlike”.
