Japanese Player Gachikun Wins CPT Asia Regional Finals, Advances To Capcom Cup


Japanese Street Fighter V specialist Kanamori Tsunehori better known as Gachikun has dominated the Asia Regional finals of Capcom Pro Tour last weekend at South East Asia Major event in Singapore. Gachikun managed to plow through seven of the best Street Fighter specialists in Asia without losing a single match. His thirst for victory led to the elimination of his fellow Japanese player CYG|Fuudo, Singapore’s very own RZR|Xian before moving to the Grand Finals. Gachikun with his character Rashid faced 2017 SFV EVO Champ Tokido with his main Akuma during the Grand Finals. What was previously thought of as fierce battle turned into a very short one with Gachikum taking down Tokido in a punishing 3-0 victory.

Gachikum is the third confirmed qualifier for the prestigious Capcom Cup with the first spot allotted to the 2017 Champ Menard from the Dominican Republic and the second by NASR|Angry Bird who won the European Regional Finals. The next regional finals will take place in Sao Paulo Brazil for the LATAM region will take place in Sao Paulo Brazil on November 2-4 followed by the North America Regional Finals at Red Bull Conquest in Washington DC on November 17-18, 2018. Capcom Cup 2018 will take place at the Luxor Hotel’s Esports Arena in  Las Vegas, NV on December 14-16, 2018 with a prize pool of $250,000 + DLC Prize Pool Bonus.
