What can I say that hasn't already been said? Hajime "Tokido" Taniguchi AKA "The Murderface" has struck again with a most impressive showing at Shadowloo Showdown 2013 #SS2k13. He secured top 8 placings in each game he chose to compete in, including Second place in KOF13. Icing on the cake was a victory in the completely stacked Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition ver 2012 tournament.
With this victory Tokido secures his place in history as the first winner of a unique Notifuro Zangetsu award. Thanks to everyone at Shadowloo Showdown, Boss Logic and especially all the players and spectators that make these events live. Stay tuned for more...
Very special thanks to Mad Catz Tokido's sponsor, great supporter of eSports, and the Fighting Game Community. Shout outs to Markman
This year at Shadowloo Showdown (2013) - Notifuro has donated a custom hand painted katana sword to the event, in which the winner of Street Fighter will receive. Normally the sword would of been laser etched onto the blade but there was an issue with shipping carved blades to Australia. Notifuro also plans on
handing out swords to many gaming events in North America in the near future.
A bonus to receiving a sword in general, is Notifuro has chosen the bankai sword form of soul reaper Kurosaki Ichigo (named Zangetsu) from the hit anime series Bleach. Not surprising since Notifuro has its roots from Japan.
If you haven't already seen the live stream of the event I suggest doing so now, as there are only several more days until it is over. http://www.shadowlogic.com.au/
This year the wonderful team of Shadowloo decided to work with Notifuro on creating the design concepts for their event. You will find the standard Shadowloo Showdown 2013 shirts at the event being worn by players & staff members. The staff members will have a special design on the sleeve of the shirt, symbolizing the unity between Notifuro & Shadowloo.
You will also see the Shadowloo team handing over a sword to the winner of the Street Fighter event. The sword is a replica from the anime 'Bleach' when Ichigo goes into bankai form. There was an issue with the laser engraving company we used and had to find a person to hand paint onto the sword and sheath. Don't fret though, Notifuro has managed to work out all issues with the laser engraving company that other swords will be handed out at other events in North America.
Remember the event is October 11th til October 13th.
