Evo Panel #3: Inside the Mind of the Beast: Daigo Umehara Exposed!

By on July 15, 2011 at 10:30 am

In our third panel of Evo weekend, Seth Killian from Capcom will interview Daigo Umehara, probably the most famous street fighter player on the planet.  Priority seating for these panels will go to registered Evo attendees with a badge, so register today!

Here is a summary of the panel, which will be held Friday, July 29th at 2:00 PM.

Seth Killian sits down with EVO 2009 and 2010 Street Fighter champion MCZ Daigo Umehara for an in-depth discussion and review of past match highlights.  They will talk over and explain the tactics, player reads, moment-by-moment thought processes, and even the mistakes Daigo made on the road to his championship victories.

In addition to the panel, a new “Beast” shirt from Meat Bun will be available for the first time on site at EVO in Vegas.

The design features several elements including the mythical “Hakutaku” figure (a beast!) with six buttons, and “98”, representing the year of Daigo’s first international challenge where he fought against Alex Valle (this battle was just recently named one of the Top 10 moments in Pro-Gaming history). This will be an extremely limited-run edition shirt, sold at $20.
