SRK 1-on-1: HORI’s Sako at EVO 2012

Sako Noko is a player whose name rose quite quickly to celebrity status in the fighting game community with his adept blend of technical play and near perfect execution. He had previously been known for dominating Vampire Savior for a number of years, and after a short break returned to pretty much re-invent Cammy from the ground up for everyone with even a passing interest in the character.

I had a chance to catch up with Sako at EVO 2012, and spoke with him on everything from his personal life and the competition at EVO to his desire for a new Vampire Savior. Take a look.

Zaid Tabani has been contributing a steady stream of artistic content into the community ever since the resurgence of the fighting game boom. He's been responsible for many well known projects, including(but not limited to) the EVO 2K10 Intro Videos, The EVO 2K11 Theme Song(along with multiple other community members), the documentary series Run It Back and the upcoming film RANBAT. He was even featured in Capcom's "SUPER STREET FIGHTER IV 3D EDITION" commercial, due to his prior work with EVO. He also likes to dress up as a bat occasionally and fight a psychotic crusade against crime. That last part was a joke. Kinda.
