Arcade Legacy in Cincinnati, Ohio is one of the few Vampire Savior hotspots in the United States. Kyle Wattula, one of the arcade’s top players, is currently visiting Japan. Last weekend he participated in one of the Vampire Savior tournaments at Takada Baba Mikado in Shinjuku, Tokyo. In a kumite at the event, Kyle’s Morrigan had the chance to face off against many of Japan’s top Savior players, including DD, Kaji, Komemaru, Kosho, KEN and many more. See how well he does in a rare international Vampire Savior clash below.

Players (in order of appearance):

Sasunii (Sasquatch), Tsuchineko (Q-Bee), Sebone (Gallon), SigSig (Bulleta), MAB (Gallon), Nishiken (Morrigan), Ego (Lei-Lei), Okekebi (Sasquatch), Funou (Q-Bee), Toho (Bulleta), STO (Lei-Lei), Sasazuka (Lei-Lei), Kowappa (Sasquatch), Ora Q (Q-Bee), KEN (Gallon), Buzz (Gallon), Sakamoto (Q-Bee), Hisashi (Lei-Lei), Uminoko (Aulbath), DD (Sasquatch), Komemaru (Zabel), Kaji (Lilith), Kosho (Bulleta)

Kyle will also be participating in Devil’s PlayGround 2 this weekend, playing in the qualifier with a chance to make it to the finals.

A quote from Lei-Lei player Sasazuka on Kyle’s play:

At least from watching Kyle’s play, it seems that foreign players also are properly advance guarding. I think Kyle would be quite strong if he used a stronger character than Morrigan. If you underestimate the foreign player’s level they’ll catch you sleeping…

    Kyle’s Morrigan is hella sweet.

  • A friend translated the text at the beginning of the video:

    “Who is Kyle W.?
    Based in Cincinnati, Ohio’s Arcade Legacy, he is the
    US’s top player. He is also the sponsor of a VS tournament that will be
    held at Arcade Legacy June 15th and 16th. He is currently the
    moderator of a foreign VS forum.”

    “Kyle W. vs. Japan
    In commemoration of this upcoming tournament, a
    kumite was held. Due to time constraints, battles with every player was
    not possible, so only players from the upcoming tournament were
    eligible to play against him.”
