The fine folks over at Hold Back to Block recently uploaded their very first interview from Evo 2013 this past weekend, featuring none other than the Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012 champion, Xian of Team Desperation Move and Mad Catz. They touch on some great topics here, including how he prepared for the tournament, his early time with fighting games, why he switched from Yun to Gen (“I wanted to be the people’s champion more than being just the champion,”), and more.
One of the more interesting moments in the interview comes when Xian is asked what he plans to do next now that he’s won an Evo tournament. While his sights are obviously set on strengthening his own game for future tournaments, he also plans to carry the victory back to his homeland of Singapore and help the rest of his community level up.
In addition to this interview, Hold Back to Block put together a trio of “Moments” videos over the weekend that quickly showcase the emotions on display from both the players and the crowd when EG|Justin Wong, AGE|NYChrisG, and coL|Filipino Champ qualified for top eight in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
