The folks at Dell Alienware Japan are proud to announce that Naoki “Nemo” Nemoto will be flying their flag for future Street Fighter V competition.
Nemo is a well-rounded competitor with obvious skill in a number of fighting titles, but is perhaps best known (in recent memory, anyway) for his Rolento play in Ultra Street Fighter IV. His take on the baton-twirling mercenary involved rolls, wall dives and dashes aplenty; he seemed to never stand still. If you caught him on the right day, he also seemed never to block, instead opting to use superior movement to overwhelm his opponents and force them to defend or die–often both.
Nemo, an engineer by day, will be saving nights and weekends to throw down as the new face for Alienware Japan. He hopes to send a message that anything is possible, and skill in fighting games isn’t tied directly to the hours played, but the way played time is spent.
While Nemo has picked up Vega in Street Fighter V and has made his way to a handful of events, one can only assume that we’ll be seeing much more of his Spanish Ninjutsu in coming months thanks to this sponsorship.
We at Shoryuken wish both Nemo and Dell Alienware Japan the best with their partnership.
