Capcom catches up with Bonchan at Battle Arena Melbourne 9

This past weekend’s Battle Arena Melbourne 9 gave us one of the big surprises of the current Capcom Pro Tour season: sticking to his guns with a character many had deemed too nerfed to be competitive, Red Bull’s Masato “Bonchan” Takahashi took his Nash all the way to grand finals, eventually winning the tournament.

Capcom’s Matt Edwards caught up with Bonchan at the event to talk about his win, and a few other topics. These include his feelings on putting Nash “back on the map” with his victory at BAM 9–hopefully inspiring other Nash players–as well as his own thoughts on the Australian competitors, and more.
