You might recognize Dark Sided|Somniac’s Bison from the Ultra Street Fighter IV days, but the Melbourne, Australia native has been active in his hometown’s fighting game scene since the era of Street Fighter III. Capcom was able to catch up with Somniac at Battle Arena Melbourne 9, where he took 25th place after clashing with some of the world’s best.

Somniac is actually the winner of Battle Arena Melbourne 5 and 7, and has a lot of unique insight into his country’s now prominent Street Fighter scene. A few cool pieces of Australian fighting game history were extracted for the unknown international observer in the interview–which you can view in full in the video below.
