Bringing together some of the finest Street Fighter V players from the USA and Japan, esports organization YOUDEAL is hosting a special 5v5 team exhibition to determine which country is truly the best. With Daigo Umehara as Japan’s captain and Justin Wong as the USA’s, it’s going to be quite the showdown. The lineups are as follows:

Team Japan

  • GRPT|Haitani
  • GRPT|Fuudo
  • AW|Nemo
  • GGP|Kazunoko
  • Hx.Twitch.CYG BST|Daigo Umehara (team captain)

Team USA

  • RISE|Smug
  • Splyce|Filipino Champ
  • CYG BST|Snake Eyez
  • CYG BST|PR Balrog
  • FOX|Justin Wong (team captain)

Both teams are missing some heavy hitters, with both NuckleDu and Punk nowhere to be seen for Team USA, while Team Japan have let Tokido, Yukadon and Momochi sit this one out. You’ll have to be up pretty early to watch this exhibition, with it streaming live on NicoNico at 8pm JST/4am PDT tomorrow. Hopefully, there will be an English restream at some point, so non-night owls can catch up on all of the action.
