A new Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition team league has been announced in Japan, and it’s going to be an interesting test of the new pro-gaming license law in Japan.

All of the team captains (Nemo, Itazan, Fujimura [formerly Yukadon], Daigo Umehara, Moke, Tokido) are required to have Japanese pro-gaming licenses.
If the same is true of the players being picked for the draft on May 31st, then we have a very good idea of who will be among the 18 players making up each of the 3-man teams, as there are only about 22 players with the license currently. You can find out who makes each team by watching the draft life on Openrec.tv, provided you’re awake at 8:00 PM JST — that’s 6:00 AM CT.
The six teams will be competing for a grand prize of 10 million yen, or approximately $10,000 USD.
