If there’s one name that’s become synonymous with streaming within the fighting game community, it’s Victor “Spooky” Fontanez. Spooky has been a pioneer in terms of live streaming fighting game community tournaments and events, and its safe to say that we wouldn’t be where we are now without him.
Now, it seems that Spooky is moving up in the world, as he has recently announced that he will be joining XSplit as a program manager for XSplit Broadcaster.
As part of this, Spooky will be spending more time in the Philippines (where XSplit’s development office is based) and Asia in general. This also means that there will be more Team Spooky broadcasts of events in the Asia Pacific region. As for current Team Spooky streams, such as the Next Level Battle Circuit, Spooky has stated that he will be backed up by other Team Spooky members during the times when he’s unable to stream himself.
Spooky will be joining other fighting game community members such as Louis “Offcast” Vigil, Yu Shen “Farpenoodle” Tan, and Kevin “Burnout Fighter” Kim who have been hired by XSplit to help them improve their software.
We here at Shoryuken wish Spooky and XSplit the best in their new relationship.
