A classic Tekken talent returns to the arena!
Long known in Japan’s Tekken scene as a strong player in prior days, Yuyu made a return to the spotlight in Daigo Umehara’s Kemonomichi 2 event, where she battled Tanukana in a down-to-the-wire Tekken 7: Fated Retribution FT10 exhibition match — and a Xiaoyu mirror match, at that! Yuyu emerged victorious — which was good, as reportedly she had stated a loss would mean she would give up Tekken altogether.
Now, after putting her competitive pride on the line at Kemonomichi, she is returning to international competition as part of the UYU esports team!
We're happy to announce our newest player UYU | YUYU (@moyugure_n) and we wish her the best of luck this weekend! Check her out on #WNF NOW! https://t.co/UUzpG0BTVV#CB2018 #UYUForever pic.twitter.com/JRuPhj9MZ4

This might just be the best combination of team prefix and player tag in FGC history. Watch for Yuyu to be a serious threat in the Tekken brackets at this weekend’s Combo Breaker 2018.
