Just when you thought it was safe to wear orange and blue again.

October’s cuts to the Echo Fox roster seemed to settle down recently, and it was thought that we may have seen the end of it. However, this is not the case.

In a public announcement in both English and Japanese, both Evo 2015 and Capcom Cup 2015 champion Yusuke Momochi and his wife Yuko “ChocoBlanka” Momochi have announced their departure from Echo Fox to “begin a whole new chapter of our life from here.”

They also assured the public that Shinobism (their esports school) and their various other endeavors –including Fudoh — will remain in operation. They then hinted that they will soon “show all of you our new uniform,” while stressing that it won’t be a Shinobism or Fudoh uniform, possibly signifying that they have taken their talents elsewhere.
