Final part of Capcom-Unity's interview with Daigo Umehara Capcom-Unity put up the third and final part of their interview with Daigo Umehara, covering more fan questions. Here's an except from the piece.

4) Daigo, I have no doubt a lot of respect for you as a person and as a pro-player of street fighter.  My question is. How long does it take for you to adapt to a new fighting game such as street fighter and what do you like most about fighting games? the competitive drive, discovery of combos, tricks and setups, etc?


Daigo: Hmm… it’s hard to say, but maybe about 3 month? What do I like most about fighting games is the fact that anyone can easily pick up and enjoy a match regardless of his or her experience level.

5) Who inspires you when you play in video game tournaments? --Robert

Daigo: I wish I could give you a player's name, but I don't have any specific person in mind when it comes to winning. But the number of players definitely affects my spirit. The more there are, the more exciting it gets, and that’s a part of the reason why EVO is so great.

My father has always been my inspiration in my game playing career. He supported me in whatever I wanted to do and inspired me to do the best and be the best. I am very grateful of both my parent's generosity and warm support.
