Tokido talks top 10 players in Japan, the need for a new Street Fighter title, training regimen and more WW|Ryan Hart recently sent us an interview he conducted with MCZ|Tokido that was published on the Low Land Lions website. Tokido talks on various subjects including the condition of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 in Japan, how his training consists of 80 hours of play per week, lists the top 10 Japanese players in his opinion and more.


Below is a bit to get you started.

RH: Who are the top ten best players in Japan right now in your opinion?

T: “Well, when I look at the names in the current Topanaga it seems they are in the top ten. In no particular order I think:

Bonchan
Fuudo
Kazunoko
Umehara
Uryo
Haitani
Sako
Tokido
Mago
Momochi

RH: Do players in the Japanese community feel that AE 2012 needs a new version to re-balance the characters or are they happy with the game as it is currently?

T: “People in Japan are honestly bored with the game, rather than an update people want a new game. People are just bored with the SF4 system and releasing a new version won't change that. At best it'll be popular for a little while but eventually the same problem will come back around. If they release a new game, it will attract new players also which is another thing a new rebalance wouldn't do.”
