With Ultra Street Fighter 4 being the main game at EVO this year, it's safe to say that the majority of us are anxiously awaiting the event's arrival. However, thanks to Seth Killian, a prominent member of the FGC who needs no introduction, some news was brought to our attention that single-handedly elevated the hype levels to over 9000.

The five Japanese fighting gods are headed to Las Vegas in order to compete at EVO 2014. For those who may be unfamiliar with these players, the five consists of MCZ|Daigo, MCZ|Tokido, HORI|Sako, Haitani, and Nuki.

Each of these players has been blessed with divine fighting game skills that spans across multiple titles. The former four have been actively competing in the Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 tournament circuit throughout the years, and even though Nuki hasn't allotted quite as much time with the game as the others, he's spent much of this year practicing up and clocking in countless hours with the arcade release of Ultra Street Fighter 4.

EVO 2014 is already shaping up to be one of the most hype events of the year, and the first major Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournament is going to be absolutely stacked with amazing players.
