Lightning fast confirms into Critical Art, stylish combos, and proficiency in both stances: Sako is still rocking Zeku in Street Fighter 5

Will we see him play the character at the Capcom Cup last chance qualifier?

We've seen Scarz|Sako play several characters over the course of Street Fighter 5. With the release of season 2's final combatant last month, however, the veteran fighting gamer has seemingly made the switch to Zeku.

Upon release, Sako was one of a handful of top players to dive right in with the ever-changing ninja. A recent set of matches shows that his practice has been consistent.

DeadAceBS uploaded a first-to-three set between Sako and a Master rank Dhalsim player named TaiwanDaimon.

As we know, Zeku can switch between two styles in battle: old Zeku and young Zeku. Each comes equipped with unique normal attacks, special moves, and gameplan.

Sako switches seamlessly between the two, landing devastating combos, frame traps, and mix ups on the opponent with each.

His Zeku is looking quite strong now, and we can only wonder if Sako will be playing him at the Capcom Cup last chance qualifier on December 8th. Depending on the outcome of the North America Regional Finals this weekend, the last chance qualifier could be Sako's final opportunity to qualify for the end-of-the-year event, so it will be interesting to see if he feels confident enough playing a character that has only been in the hands of the public for a couple of months.
