The Kemonomichi 2 event wrapped up yesterday. This pitted some very talented players against one another in three special exhibitions.

Kotaka Shoten would face off against Ito in Super Street Fighter 2: Turbo. Yuyu would also do battle with RB|Tanukana in Tekken 7.

Finally, CYG|Daigo would take on 2017 Street Fighter 5 EVO champion, FOX|Tokido. Obviously this meant that they'd be playing Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. No matter who won these sets, the spectators were in for quite the treat.

To commemorate Kemonomichi 2, we've got highlights to showcase. First, let's focus on Kotaka Shoten's and Ito's Super Street Fighter 2: Turbo first-to-ten set.

Kotaka Shoten was playing as Guile against Ito's Dee Jay. Both fighters had exceptionally good projectiles to work with here.

Despite this, caution had to be utilized. A single jump-in attack could be enough to snowball an opponent's entire life bar.

Now it's time to take a look at Daigo's and Tokido's matches in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition.
