Make History, Meet Yoshinori Ono, Get Trashed At Street Fighter 5 – What A day
Capcom has always been known for their unconventional means of marketing their games. Street Fighter 5 is the latest title that’s being released with more than just a few trailers.
In partnership with GAME, Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono will be attending an attempt at making history. 250 consecutive players will go one on one with European Pro Street Fighter Ryan Hart. The record in their sights is ‘Most connective opponents on Street Fighter 5′ within 12 hours.
“I’m really excited to be competing for the Guinness World Record title”commented Ryan Hart,“With the new battle system in Street Fighter V I’ve had to start from scratch, playing around with the characters and mastering their new moves so even the more casual player will be a challenge for me. This will definitely be an exciting day!”
If you fancy getting utterly wrecked by a Pro player, all you need to do is register online at the following link. The event is held in GAME’s Manchester Trafford Centre. It’ll be worth going purely to bask in Ono’s infectious enthusiasm.
