After over a year of waiting, we will finally get to enjoy Daigo Umehara's incredible Kemonomichi exhibition series. The pro-Street Fighter player took to his Twitter to announce the latest Kemonomichi— IV. He also put out a video on his YouTube channel which previewed the matches and gave us some information as to how things will play out.
The Kemonomichi series started back in 2018 and it was a series of exhibition matches across three games with two players playing long sets. It was one of these that produced that unforgettable match between Tokido and Daigo which the latter won 10-5 and prompted an outburst of emotion from Tokido.
In the preview, Daigo intimated that there will be four matches, although we have no idea who the combatants will be. He also revealed that the competition will take place on the 30th of December and that he is really looking forward to the matches. The idea of Kemonomichi is to bring fans of the FGC matches that they have always loved to see in a variety of games.
There isn't much else known about this edition of Kemonomichi, but if the responses on Twitter are anything to go by, you can be certain that people are super excited for the matches. We'll keep an eye on this one, and as new information is made available, we'll ensure to keep you in the know.
