Higuchi And Disciple Win Legendus Tournament
They looked unstoppable for their entire run

Higuchi, who represents Saishunkan Sol Kumamoto, was the winner of the Legendus Street Fighter 6 tournament along with his disciple, Donpisha. 

The duo were unstoppable in the tournament, taking first place in the preliminaries, and then defeating team Ryu, team Zangief, and team Luke to be crowned champions. The format involved a priliminary stage where each team, made up of a master and disciple, play each other and get points on the board. Then, the top team will be able to choose their next opponent in a top 8, single elimination bracket. 

Higuchi and Donpisha took the top spot in the preliminary with 25 points and then defeated Mago, Jr. and Bonchan's team. 

The other masters were 

  • Mago - Ryu
  • Bonchan - Luke
  • Naruo - Jamie
  • Haitani - Chun li
  • Shuto - Marisa
  • Kazunoko - Cammy
  • Jr. - Zangief

The event is another innovative way in which Japan has been drumming up interest in Street Fighter 6 and it was a roaring success with Shaka's stream, where the event was predominantly viewed, has two million views and almost 200k on YouTube. Considering the tournament was also streamed on the channels of the individual competitors, one can imagine that the event had about three million streams which is very impressive for Street Fighter. 

It will be interesting to see if these views will also translate to Street Fighter League Japan which will commence in July.
