Famitsu reported today that Fuudo and Itabashi Zangief have signed a sponsorship deal with the computer peripheral maker Razer. They will compete under Team Razer and also participate in the development of "Razer Arcade Stick" "in 2012."
Fuudo is actually a company employee and used to say that a mouse maker tried to sign him since last year (from this interview). So this is some surprise.
The more surprise is Razer actually had Kazunoko, Nekojita, and Uryo play exhibition matches in their booth at Tokyo Game Show 2011 (see report). But they did not sign any of them.
