Nagoya Street Battle 30 summary

What: Nagoya Street Battle 30 (celebrating 3rd anniversary)
Where: Urban Square Nagoya
When: September 23, 12:00 to 22:00 (Japan Standard Time)
Why: Daigo Umehara participating (with Mago and Tokido)
Format: 3 on 3, double elimination (due to number of participants, it's changed to single elimination), character duplication is OK
Entry fee: 500 yen/player
Special: SSF4AE Ver.2012 location test
Website: nsb.blog.shinobi.jp
Stream: NSB1, NSB2

This's Umehara's first time in NSB since NSB17 (September 23, exactly one year after that) in which he won with MACHI and Momochi. (defeating Justin Wong, Ricky Ortiz, and Marn on the way) Ono, KSK, a Hori guy, was there as well.

Nagoya is 370 kilometers from Tokyo. It takes around 2 hours fastest by train but it costs around 20,000 yen round trip. Cheaper options means slower. This's why you don't see players from Tokyo much in the tournament. (Tokyo=Umehara/Mago/Tokido/etc., Nagoya=Momochi/Kindevu/Eita/etc.)
