Nuki confirmed for Evo 2012

It is announced today that Nuki will compete in Tournament of Legends (July 6-7), the 32-man Super Street Fighter II Turbo tournament side event at Evolution 2012 (July 6-8).

Nuki used to be at Evo 6 times. The last time was 2008. And he then quitted Street Fighter IV in 2009.

This year in February, KSK bought an Xbox 360 with SSF4AE and set up Internet for Nuki. That was when he actually started playing again. It looks like the hype brought him back.

This news should also mean that he will compete in SSF4AE2012 at Evo 2012. Although he still needs to learn all the matchups of new characters.

Tournament of Legends already confirmed Tokido. We also expect to see Daigo Umehara added to the list of players as he was the winner of the SSF2T side tournament last year at Evo 2011.

Umehara and Nuki are the only 2 players in history who won both Evolution and Tougeki in the same year on the same game. Umehara won Evo 6 times, Nuki won 3.
