Umehara reveals first details of his 2013 projects

SRK just posted a nice interview with Daigo Umehara from during Capcom's Street Fighter 25th Anniversary tournament in San Francisco.

The biggest news is Umehara has revealed that he will continue promoting arcade gaming like he did in the past two years. He will start as early as January 19 somewhere in Sapporo City (far northern of Japan). Furthermore, all the revenue from the events will be donated to buy wheelchairs for a non-profit organization that assists handicapped people. (The organization is lead by Osamu Ichikawa. The disabled player was helped by both Umehara and SRK community.)

The other interesting information is he wants to play SSF4AE2012 at highest level for fans so he doesn't want to spend time on other fighting games. (There goes the dream of seeing him play Darkstalkers Resurrections in a tournament?)
