Umehara confirmed for USF4 exhibition at Chokaigi 2014

It's announced today that an USF4 exhibition matches will be held in this year's Chokaigi (Game Area).

Participating players are Daigo Umehara (was also in 2012 and 2013), Bon-chan, Momochi, Tokido, Mago, and Kazunoko. Commentator is R.

Chokaigi is a yearly grand-scale Niconico fan event that began in 2012. While the event is struggling to gain some profit, the growing number of the attendees indicates that they're doing something right.

For reference

Tokyo Game Show - 210,000 attendees (2 public days)
Chokaigi 2 (2013) - 100,000 attendees (and 5 million viewers on net) (2 days)

Chokaigi 3 (2014) will held on April 26-27 at Makuhari Messe (same location as Tokyo Game Show).

Update: The exhibition will be held on April 26 at 16:00 JST. A live streaming is planned.

There'll be 3 matches, using first-to-five format.
  • Kazunoko vs. Mago
  • Momochi vs. Tokido
  • Umehara vs. Bon-chan
Producer Sugiyama and AP Ayano will also come to talk about PS3/Xbox 360 version of USF4 that will be released in Japan on August 7.
