Posted on December 09, 2012 by Oscar Gonzalez

After 8 qualifiers that were spread out across the globe, the best of the best gathered for the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Finals in San Francisco to crown the best of Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Street Fighter III Third Strike Online Edition, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition 2012 and Street Fighter X Tekken.  Up for grabs is thousands of dollars from Capcom, a special Mad Catz arcade stick, and a new Scion FR-S Sports Coupe for the winner of Street Fighter X Tekken.

Super Street Fighter II Turbo was the first game to be completed, and was dominated by Americans with the final three being regulars in Super Street Fighter II Turbo events across the U.S.

Super Street Fighter II Turbo

1st - Damien " Damdai" Dailidenas ($3500)

2nd - Quoc "Afro Legends" Hung Nguyen ($2200)

3rd - John "Choiboy" Choi ($1500)

 

Street Fighter III 3rd Strike Online was a different story with Japanese players taking the top three spots.

Street Fighter III 3rd Strike Online

1st - Jo "MOV" Egami ($3500)

2nd - Hajime "MCZ Tokido" Taniguchi ($2200)

3rd - Yusuke "EG Momochi" Momochi ($1500)

 

Prior to tournament day, two competitors were unable to attend, requiring Capcom to find alternates to take their place.  Sao Paulo qualifier for Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition 2012 and Street Fighter X Tekken, GR|Breno_Fighters, was unable to acquire a visa in time for the tournament and was replaced by Vance "Vangief" Wu For AE while Paul KS Jibbo" replaced Breno in Street Fighter X Tekken.   On Friday, Austin qualifier Jakob "Happy Medicine" Davis had to pull out from the tournament with a case of pneumonia that would have made travel harmful to himself and others.   David was replaced by Ari "EG fLoE" Weintraub who placed third in the same Austin qualifier. 

Korea's Infiltration and Japan's Daigo and Fuudo have all been Street Fighter IV Evo champs with Infiltration being the current title holder.  In the winner's finals, Daigo defeated Infiltration fairly easily forcing Infiltration to take on Fuudo in the loser's finals.  After a tough match, Infiltration won the match and would have to face Daigo once again in the grand finals.  This time around, Infiltration won two sets of three against Daigo in easy fashion to win first place and $25k. 

Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition 2012

1st - Seonwoo "WW/MCZ Infiltration" Lee ($25000)

2nd - Daigo "MCZ Daigo" Umehara ($10000)

Sethlolol was the last American left taking on Korean's Infiltration who had lost against Japan's Tokido.  After beating Sethlolol, Infiltration would have to come from the loser's bracket to win.  Infiltration and Tokido went the distance with Infiltration taking it all, winning another $25k as well as a new car thus solidifying himself as being the dominant Street Fighter player in the world.

Street Fighter X Tekken

1st - Seonwoo "WW/MCZ Infiltration" Lee ($25000 + car)

2nd - Hajime "MCZ Tokido" Taniguchi ($10000)
