Fuudo and Itabashi Zangief sign on with Team Razer
A major victory for Team Razer in the fighting game community as they have just signed two champion players both notable for their skills in Super Street Fighter 4 and Virtua Fighter 5. Fuudo, whose name needs no introduction as he won Super Street Fighter 4 at EVO, and Zangief is no slouch himself.
They will also be working with Razer on their fight stick which is still in development. We're looking forward to seeing how they will do in the rest of 2012, and indeed, at EVO.
Here's the release from Razer, via their facebook page.
