Information[edit]

Since 2008, Kazunoko has been making a name for himself in multiple fighting games franchises, namely in 2d fighting games. With multiple top placings in the biggest Street Fighter, Guilty Gear, BlazBlue, Dragon Ball FighterZ, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle and Persona 4 Arena tournaments in the world, he has cemented himself as one of the most successful multi-fighting game players in recent times.
