Representative from Japan to go to Korea for International Finals

Players who win their respective competitions will take part in IESF’s 11th eSports World Championship in Seoul, Korea. The event will take place from December 11th to the 15th of this year. Last year’s competition saw Japan’s Tekken representative make it to the semi-finals, so there are pretty high hopes of something good happening this year as well.
