The Capcom Pro Tour North American Finals at Red Bull Battle Grounds has come to an end and a winner has been crowned.

After an open qualifier event that saw Japanese pro Hajime "Tokido" Taniguchi and Taiwan's Arubi "RB" Kao enter the sixteen player North American Final bracket, it was Florida native Du "NuckleDu" Dang that took home the trophy.

After losing 3-1 to Tokido earlier in the day, NuckleDu powered through a bracket reset with his main Guile to win.

Following a trophy ceremony with Capcom's Yoshinori Ono, another major event occurred: A new challenger was announced. The lights flickered off in the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall and a video lit up the screen revealing Akuma will join the Street Fighter V roster. The classic character will be playable at the 2016 Capcom Cup in December, the reveal noted.

Tokido and RB Qualify for the Top Sixteen

Many high profile names appeared during the Last Chance Qualifier, but none with as much strength behind it as Tokido. He managed to turn one of the scariest brackets of the year into a complete show of dominance. Moving into the final bracket is only part of his goals, though. His dominant performance is a telling sign of the absolute havoc he intends to unleash on the final day.

Despite finishing in second place, RB’s Urien was the real star of the show. Audience’s gasped and cheered as unseen set ups play out across the screen. Urien may not have unblockables in Street Fighter V, but you wouldn’t know that going off of the madness that played out on screen. Nobody was safe from the mix-ups, not even the most prestigious and knowledgeable players were spared. The horror of the unknown anybody near him in the bracket is facing is going to be unreal.
