- Justin Wong
- United States
Active in the fighting game scene for over a decade and witnessing the decline and phoenix-like rebirth of fighting games as a viable competitive genre, very few players in the fighting game scene have seen and experienced more than Justin Wong. Growing up on the East Coast, Justin first found the drive to take his fighting game skills to an entirely new level while playing against regulars at New York City’s Chinatown Fair arcade – and he hasn’t looked back since.
Renowned for years as one of America’s premier fighting game champions (and star of world-famous EVO moment #37 meme), Justin’s combination of skill and dedication is nearly unrivaled among his peers. With over 40 major titles under his belt split among games such as Street Fighter III: Third Strike, Super Street Fighter 4: AE, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Mortal Kombat 9, as well as multiple appearances at Japan’s Super Battle Opera tournament, Justin’s success in the scene is legendary. The “Wong Factor” – Justin’s notorious ability to swing a match back in his favor under nearly impossible odds – has provided entertainment for thousands of fans and has struck fear into the hearts of many opponents worldwide.
