Daigo is going to get bodied at MvC3.

Doubtful.

Tokido did extremely well at final round in MvC3, similar situations and skill sets.

To add to that, he actually just won MvC3 at stunfest in France.

Does Daigo actually care about MVC3, or did the EVO planners just ask him to pretend like he cares?

Where a prize pot's involved, why wouldn't he care?

I barely playing fighting games, but I enjoy watching the tournament streams and shit so its pretty cool that hes basically calling US players out like this.

Hes got nothing else to prove in the world of SF, why not take over the Marvel title as well?

The competition (especially in America) has stepped up since then. I don't know how good the competition in Japan is, but it it probably on a different tier than Japan right now.

Daigo will make it out of pools because hes Daigo, but when he runs into the MvC oldschoolers I don't think he's going to go very far.

MvC3 is a little too different from 2 to make the experience have any serious impact (See Sanford being ass at this game, Combofiend winning the first MvC3 major)

Regardless, its all wait and see at this point, we have no indication of how good he is at this game.

He's challenging America on MvC3? Really... do they even play that game seriously in japan?
Quick, someone find that JP Viewtiful Joe combo video!

They've got some nasty shit to put on display of their own. I've seen a fair bit of Japanese stuff posted in the MvC3 OT, but as if it's popular as a whole, who knows.
