Chūbu

Jump to navigationJump to search

Chūbu is a Smash region comprised of five prefectures. These prefectures include Aichi, Gifu, Nagano, Shizuoka, and Yamashi and sometimes Mie. Traditionally, the region would also include the Hokuriku region; however Hokuriku is often separated as a Smash region due to its relative isolation.

Chūbu is typically regarded as the third most significant Japanese region in Smash. The most prominent tournaments typically occur in the Aichi prefecture, around the Nagoya metropolitan area. The region hosted one of the earliest notable Smash 64 and Melee tournament series known as the Japan United Smash Festa Round-Robin. Out of this era rose players like Sigurd, a high level Marth, and Smasher. Since then several other notable series have developed in the region including Karisuma, Gifu smash and EVISUMA. Karisuma, directed by Isotaku, in particular has gained notoriety for the talent it attracts.

While Chūbu was unable to keep pace with Kantō and Kansai with later games, the region still saw the development of significant talent. Brawl saw the rise of many of the regions's most famous players including DIO, Earth, Fuwa, Sigma,Taiheita, Tsu~ Summer, Uto, and YB. Earth, in particular, would become known as the world's strongest Pit player in both Brawl and Smash 4 and would be regarded as among the strongest Japanese players. Smash 4 also saw players like Hatsuyuki, ikep and Lv.1 develop a reputation as some of the top players at their characters.
