Street Fighter 4 has a new world champion: South Korean Akuma player Seon-woo Lee.

Infiltration, as Seon-woo Lee is known, beat Daigo "The Beast" Umehara - perhaps the greatest fighting game player ever, on his way to glory at the Evolution 2012 tournament in Las Vegas.

In the EVO 2012 Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition Version 2012 grand final Infiltration beat Taiwan's Gamerbee, playing Adon, 3-0. Puerto Rican PR Balrog finished third. Chinese player Xiao Hai, using Cammy, finished fourth. Umehara, playing Ryu, finished fifth.

Last year's champion, Fuudo, failed to make the final eight.

Meanwhile, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 saw Ryan Ramirez, aka Filipino Champ, take top spot, using Magneto, Dormammu and Doctor Doom to defeat fellow US player Carlos Randay, aka Infrit (Nova, Spencer and Sentinel).

Justin Wong finished seventh.
