North Americans were first invited to compete in the Dance Dance Revolution World Championship for the first time. On the first try, an American won the event.
Chris “iamchris4life” Chike seeded first in the Dance Dance Revolution competition at the Sixth Konami Arcade Championships but it isn’t his only rhythm skills. He was the first person to 100 percent “Through the Fire and the Flames” on Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock. He also was the first to earn 100 percent on a level 17 Dance Dance Revolution song.
At the 5-hour 30-minute mark you can check out the final match. Cike was able to amass a 370+ combo part way through the face-off.
The Konami Arcade Championships have been held in Japan annually since 2011. Cike wasn’t the only Westerner to take part in this years event. He was joined by fellow Westerners Jeff “fungah” Lloyd and Hudson “KAZE.573” Felker.
