Captured historical moments in video game culture are rare — we’re very good at saving the consumer side of the medium but poor at the human experience of playing games, which is why the video footage of Daigo Umehara’s and Justin Wong’s match in Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike — where Umehara impressively parries the full sequence of Chun-li’s super – is such an important relic.

Now, ten years on, both players have resurrected (albeit a little stiffly) that moment in time with an exhibition match at the Moment 37|Reloaded tournament, an event made to celebrate that iconic match. Vault the jump for to see the moment recreated, and as well as the full match replay by Super Arcade. Depending on your skill, go a little further for the original.
