King Funk (Social Media, Commentary)
King Funk got into the Smash community with Brawl in Portugal in 2008. Moving to Denmark in 2010 in order to begin his studies, he switched to Melee as it was more popular in Scandinavia. Throughout his smash career he has traveled to many countries around Europe and the world (including the US and Japan) to participate in tournaments and eventually started to organize his own series “King Funk’s Castle”. Ever since picking up other fighting games such as Street Fighter, Marvel and King of Fighters after Apex 2012, and having followed the larger Fighting Game Community long before that, King Funk makes it one of his goals to bridge the gap between the Smash community and other fighting games. He is now one of the writers on shoryuken.com.
