Taipei, Taiwan – Aug. 1, 2018 – HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology, today announced the official headset sponsorship of Masato “Bonchan” Takahashi, also known as “The King of Sagat Players.” Bonchan, a Red Bull athlete, is beloved by many fans because of his devotion to fighting games and its community; HyperX will provide him with premium gaming headsets for tournaments, daily practice and live streaming.
