Carlsbad, Calif. – February 3rd, 2012 – Razer, one of the world’s pioneering supporters of e-Sports, in association with eSahara and Old Generations, will be sending Kim “SuperNoVa” Young Jin to his first ever international StarCraft II event in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Picked as one of the few Korean invites to the tournament by the organizers of the Intel Extreme Masters, Terran player Kim “SuperNoVa” Young Jin is one of StarCraft II’s most competitive and consistent individuals to date – a regular feature in the Korean GSL Code S competition – and Razer will be supporting his journey to the other side of the world in order to compete for a spot in the Intel Extreme Masters World Finals in Hannover.

“I have been waiting and wanting to play in international tournaments for a long time now,” says Kim “SuperNoVa” Young Jin, the Old Generations Ace player. “Finally this opportunity has come with Razer's sponsorship and I will make sure to come back to Korea with the #1 title and the hopes of competing at the Intel Extreme Masters World Championships next month.”

Seen as both a rare and momentous opportunity for SuperNoVa, the tournament will be the first in a line of many this year in which the player will be given the chance to broaden his experience on a global level in the game, a chance that few other Korean players are afforded.
