Last time it was SCARZ who represented Japan in Shanghai. Soon after the eXTREMESLAND 2018 came to an end, SCARZ had a fallout with their sponsors Absolute and this lead to the termination of the team. Will the disbanded roster come together to play for their country or will a new team represent Japan at the event?
