Although this year’s Evo is coming to a close later tonight, there’s already a couple more in the works. Not only will Evo itself return next year, but we can also expect Evo Japan, which will bring the event outside of the United States for the first time, next January.
The event’s lineup will consist mostly of what you’d expect from a major fighting game tournament: Tekken 7, Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2, The King of Fighters XIV, BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Super Smash Bros. For Wii U, and Street Fighter V. The tournament will also include Arms, Nintendo’s long-range, springy fighter. This will mark the game’s Evo debut (though it’s likely to be at other major fighting game tournaments before then).
The event will take place From January 26 to 28. You can watch the latest trailer for the event below.
