Evo Japan 2018 Announced for January, Eight Games Confirmed

EVO Japan lineup announced with BlazBlue Guilty Gear and Tekken 7 leading the way

The long-awaited Evo Japan lineup has finally been revealed.

Guilty Gear Xrd, King of Fighters 14 and BlazBlue: Central Fiction will also be included, as will Super Smash Bros for Wii U. Super Smash Bros Melee, the beloved GameCube iteration in the series, has been dropped.

Surprisingly, there is no Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite and Super Smash Bros. Super Smash Bros Melee is a notable absence as well, despite what is now a solidly locked continual presence on the main Evo stage. A couple of glimmers of hope are found within the responses to the trailer, but many are heavily criticizing the art, animations, and sounds, three things that basically make up the entirety of what's been shown so far.

Evo Japan 2018 will take place in Tokyo, Japan from January 26 through 28. But if you stuck around the Smash Bros. games for their fighting gameplay and liked what was done with Project M, you'll want to check out what Wavedash has in store with their new full game. And while the balance of power has begun to shift over the past year, Japan has always been heralded as Street Fighter's most powerful nation.

Street Fighter V's inclusion wasn't quite the slam dunk that it is for the American version of the event. Evo Japan isn't just the first time that it's going overseas - it's the first time that the world-famous fighting game tournament's held events more than once a calendar year.

It's been a long time coming.

Evo was supposed to first hit Japan in 2010, but the Tohoku Earthquake forced an indefinite postponement.

While EVO attendees gained their first opportunity to experience the newly announced title during the Wavedash EVO After Party, viewers at home will be able to watch the worldwide gameplay reveal tomorrow during EVO Sunday finals.
