Last week, we received word of Evo Japan, LLC being registered in Japan. This move gave us the indication that it was indeed coming, and soon. Joey “Mr. Wizard” Cuellar has just shared even further news on Twitter regarding Evo Japan, which now has a rough date scheduled.

One slide from the Tokyo Game Show gives the most prestigious fighting game tournament’s debut in Asia a tentative January 2018 launch.

While no exact date has been penciled in, we at least know when to reserve our flights, roughly. Be ready for January 2018, folks!
