First NorCal Regionals–now, eight more happy recipients revealed!

As promised, Evo is offering a $1000 pot bonus to ten different Pokkén Tournament events this year, in recognition of the Pokkén community’s fierce devotion to their game–and the money they helped raise for Make-a-Wish International as part of the Evo 2017 Player’s Choice donation drive. NorCal Regionals was the first to be announced as a recipient; now, Joey “Mr. Wizard” Cuellar has revealed eight more events that can expect the $1K Pokkén bonus. The list so far:

  • NorCal Regionals
  • Summer Jam
  • The Fall Classic
  • NEC
  • DreamHack Austin
  • DreamHack Atlanta
  • DreamHack Denver
  • Momocon 2017
  • Defend the North

As mentioned before, the tenth event will be determined by a fan vote:

Support for Pokkén Tournament remains strong, despite the ongoing wait for arcade-parity DLC characters and balancing for the Wii U version; here’s hoping for a year full of great Pokkén action wherever it gets played!
