Smash gets in on the action at the upcoming [sài] in Akihabara UDX.

Taking place at Akihabara UDX in Tokyo, Japan, [sài] is a smaller event to be held May 20-21, 2017 as a lead-up to the upcoming Evo Japan–in January 2018–at the same venue. Featuring tournament events for three titles, Tekken 7: Fated Retribution and Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 were already confirmed; while many fans expected Street Fighter V to be event #3, it was announced soon after [sài]’s reveal that SFV would not be at the event.

It has now been revealed instead that the third game will be Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, officially bringing the Smash community into the event alongside Tekken’s and Guilty Gear’s faithful. It’s sure to be an exciting tournament!
