Pokkén Tournament returns to Evo (unofficially)!
Looks like Pokkén Tournament has made it to Evo 2017 after all–as a side tournament, hosted through a partnership between Pokkén Arena and AnimEVO. The event will take place in Evo’s BYOC area, and entry is $5.00 USD–cash only, paid on-site. You naturally will need a pass to Evo 2017 itself to participate in this event–or any of the side tournaments that may be held. Keep an eye on the smash.gg page for more info on this event. It will be streamed on Twitch via KernCountyEsports.
The Pokkén Tournament community has been quite active in supporting the game that they love, fighting to keep interest alive while we wait to hear if Nintendo will finally patch the Wii U game to match the arcade version, or maybe announce a complete port for Nintendo Switch.
