Great news if you are attending Evo this year, as ARIKA will actually be doing a location test for the “mystery fighting game” they teased back on April Fools’ Day. It will be free to play on Friday and Saturday at ARIKA’s booth, with the team asking for player feedback following their time with the game.
ARIKA to exhibit in EVO 2017

By the sounds of it, it will be the same build used at the April Fools’ playtest, with Street Fighter EX characters Garuda, Kairi, and Hokuto playable. You may have to queue for quite a while as there is only one station, so make a beeline for it once your pool has finished!
Hopefully, the feedback received from Evo will help push ARIKA to fully develop what looks to be a mix of Fighting Layer and Street Fighter EX4. My prayers for Skullomania may finally be coming true.
There is still time to register for Evo 2017! Registration closes at 11:59 PM PDT tonight.
