It looks like CvS2 isn’t the only fighter to get a sudden late entry into Evo Japan in 2018 — Pokkén Tournament DX will join the festivities as well!

This free entry, Waseda-style tournament will be held on Saturday, January 27 at Ikebuburo Sunshine City. For those unfamiliar with Waseda style: Teams A and B have their 1st players battle each other, then 2nd players play each other. No single person can carry a whole team with this format — if that sounds familiar, this is the same team format used in North America’s Final Boss Team Tournament.

Though this is a side event, this team tournament’s finals will be broadcast live from the main stage of Evo Japan.

Hey, I'm just a 3D-head in a 2D-world. I like pretty much all FGC stuff, and I really like hearing about the way people think about games.
