While the action is raging at Evo 2018 this weekend, it’s about time to get into some game announcements! Cross Counter TV has just revealed that Arc System Works is set to make a World Premiere announcement later tonight at the Bar Fights event taking place at the House of Blues in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be streamed at, with the festivities kicking off at 8:00 P.M. PT and lasting for around 6 hours, until 2:00 A.M. PT on Sunday morning.

We’ve already seen the original Guilty Gear ported to the Nintendo Switch at the company’s booth, and with this being the 20th Anniversary of the franchise — in addition to the 30th Anniversary for the company itself — could it be time to get ready to rock once again? We also know that there are nine upcoming characters set to join the cast of BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, with Cross Character Pack 4 rumored to release this Monday, August 6th. Could some of them finally be officially unveiled? ASW is also publishing the new 3D Arena Fighter, Kill La Kill The Game: IF, which has been available for Evo attendees to play for the very first time. Could we see some new characters don their Goku Uniforms and jump into the madness?

We’ll all just have to tune in tonight to find out, but keep your browser locked on to Shoryuken, as we’ll be providing you with fully-detailed coverage of whatever goes down later tonight. You can see the announcement Tweet from Cross Counter TV below.
