February 15, 2019. That’s the date for Evo Japan 2019 — and with today’s most-recent announcement from EVOJapanNews, we know that in just two months we’ll get to see high-level play in the following titles:

  • Tekken 7
  • Blazblue: Cross Tag Battle
  • SoulCalibur VI
  • Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition
  • The King of Fighters XIV
  • Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2

There are certainly some surprises for spectators and players alike in this list. There’s obvious omissions of two of the FGC’s biggest games right now: DragonBall FighterZ and new superstar Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. If we turn to Evo Business Director Mark “MarkMan” Julio’s Twitter, we get a sense as to why this happened, and how not all hope is lost for Smashers and Saiyans.

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.
