The game roster for EVO Japan has been officially revealed! A trailer for the upcoming tournament, which highlighted the titles, was shown to the EVO 2017 audience during Sunday’s Finals sets.

As many viewers may remember, EVO Japan was formally announced at EVO 2016. Plans to bring the EVO experience to Japan have been in the works as far back as 2010, but due to the tragic Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, it was indefinitely put on the backburner.
The wait for the first EVO outside of North America ends early 2018, with EVO Japan taking place from January 26-28 in Tokyo.
