What You Need to Know:
- EVO, the largest fighting game tournament in the world kicks off today in Las Vegas and we have some good news for Pokken fans! The event kicks off from 10am and will wrap up July 15th.
- This year, Nintendo is attending the event with a booth space featuring playable kiosks for the Pokkén Tournament DX fighting game, which stars popular Pokémon characters and launches for the Nintendo Switch console on Sept. 22. During EVO, Nintendo will be playfully “recruiting” people to join the virtual Pokkén Tournament DX Academy, which provides a direct line of communication between Nintendo and the Pokkén Tournament DX players.
- By signing up for the Academy, members will receive exclusive tips and tricks directly from Nintendo and the game’s development team, as well as invitations to a special Nintendo event at PAX West in Seattle. EVO will feature visually engaging posters promoting the Academy, as well as a sign-up sheet at Nintendo’s booth. Fans and pro players who sign up will be entered into an on-site drawing for the chance to win a Nintendo Switch system and the Pokkén Tournament DX game when it launches on Sept. 22. Good luck at the event and have fun at this year's EVO!
