SNK Confirms Bigger Presence For EVO Japan 2023
SNK announced this morning that they are going all-out for EVO Japan 2023, as they will have a bigger presence on the floor and in tourneys.
SNK revealed this morning they are going to have a bigger presence during EVO Japan 2023 when the event kicks off in late March. The company will have five different games holding official tournaments as part of the event, with the big one on the list being The King Of Fighters XV. But they're also going to have a booth with some activities, giveaways, and other things to do. This is a pretty big deal as SNK tends to have a presence at EVO, but this particular promotion feels a lot bigger than what they normally have planned. So anyone who loves the company and their fighting titles is in for a cool weekend when the event kicks off on March 31st at Tokyo Big Sight. We have more info on their plans for you below.
