KOEI TECJMO America celebrates twenty-two years of their fighting franchise by announcing Dead or Alive EVO Showdown 2018. This tournament series will take place between August 3rd and August 5th of 2018, culminating in Dead or Alive 5 Last Round!
In a press address, Dead or Alive 5 series producer Yosuke Hayashi and director Yohei Shimbori said:
“To the DEAD OR ALIVE fans and fighting game fans, thanks to you all we are proudly announcing that DOA5 Last Round will take part in the world’s largest fighting game festival EVO.
5 years have passed since the DOA5 series started and it’s been played by more than 10 million gamers. Meanwhile, the DOA community has expanded to become larger than ever before.
To proceed to the next stage, we announced the end of the DOA5 series in December, but to my surprise the gods of fighting games have given us another chance to let players enjoy this franchise at an event once more.
Though it’s a side tournament, the fact that DOA is joining EVO itself is key, and something which we have been longing for over 10 years.”
This competition and celebration of the series’ history will offer Dead or Alive competitors the opportunity to meet fellow combatants and gain access to exclusive merchandise for the series that will only be available at EVO 2018. The tournament will also hold a special Last Round, a title first.
If you want to get in on more of there action, you can register for the special tournament or for spectator tickets at the official EVO website.
