EVO 2017 lineup

EVO 2017 has 2 Smash Bros. Titles, Possibility for ARMS or Pokken

This July, EVO 2017 will feature 2, maybe 3, Nintendo games. EVO 2017 will take place at the Mandalay Events Center between July 14-16 in Las Vegas. The event is a chance for all fighting-game players to come and compete in huge events. These events can be considered as the world championships for these games.


ARMS: What Does it Need to Succeed?

My first thoughts seeing the ARMS trailer were “This is going to be just as ridiculous as 1-2-Switch, isn’t it?” and it honestly was. ARMS looks like a very weird game, but this is Nintendo so I’m not going to make any assumptions about how well a game will do based on its visual style.
