AnimEVO’s King of Fighters XIV tournament offering five thousand dollar pot

You’re all lucky I’m not going, yessire…

As part of next month’s EVO 2018 fighting game tournament, publishers SNK and Atlus have teamed up to offer a nice $5,000 cash pot for the winners of a King of Fighters XIV tourney, held at fun side-event AnimEVO.

AnimEVO is an adjacent event that runs parallel to the main Evolution Championships. AnimEVO features a cool selection of classic competitive titles, which this year includes Gundam Versus, Windjammers, Melty Blood, Catherine, Samurai Shodown II, even TMNT: Tournament Fighters, among many others.

SNK’s brilliant KoF XIV will be in attendance, with the classic arcade developer teaming up with Atlus to offer the four-figure prize as a pot to be divided up among the eventual winners. If I was going, I’d beat everyone, but I’m not, so I won’t. (Also, I’d actually go 0 – 2, guaranteed.)

AnimEVO 2018 takes place at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, between August 3-5.
