EVO is heading to Japan

More details to come at Tokyo Game Show

At long last, the Evolution Championship Series is expanding to Japan, EVO business development manager Mark Julio announced Sunday alongside Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono and Bandai Namco’s Katsuhiro Harada at this year’s tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

EVO Japan was first announced at EVO 2010, but organizers were forced to postpone the tournament indefinitely following the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami that ravaged Japan in early 2011.

According to Julio, more details about the new event will be unveiled at Tokyo Game Show in September.
