Watch the [sài] 2017 trailer featuring Tekken 7FR, the lead-up tournament to EVO Japan 2018
EVO Japan releases the trailer for the lead-up fight game tournament.
Just a few minutes ago EVO Japan released a trailer for their [sài] event. [sài] serves somewhat as a precursor to EVO Japan on May 20-21, 2017. Tekken 7: Fated Retribution is the first game highlighted in the trailer, and is surprising absent of Street Fighter V. This does not mean it won’t be present at EVO Japan, but we shall see. It’s just good to see Tekken given so much shine.
This tournament is in collaboration with TOPANGA and GODSGARDEN, in order to “unite gaming communities and celebrate the fighting spirit in Japan.” This event will be organized using the Evolution Championship Series formula, using the double-elimination format. This event will be an open tournament, allowing anyone to register and compete. There will be no preferential treatment or seeding based on skill level for the tournament bracket placement.
[sài] will take place at Akihabara UDX, and is free to enter. There will be three main games, being Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2, and one other game that is yet to be determined. More information will be announced soon on the Evo Japan website.
