The official announcement trailer for EVO 2018 just went live moments ago. Today, we learned the dates and location for the year's largest fighting game tournament.

Next year's event will return to the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. We'll be able to catch all of the action on August 3rd through the 5th.

Traditionally, EVO has taken place some time in July. Though the August dates might throw some people off, it isn't far off from this past year's late July commencement.

Today's trailer showcases numerous moments from events past, as well as footage of different games we'll likely see on the official line up. Dragon Ball FighterZ is a title that will see its release in January 2018, and based on the attention it has been getting over these past few months, it is a strong contender for the main EVO 2018 line up.

Of course, we won't know the official games line up for next year until it is officially announced. This usually happens around January or February each year.
