EVO 2018 line up to be revealed on February 6th, second EVO Japan confirmed

The first ever EVO Japan has concluded, but not without the same top caliber play and excitement we've come to expect from its Las Vegas summertime sister event in the United States.

Though the show is over for the time being, audiences have not been left without something to look forward to as tournament organizers have given us confirmation of a second EVO Japan as well as an announcement date for EVO 2018's game line up.

Said date is just under one week away on February 6th. If the team follows suit from their last few years, we'll get a live stream featuring Joey "Mr. Wizard" Cuellar as he reveals each main title, one by one.

While we've gotten this announcement stream in January of years past, EVO 2018 is actually slated for a little later than previous iterations, so a February lineup reveal only follows in suit.

While we didn't get much in the way of information on EVO Japan's next event (MarkMan literally only gave us a, "We look forward to seeing you next year") it was enough to confirm the big time event will revisit the East.
