KOEI TECMO America Announces Dead or Alive EVO Showdown 2018, A Celebration of The Iconic Fighting Series
KOEI TECMO America is inviting fighters to celebrate 22 years of the iconic fighting series Dead or Alive (DOA)and also announcing Dead or Alive EVO Showdown 2018 at the Evolution Championship Series 2018 (EVO 2018) taking place August 3rd-5th, 2018 and featuring Dead or Alive 5 Last Round! This epic celebration of DOA will offer fans the chance to meet fellow competitors and access to some exclusive merchandise only available at EVO 2018.
“To the DEAD OR ALIVE fans and fighting game fans, thanks to you all we are proudly announcing that DOA5 Last Round will take part in the world’s largest fighting game festival EVO.
5 years have passed since the DOA5 series started and it’s been played by more than 10 million gamers. Meanwhile, the DOA community has expanded to become larger than ever before.
To proceed to the next stage, we announced the end of the DOA5 series in December, but to my surprise the gods of fighting games have given us another chance to let players enjoy this franchise at an event once more.
Though it’s a side tournament, the fact that DOA is joining EVO itself is key, and something which we have been longing for over 10 years.
So, I hope you will join and enjoy the show!” -Yosuke Hayashi (Producer), Yohei Shimbori (Director), DOA5 series
A special DOA5 Last Round
tournament will be held at EVO 2018 to mark the title’s first major appearance at EVO. Players will be able to register at a later date; we’ll have more details as they release. For those who want to join the celebration, you can register for tickets on the EVO official website
