Today KOEI TECMO Europe announce the “DEAD OR ALIVE EVO Showdown 2018” at the Evolution Championship Series 2018 (EVO 2018) from the 3rd to the 5th August 2018 – featuring DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round! This grand celebration of the DOA fighting franchise will offer fans the opportunity to meet fellow competitors and gain access to some exclusive merchandise which will only be 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.
5ears 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
