Evo Japan Dates and Titles Established at Evo 2017

EvoJapan

Revealed at EVO 2017, Icons: Combat Arena is a 3D platform-based fighter which looks quite similar to to the Smash Bros. titles.

As fighting game tournament Evo 2017 concluded in Las Vegas, Nevada, the line-up of games was announced for January's inaugural Evo Japan championship series in Tokyo, revealing that Nintendo Switch fighter Arms will be included for the first time. Interested parties will be pleased to learn that the forthcoming game from Wavedash will have its open beta hosted on Steam later this fall, but no specific date has been given.

Central Fiction, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and Arms round out the rest of the Evo Japan lineup. Melee, with Melee being more popular in America, but SSB4 winning out in Japan. Licensing issues were cited as a reason why the game did not make the lineup of Evo Japan's preview event, Sai. If you don't want to wait an entire year until the next installment of the world's premiere fighting game tournament, then I've got good news. Wavedashing (of course), edge hanging and mid-air charges are all in the game as well as a number of notable movesets which have been essentially ripped from the team's work on the Project M mod.

As of now, reception for Icons: Combat Arena is mixed to say the least. Many players have lamented the fact that Project M ceased production a while back, and seeing one of the factors in that decision here in the trailer wasn't too reassuring for fans of the mod. Hopefully, Wavedash Games are able to polish Icons before its beta release and make the game feel unique.
