Creators Of Smash Bros. Project M Mod Reveal Next Game

The long-awaited Evo Japan lineup has finally been revealed. However, one thing that may have factored into the mod's termination was the group's announcement of new projects being built "from the ground up", with Icons: Combat Arena likely being the game that ceased Project M's production.

Seven games will be playing during the event, with Arms, BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Guilty Gear Xrd, King of Fighters XIV, Tekken 7, Super Smash Bros 4 and Street Fighter V being the official lineup. With a beta launching on Steam this fall, Wavedash Games are attempting to bring the feeling of Smash Bros. This begs the question: Why not just play Super Smash Bros.

Not only does Japan have a strong presence in King of Fighters, but is also relatively close to China-the nation nearly universally believed to be the world's best in the game. That's three more days of fighting goodness to kick off the new year.

Evo Japan 2018 will take place in Tokyo, Japan from January 26 through 28. Strong Chinese players may find a trip to Tokyo far more feasible than a flight to Las Vegas.

FIRST REPUBLIC BANK (FRC) Earning Positive News Coverage, Analysis Shows
The institutional investor owned 152,590 shares of the bank's stock after buying an additional 13,283 shares during the period. National Pension Service owned about 0.10% of FIRST REPUBLIC BANK worth $15,344,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

In fact, there's a very stark absence of American fighting games, something that was already a rarity at most EVO events save for NetherRealm Studios' Mortal Kombat games and Microsoft's Killer Instinct (the latter of which did not make the cut at this year's championship series).

It's been a long time coming. A Japanese Evo event was originally announced in 2010 and was scheduled for May 2011, but the deadly Tohoku earthquakes in March of 2011 forced the event's indefinite postponement.

While EVO attendees gained their first opportunity to experience the newly announced title during the Wavedash EVO After Party, viewers at home will be able to watch the worldwide gameplay reveal tomorrow during EVO Sunday finals.
