Evo 2023, the world's largest fighting game festival, will take place at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, USA from August 4, 2023 to August 6, 2023 local time.
This year's event will not only feature the main tournament with eight titles, but also side tournaments and booth exhibits from various companies, which I am sure everyone who will be there is looking forward to, as it has been a long time since the event has been held.
Companies from Japan have already started to announce their exhibits and events for Evo 2023. Now SNK, whose main tournament title is THE KING OF FIGHTERS XV (KOF XV), has also announced an update!
SNK booth will be present at Evo 2023!
Lots of Events and Gifts!
The SNK booth will be located in the Bayside Exhibit Halls on August 4 and 5, 2023 local time!
The SNK booth was a huge success at EVO Japan 2023, so many people are wondering what will be shown at Evo 2023. With the announcement of the exhibition, the details have been revealed!
Prizes Available! Side Tournaments Conducted!
In addition to the main tournament, KOF XV, there will be side tournaments at the SNK booth featuring popular titles!
There will be a double-elimination tournament with two games: SAMURAI SHODOWN and GAROU: MARK OF THE WOLVES, which is the latest in the FATAL FURY series currently in production, and most importantly, there will be cash prizes!
The first place prize for each title is USD 3,000, the second place prize is USD 1,500, and the third place prize is USD 500.
Both titles are popular and have been released for quite some time, so the skill level of the players is expected to be quite high.
If you would like to attend, just sign up.
Each title is currently accepting 128 entries. Please check start.gg for more details!
Early Demo Play of NAJD
SNK has also decided to provide an Early Domo Play of NAJD, who is the next DLC character of KOF XV in this summer!
NAJD is a character from Saudi Arabia, and many people have been looking forward to her participation in the tournament, so this is a rare chance to be one of the first to use the character.
The KIM KAPHWAN of Early Demo Play at EVO Japan 2023 was very exciting, so we think it's a good idea to arrive early.
And considering that KIM KAPHWAN was available just a few days after EVO Japan 2023 ended, I have a feeling that NAJD will also be available soon after EVO 2023 ends. Stay tuned for more info!
SNK Illustrator 'EISUKE OGURA' Autograph Session！
Eisuke Ogura, who is well-known to SNK fans, will be signing autographs at the booth!
This is a rare opportunity to get an autograph from Eisuke Ogura, an illustrator who has lent his talents to KOF XV and numerous other SNK titles over the years. He will also sign posters of THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII GLOBAL MATCH for the first 100 visitors who arrive at each session!
Considering the number of visitors expected, 100 people will fly by, so if you want to get an autographed poster, you better get there early!
The sessions will take place on August 4 and 5, 2023, from 14:00 to 15:00 on both days!
Daily FATAL FURY / GAROU Poster Giveaway!
The first 1,000 visitors to the SNK booth at Evo 2023 each day will receive a free concept art poster for the new game in the FATAL FURY series!
And since we don't have much information yet, nor are there any merchandise available. So don't miss your chance to win a poster.
The design will change daily, with the main visual being Rock Howard on August 4 and Terry Bogart on August 5, 2023. I want them both, and I want to display them side by side!
As a SNK fan, you should head for the SNK booth when the doors open both days!。
Registering for KOF XV is Now Open! Winner Gets Invited to SWC!
Although the SNK booth will be set up at Evo 2023, the main tournament will be the center of attention at Evo 2023.
KOF XV has been selected for the main tournament, and registration is now open on start.gg until July 10, 2023 at 13:59 (UTC+09:00)!
Not only will there be prizes and championships, but the winner of the KOF XV tournament at Evo 2023 will also earn a spot in the finals of the SNK World Championship 2023 (SWC 2023), which will take place in the spring of 2024!
Although Evo 2023 is a big stage, perhaps the true KOF XV world champion will be decided at SWC 2023.
We hope you will consider attending Evo 2023 to be at the top of the KOF XV world!
