This year's Evo extravaganza brought a range of reveals along with the high-end competitive play, and included some details related to the first ever Evo Japan.

It'll take place in Tokyo from 26th to 28th January and will feature two prominent Nintendo titles in its line-up.

A notable absentee is Super Smash Bros. Melee, which is long established as a major part of the core event in the US. As it's a fresh start for Evo in Japan, however, it's unsurprising that it's the most recent entry in the series given the nod. 

As for ARMS, is missed out on a user vote to appear at Evo 2017 in Las Vegas, so the Tokyo event will give the Switch fighting game its full debut.
