EVO and Aksys Games Partner up!

It is with great honor that we announce our next awesome collaboration: the EVO Championships Series + Aksys Games Team-Up! Aksys Games will be there holding it down with their illest 2D fighter, BlazBlue! We’re gonna be running the official EVO/Aksys Games Exhibition Tournament,  one-on-one style, 3-vs-3 style, and a bad-ass 5-vs-5 invitational teams tournament! We’re gonna be giving away some mad prizes and spreading the wonder that is BlazBlue. Wanna know more? Wanna man-up or girl-up and see how you hold up against the world’s best? Then hit the jump!

For uninitiated, EVO Championships Series is basically the granddaddy of all fighting game tournaments in the USA! The only other event that’s close to it is Japan’s Super Battle Opera (Tougeki) Tournament. But other than SBO, if you’re a die hard fighting game fanatic, you owe to yourself to be at this event! If you wanna know more, check out www.evo2k.com.  Here’s what’s happening at EVO!

    I’m hoping East Coast gets a Region Invite. We’ve got plenty of good people here, BEAST COAST REPRESENT!

    Also, awesome image.

    In Harry’s world where unicorns and fairies prance around in green meadows and flowers, that’s how you spell “Casino” I think Adobe will need to add a spell check option in Photoshop.

    East Coast has the Most, son! I’m hoping for a tremendous tier upset, like a Bang or Haku-Men reaching the finals. It’d be a hell of alot more interesting then what will happen, which is v13 vs. Ara/rach.
