As EVO draws ever closer, we have a bunch of stuff to announce, with more on the way! All of it is pretty huge, so I’m just going to throw a dart at the Aksys Games Dartboard of FATE™ and determine the order of importance that way.
So, without further ado, the announcements!
POT BONUSES for EVO 2016!
As is tradition, Arc System Works and Aksys Games is proud to announce that we will be contributing a $10,000 pot bonus for the main Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- tournament at EVO 2016! Be sure to tune into the finals Sunday, July 17 at 1pm PDT to watch the best Guilty Gear players in the world battle it out for glory, respect, and cold hard cash!
Notice the “s” above? That’s because there will also be a pot bonus for the Toushinsai 2016 qualifier being held at the Aksys Games booth at EVO 2016! Arc System Works and Aksys Games will be contributing $5000 to the pot! So not only does the winner get a paid trip to Japan and a chance to compete against Japan’s finest, but they will also get a serious chunk of change!
