First and foremost, we would like to apologize for the delayed updates since our initial EVO Japan 2019 announcement.

In order for us to improve the quality of our event, especially compared to the last one, we have been doing our best to enrich the tournament and attendee experience. This includes planning for prize money, while balancing interests from all parties involved, especially the specific game communities, game developers, publishers and government officials.

With an amazing amount of support and cooperation from Fukuoka City, our goal is to facilitate an event that will appease to participants, stakeholders and everyone involved.

Please look forward to more announcements in the near future for EVO Japan 2019, including more main event titles and community side-tournaments.
