Nintendo Fans and Fighting Game Pros Invited to Join the Pokkén Tournament DX Academy at EVO
Participants Have the Chance to Win a Nintendo Switch System
July 12, 2017
EVO is one of the world’s largest events for fighting game fans and professional competitors all over the world. Over three days in Las Vegas, EVO hosts a variety of tournaments and exhibitions for the community to showcase the love and universal appeal of competitive video games.
This year, Nintendo is attending the event with a booth space featuring playable kiosks for the Pokkén Tournament DX fighting game, which stars popular Pokémon characters and launches for the Nintendo Switch console on Sept. 22. During EVO, Nintendo will be playfully “recruiting” people to join the virtual Pokkén Tournament DX Academy, which provides a direct line of communication between Nintendo and the Pokkén Tournament DX players.
By signing up for the Academy, members will receive exclusive tips and tricks directly from Nintendo and the game’s development team, as well as invitations to a special Nintendo event at PAX West in Seattle.
EVO will feature visually engaging posters promoting the Academy, as well as a sign-up sheet at Nintendo’s booth. Fans and pro players who sign up will be entered into an on-site drawing for the chance to win a Nintendo Switch system and the Pokkén Tournament DX game when it launches on Sept. 22.
Pro fighting game players, Nintendo and fighting game fans.
