    Just wondering, but how many people here are planning on going to EVO Japan in January?

    Since it's going to be in a strange land on the other side of the planet, I figured it might be cool to meet up (and maybe even plan group trips to VF arcades too :D :D :D)



    List of who's planning on going so far -- me, @oneida, @Blitzball Champ, @Tricky

    One other thing to mention, though we won't know for sure until they announce the games and the format for each game at EVO Japan, but there is a good chance that VF in EVO Japan (If they actually do have VF) could be a TEAM tournament, since Japan doesnt really like singles tournaments, and espescially for VF, we hardly ever see Japanese singles VF tournament format

    Hey man, I crashed out after exhausting myself from raging in GG Revelator, and woke up to the sounds of FinestKO's twitch stream while he was playing Yakuza 0.

    Couldnt go back to sleep afterwards (and now I'm at work feeling the effects)

    While I'm very much looking forward to my trip to Japan, I will likely only attend EVO Japan if there is a VF tournament. It doesn't have to be official, a side tournament would suffice just so long as something VF related is organized for the event.

    Regardless, I would be interested in meeting up and going to arcades.

    I'm going to Japan next month for the first time but I'm most certainly going to EVO Japan also.

    Book your flights/lodging!

    EVO Japan dates announced. Jan 26-28th @ Akihabara UDX.

    They also announced a pre-event May 20-21 at the same place. I leave Tokyo May 15th :( but hopefully I can stay for an extra week.

    ^no idea. I'll look into it when I get there. Ive heard everything is easy to navigate as an English speaker including hotels. Especially in the main touristy areas like Shinjuku or Shibuya where Im staying. Renzo told me its a good idea to use AirBnB so may give that a try come January.
