Evo 2017 takes place in July, but Pokken Tournament will not be a part of it. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 won the final slot at this year’s Evo event, courtesy of a 9th game player’s choice charity drive that recently came to a close. Pokken Tournament lost to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 by only $4,000, with the former accumulating $67,000 and the latter obtaining over $71,000. However, there is good news to share. The effort to get the game at this year’s Evo impressed the Evo staff so much that they have announced that they will be committing $10,000 to support tournaments for Pokken Tournament in 2017. Smash Bros. Melee and Smash Bros. Wii U will still be at Evo 2017, as previously announced.
