Atlus Adds $10,000 To EVO Tournament Prize Pool

In celebration of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’s entry into the prestigious EVO fighting game tournament, Atlus has added $10,000 dollars to the event’s already impressive prize pool. In addition to all of that cold hard cash, Atlus will also be bringing some of its other hit titles along for the ride. Including demos of the upcoming Persona 4: Dancing All Night and competitive rounds of their hit puzzle game Catherine.


As for why the company is bringing a demo of a rhythm game to one of the world’s biggest fighting game events, Atlus stated in a recent press release that Dancing All Night requires the same sort of quick wits and fast moves that fighting games often require and would go on to state that the game would be a good way for players to wind down between rounds of intense one-on-one combat.

EVO, which runs from July 17-19th in Las Vegas, Nevada, will feature some of gaming’s best fighting games, including the likes of Ultra Street Fighter IV, Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Guilty Gear Xrd: SIGN, Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat X, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Super Smash Bros. 4 for Wii U and Melee, and Tekken 7. EVO is open to all comers and will offer players and spectators alike the chance to see some of the world’s best duke it out for cash and prizes.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
