EVO Japan 2020 Schedule

Street Fighter V will close the event

EVO Japan 2020 is only a few days away, with a few thousand players registered to compete at the annual event across a variety of games. 

This week had a bit of disappointing news when the organizers announced the prizes for the upcoming tournaments. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans were not pleased to discover that the first-place prize would be only a special Nintendo Switch Pro controller. It's understandable since we all know peripherals can't pay for travel expenses.

However, fans are still excited about the high level of competition expected this year. Check out the full tournament schedule below so you don't miss out on the action:
