Pokken Tournament has just missed out its inclusion to Evo 2017 to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the end of the “competition”.
The Wii U title was one of several games nominated for the final spot at Evo 2017. Had it won, Pokken Tournament would have been featured alongside Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U at Evo 2017.
There are though good news to report after the whole nomination-thing. With the vote tying into charities, Pokken Tournament raised nearly $67,000, with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 generating the most money with a little over $71,000. Evo is also pledging $10,000 in order to support Pokken Tournament with individual tournaments throughout the rest of the year.
