August 9th, 2018

Evo hype is still at a high as the events that took place this past weekend are only just getting started. A bunch of new updates and some highlight moments will be talked about this episode. Crashtag returns from the fun filled weekend in Vegas as Mezza sulks a little for not being there. A lot of new updates came forth as the Evo reveals gave us dozens of stages for Smash 4 Ultimate and five new characters. Ranging from Donkey Kong Country to Castlevania.

Namco lights up the room with returning characters Anna and Lei but they have guess star Negan from “The Walking Dead” appear as well. SnK does not fall short as they announced Terry GirlGard and she hits hard. Arika announces Flex’s new character Terry Bogard! Namco again with another reveal but this time for Soul Calibur 6. Astaroth and Seong Mi Na return and look very clean. Base Goku & Vegeta are here now but wait Cooler is here to give some trouble as he announced to be apart of the cast.

Arcsys gives us the awaited BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle characters Nine, Yuzuriha, Izayoi & More. Capcom takes the show with their G & sagat release/trailer and boy does the DoubleTap team feel some way about this. No randoms in the FGC or Plug and Play as the team gets a travel segment and Focus Attack from this past weekend evo. In the mod highlights we get a nice Gogeta SSJ4 surprise from Ultlma647.
