    Remember when ARMS was first shown off and people said #ARMS4EVO as a joke… hehehe

      Well it’s ARMS Japan rather than the actual EVO, but yeah still applies.

      As you saw by EVO2017, Japanese players aren’t top-tier at Smash…. so, maybe that’s why?

        Jaan doesn’t follow the melee scene like America does (good for them on their part, honestly)

      Melee is dead in Japan. Thats why.

    Glad to hear. I love ARMS and hope the game picks up steam competitively. In the states people already want to ignore it because it’s not a traditional type of fighting game

    Melee is dead.
