According to the feed, if you plan on attending as a group or bring along some friends, you can purchase up to four tickets at a time.
If you’re still looking to register to participate in the tournament, you’re fresh out of luck because it ended today.
If, however, you’re part of the media and you want to get in on the action by snapping photos and taking video, you can do so by registering over on the Media Registration site. You’ll only have up until January 15th to finalize your media credentials and get your team in order if you plan on visiting the EVO Japan tournament, live and in person.
This is the first time that EVO has ventured outside of North America in an official capacity, so it’s uncharted territory. The e-sports league has had to make some changes, cleaning up its image, removing the thuggery, tone-policing the lingo, and even censoring some of the hot thighs and butts of the 3D characters because Disney doesn’t want little girls and boys (or straight men) to see thickness on ESPN.
Anyway, you can look for EVO Japan to get underway starting at the end of January in 2018.
