As we reported yesterday, there will be a special Pokkén mini-tournament between YouTubers at this year's EGLX. It's been revealed that this event's special "final boss" be - surprising few - ALLISTER!
SetToDestroyX confirmed on Twitter that ALLISTER would be the Pokkén master mentioned in EGLX's earlier tweet. Considering ALLISTER has worked with Nintendo at various events, this announcement isn't particularly surprising. ALLISTER has been one of the best examples of our community's ideals since the beginning, meaning he's one of the best candidates for showing the game to new viewers!
Not only will ALLISTER be taking on the YouTubers competing in the mini-tournament (or at least the YouTuber who wins the tournament), an article by World Gaming also states that fans will be able to face off against ALLISTER on March 10.
Speaking of World Gaming, they're currently running a giveaway for a digital copy of Pokkén Tournament DX plus 2 electronic tickets to EGLX! You can learn more and enter their giveaway here.
It's still unknown which YouTubers will be participating in the mini-tournament at this time.
