SNKPlaymore took time until announcing its first playable event in Japan, but for the local fans in the country-- as well as stream monsters worldwide-- it'll certainly be worth the wait.
According to SNKPlaymore's press release, 24 characters will be playable at the event and the company will be giving out a bunch of novelty items to early visitors.
This event won't be just for the Tokyo locals though. SNKPlaymore will be streaming gameplay footage from the show on its new Twitch channel, so be sure to check them out between 6PM to 9PM JST. Below are time zones for reference.
