Evo 2018 played host to multiple tournaments over its three-day run for established games such as Street Fighter 5 and Dragon Ball FighterZ as well as the as-yet-unreleased Soulcalibur 6, which is still in development and set to come out on October 19.

Marie-Laure “Kayane” Norindr, a veteran competitor from France known for, among other things, winning even with her eyes closed, placed fifth in the Soulcalibur 6 tournament. Afterwards, she opened up to Kotaku not only about the game’s competitive future but also her own.
