The Evolution Championship Series is without question the pinnacle of fighting game community. The world’s biggest fighting game tournament is set to return July 17th- 19th. The tournament will be held in Bally’s/ Paris Las Vegas this year, moving away from last year’s location at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
You can watch the first trailer for the event below.
Other than the location, little is known about the tourney itself. Players can speculate some of the games that will be in attendance, but no solid list stands for now. Likely fighting games to be represented are Ultra Street Fighter 4, the world’s most popular fighting game, Mortal Kombat X, set to release two months before the event, Tekken 7, if it manages to release before EVO, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and the newest Super Smash Bros.
Other games that could possibly be represented are Guilty Gear Xrd Sign, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Under Night in-Birth exe: Late, Skullgirls, Killer Instinct, Blazgreen (Kappa), King of Fighters XIII and Super Smash Bros Melee, if enough players show their interest.
