Tournament to be held in Las Vegas Convention Center.
During a livestream yesterday, EVO co-founder Joey Cuellar announced the lineup of games for this year's undoubtedly biggest fighting game tournament. It's an interesting mix of new titles and EVO mainstays, containing 'Street Fighter V', 'Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator', 'Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3', 'Super Smash Bros. Melee', 'Super Smash Bros. for Wii U', 'Pokkén Tournament', 'Killer Instinct', 'Mortal Kombat X', and 'Tekken 7: Fated Retribution'.
There are some odd picks there, for sure. 'UMvC3' hasn't been terribly popular with the fighting game community in years, and 'Pokkén Tournament' seems like a particularly left-field choice considering it's a new IP that's completely untested right now, but overall, it's a solid lineup that should lead to an exciting tournament when EVO 2016 kicks off on July 15th at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
