The lineup for EVO 2018 has been announced, which comprises eight different games, some of which may be unexpected, especially for casual viewers. The roster was confirmed during a Twitch event hosted by two top names at EVO, “MrWizard” and “MarkMan.”
The eight games are as follows: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition , Tekken 7 , Super Smash Bros. for Wii U , Super Smash Bros. Melee , BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle , Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 , Injustice 2 , and Dragon Ball FighterZ .
The most notable aspects of this lineup are of course, the continued endurance of Melee , the debut of Cross Tag Battle despite its late release date (June, and EVO starts in early August), and the exclusion of Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite . The debut of Dragon Ball FighterZ is much less of a surprise due to the game’s early success.
EVO 2018 will be taking place on August 3-5, and will be held at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
