Yesterday, February 4th, the Evolution Championship Series announced the official games lineup for Evo 2020 in its reveal show on Twitch.
The official games lineup will be the following:
- DRAGON BALL FighterZ (PS4)
- Granblue Fantasy Versus (PS4)
- Samurai Shodown (PS4)
- Soulcalibur VI (PS4)
- Street Fighter V: Champion Edition (PS4)
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch)
- Tekken 7 (PS4)
- Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] (PS4)
This year’s Evo will also host a special invitational tournament for Marvel Vs Capcom 2 (Dreamcast). A celebration of Marvel vs. Capcom 2’s 20th anniversary, the “20urnament of Champions” will feature a total of eight players, including the four Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Evo title holders from past Evo tournaments.
The most notable snub in this lineup would be Mortal Kombat 11 since it was there last year with over 1500 entrants where our very own Ryan ‘Big D’ placed 9th. The other would be Super Smash Bros. Melee.
Evo 2020 will take place at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas July 31 – August 2, 2020. Registration for the event is now open.
