EVO 2012 lineup revealed

Posted by: Jeremy at 1/12/2012 8:54 AM
The EVO Championships are scheduled to kick off this coming July and the tournament organizers have unveiled the official line-up of titles being included this year. Fans and competitors alike can look forward to some heated action in:
  • Street Fighter X Tekken
  • Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Version 2012
  • Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3
  • Soul Calibur 5
  • King of Fighters 13
  • Mortal Kombat 9
I find it a little interesting that they have included 2 titles that haven’t even been released, which should make the competition even fiercer since everyone will have the same amount of time to train on those games.

The “Road to EVO” has also been unveiled and will blaze a path all across the United States and Canada over the next 6 months. Look for competitions in your area(s) with the following events:
  • Apex Tournament Series, New Brunswick, New Jersey Jan 6-8
  • Winter Brawl, Philadelphia, PA Feb 18-19
  • OzHadou Nationals X, Sydney, Australia Feb 17-19
