Evo reveals the fighting roster 2023 for their fighting game competition has been unveiled, with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 making a major comeback and Capcom’s Street Fighter 6 slated to make its debut following its official premiere this June.
The following eight fighting video games will be played in competition at Evo 2023:
Dragon Ball FighterZ, Street Fighter 6, The King of Fighters XV, Mortal Kombat 11: Ultimate, Guilty Gear -Strive-, Tekken 7, Melty Blood: Type Lumina, and lets not forget Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
The biggest surprise among all the games is probably Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3! The video game was first released in 2011, and as of right now, it has been around for more than ten years. It will serve as the “first-annual Evo Throwback Tournament” because it is the oldest game in Evo 2023.
As Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite received mostly unfavorable reviews, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is regarded as the series’ final “good” game. We hope Capcom and Marvel won’t allow the show to conclude in a depressing tone!
EVO Reveals and its Fighting roster All about this game
Of course, some gamers are hopeful that the game’s appearance at Evo would result in the announcement of a sequel, but that could just be wishful thinking.
The Evolution Championship Series, or Evo, started its humble beginnings in arcade competitions in Northern California in 1996. It was formally established in 2002. Sony bought the competition in 2021. After the 2021 event was postponed due to COVID-19 issues, Evo returned in 2022.
Moreover, the inclusion of Street Fighter 6 is less shocking. By the time Evo starts, the game will only be a few months old, but Capcom intends to make a strong first idea on the professional scene. This summer, the game will be played at two significant tournaments and will offer optional in-game commentary from fighting game enthusiasts. Street Fighter 6 will most likely be present at Evo and Capcom Cup X, which will have a very sizable prize pool!
It’s important to note that only the top 6 remain in the top 8 finals. In addition, a $25,000 prize fund will be available for all games. Super Smash Bros. won’t be returning in this version, which is terrible. Until last year, Melee and Ultimate were both represented.
Conclusion by Nexus Of Gaming
After Sony acquired control of Evo, Nintendo might have reconsidered its evolution in that regard. The business announced it would “continue to examine Evo, and other options, as we plan for future online and offline Super Smash Bros. tournament activity” in response to the news.
