EVO is the largest gathering for competitive fighting games, where players put their skills to the test against the best of the best.
EVO is a fighting game tournament where many games from the fighting genre are played professionally. Have you ever heard of the famous Daigo vs Justin Wong fight [Ken vs. Chun Li]? Well, if you have, EVO is where plays like those are made. It is an event that filters out lower tier players and pins the best of the best against one another.

Melee, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Mortal Kombat X, Killer Instinct, and the new Marvel vs. Capcom game. It is also possible that Guilty Gear X Revelator will available this year again.
