Evo 2016 Opens Its Doors

The biggest fighting game competition is open for registration! Will you be part of the long and passionate history of fighters?

This year, Evo is going to be bigger than anything we have seen before. The fighting game community (FGC) is growing especially with big titles releasing in the genre. Titles like Super Smash Bros, Street Fighter, Killer Instinct and more have grown and created such a competitive atmosphere that leaves new players thirsty to be a part of it.

We already know the line-up prepared for Evo 2016. In case you don’t know, there is Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Mortal Kombat X, Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and even Pokken Tournament! A new chapter in fighting game history is about to unfold.

In case you did not know, Evo 2016 will be taking place on July 15-17 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Players can pay 20$ to sign up and an additional 10$ for every game they wish to compete in. Registration will be open until the 25th of February so make sure you save your spot while you still can!

This year will also be a big upgrade to past Evo tournaments since the finals for the event will be in a separate venue. The finals will be taking place at Mandalay Bay’s Event Center and will have separate tickets available for those who simply wish to assist the final event. This is going to be very hype and it’s great to see the fighting game community growing as fast as it is.

Do you believe the fighting scene will continue to develop into something a lot more commercial? Is there a game missing from the line-up that you would like to see in future Evo tournaments?
