Gamers around the world will have to defeat many a Shoryuken to stand a chance to win the largest and longest running fighting game tournament in the world. The Evolution Championship Series (Evo) has revealed their line up for this year and a donation drive with all proceeds going to a Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The confirmed seven games that will be competed in are:

  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  • Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  • Mortal Kombat 9
  • Street Fighter X Tekken 2013
  • King of Fighters XIII
  • Persona 4 Arena

Eight game donation drive

The eight titles to be competed in are still to be determined by a donation drive. There’s a page set up for the most popular games in previous Facebook polls, players can vote for the game they’d like to be the eight title, by making a small donation on that page. The game will be announced at the end of the month. 

Life’s greatest moments

Evo made a pretty awesome video about last year’s tournament, giving the world just a taste of what it was like. Check out one of life’s greatest moments at 2:30.

I like bacon and games, and occasionally I say something coherent about it. I'm not old or cynical, and I'm not the Dork Knight. I AM SHE-RA! Wait, what?
