Today, EVO organizers announced which games will be part of this year's tournament. The list includes some obvious inclusions as well as some surprises.

Here's the confirmed list:

  • Street Fighter V
  • Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-
  • Super Smash Bros. (Wii U)
  • Super Smash Bros. Melee
  • Injustice 2
  • BlazBlue: Central Fiction
  • Tekken 7
  • The King of Fighters XIV

A ninth game will be selected by way of user poll, which will be affiliated with charity efforts for the Make-a-Wish foundation. Here's the full list of games EVO fans will be able to choose from. The winning game will start with a $10,000 prize pool. You can track the progress of the donations and see what game is in the lead by heading here.

EVO 2017 will take place July 14-16 in Las Vegas. You can find out more about plans for the 2017 event here.


Our Take
Nice to see some surprises in there, like BlazBlue. I also would really like to see Arms make it form the reader poll, if only just to see something brand new end up and admittedly weird end up on the EVO stage.
