Skullgirls has been confirmed for an Evo 2013 side tournament slate, as a thank you to the game’s fans who amassed a great sum of money for charity. Well played fans, well played.
The entire charity drive raised $225,744 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Super Smash Bros. Melee raised the most at $94,683.
As a big thank you, the Evo organisers have granted Skullgirls its own side tourney at the event. Evo is even providing dedicated stands for the game, throwing a prize purse of $1000 to the winner and will live-stream the final ‘top 8’ bouts.
Evo 2013 will take place on the weekend of July 12th and registrations are now open.
