Evo 2015’s initial lineup has been announced.


This year’s Evo Championship Series will be held from July 17 through 19 in Las Vegas.

The 2015 line-up consists of usual suspects like the latest version of Capcom’s two big fighters, but also two variations of Smash Bros., fresh off the release of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and Nintendo’s growing acceptance of the eSports scene. Guilty Gear is making a return, too, and Killer Instinct has been welcomed back for a second year.

Although it’s subject to change and additions, here’s the announced line-up:

  • Ultra Street Fighter 4
  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  • Super Smash Bros. Wii U
  • Super Smash Bros. Melee
  • Guilty Gear Xrd Sign
  • Killer Instinct
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Persona 4 Arena Ultimax
  • Tekken 7 (arcade)
