Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat X, Tekken and Smash Bros. are joined by a new face this year.

The main EVO 2016 line-up was announced in a livestream today.

Street Fighter 5, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Mortal Kombat X, Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom will be showcased during the Sunday finals.

Super Smash Bros. Wii U, Killer Instinct and Pokken Tournament will also feature.

There are likely to be a number of smaller titles at the show for more casual or exhibition play, also.

EVO 2016 runs July 15 through 17 at the Las vegas Convention centre. Should be good; it always is.
