This weekend is the much anticipated EVO Championship series. Held every year, this competition gathers all of the best fighting game players to battle for prizes and bragging rights. If you are a fan of fighting games, hopefully you are heading there (let us know in the comments if you are!). However, if you can't make it, you can still check out the stream of the event, brought to you by iPlayWinner x Team Spooky. Details of the stream schedule can be found here.
EVO has also released a schedule of panels, compiled by SRK, that will take part over the weekend. From interviewing Daigo "The Beast" Umehara to Capcom's discussing their successful fighting game franchises, these panels are sure to be very informative and entertaining. Destructoid will be on location to bring you as much coverage from these as we can!
Anyway, check below for the official press release from the guys at EVO and GET HYPED!
