Top eight will be streamed

As a way of saying thanks for raising over $78,000 in the Evo charity drive for breast cancer research, Evo will be helping out Skullgirls at this year's tournament. Skullgirls will get its own dedicated equipment to host a side tournament during the big event and Evo is even throwing $1,000 into the prize pool.

As a cherry on top, the matches between the top eight finalists will be streamed to the masses. This is absolutely wonderful news since Evo is such a large tournament and streaming out some high-quality matches is sure to recruit new fans. Also, Skullgirls matches are a wonderful thing to watch.
