EVO 2017 Championship lineup revealed

We could get Arms, y’all

The EVO Championship is always the hypest weekend for fighting games and this year’s iteration of the tournament is going to be no different. Announced on a live stream, this year’s lineup has some pretty cool inclusions. Along with the eight announced titles, there will be a ninth game up for a player vote. For two weeks, donations can be made to Generosity for charity and the game with the most money will not only be played on the final day of the tournament, but will include a $10,000 cash prize for the winner. 

What’s up for a vote? Arms, Windjammers, Nidhogg, Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Killer Instinct, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Pokken Tournament, Skullgirls, or Mortal Kombat X. So if you’re not pleased with the announced line-up, maybe your favorite game will make it in? I’m personally vying for Arms or Windjammers myself just to get something totally off the wall. As for the rest of the tourney, I’m sure BlazBlue and Injustice 2 are going to be hype. 

Here’s the full EVO 2017 line-up with the five titles ending on Sunday labeled below: 

  • Street Fighter V (Sunday Finals) 
  • Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2
  • Super Smash Bros. Wii U (Sunday Finals)
  • Super Smash Bros. Melee
  • Injustice 2
  • BlazBlue: Central Fiction (Sunday Finals) 
  • Tekken 7 (Sunday Finals)
  • King of Fighters XIV
  • Fan Voted Game  (Sunday Finals)
