“Evo” is short for “Evolution” — a yearly fighting game tournament held in Las Vegas that attracts players from all across the globe to compete for fame, glory, and a few thousand bucks or so. Evolution 2013 is composed of several sub-tournaments, one for each of nine games: Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Street Fighter x Tekken ver. 2013, The King of Fighters XIII, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Persona 4 Arena, and Mortal Kombat.
Unlike many other competitive gaming events, Evo is an open tournament, meaning anyone can enter without having to qualify in advance — which also means that popular games often exceed 1,000 entrants. If you get so excited from watching this weekend’s stream that you immediately pick up a fighting game and start practicing, you too could enter Evo next year! That said, Evo comes at the end of the “Evo tournament season”, called the “Road to Evo”, which consists of a series of major tournaments across North America where well-performing players can earn the chance to be seeded in Evo brackets. A number of tournaments outside the United States are also included in the “Road to Evo International” tournament series.
There will be streams and you can get them right here!
