Evolution 2013 Games Announced


We know it. We love it. We look forward to it every year. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, it is Evolution! Evolution 2013 will take place at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino July 12 through 14. You might be thinking to yourself that it is a bit early to start discussing something so far off, but why wait to get hype? Plus, Mr. Wizard and the crew have been hard at work deciding main games and which community events will be Road to Evo tournaments (meaning they will have Evolution 2013 seed points for top finishers). There are seven announced games this year, and they are as follows:

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012
Street Fighter x Tekken ver. 2013
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
King of Fighters XIII
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
Mortal Kombat
Persona 4 Arena

Sounds like a pretty sick list, right? Most members of the community were expecting a six game announcement, but the Evolution crew is going above and beyond to support as many communities as possible with the game selection this year. These are not the only games that will be part of the main stage, though. There is an eighth and final game yet to be determined by the fans and players.

This year, the Evolution team is doing something different. They are adding an eighth game, and letting the community decide. Not just with votes, but with charity donations. That’s right, the eighth game will be determined by which of the following sixteen games has the most money donated to breast cancer research in its name (more specifically, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation) by the end of January. Donate for the game you would like to see most at Evolution 2013! The sixteen games are:

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core +R
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
SFIII Third Strike, Online Edition
Virtua Fighter 5
Divekick
Melty Blood Actress Again Current
MLP: Fighting is Magic
Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale
