EVO 2011 Trailer and Announcements, Round 1!

By on June 11, 2011 at 6:20 pm

Without further ado, here is  the EVO 2011 trailer!

EVO has always been more than just a tournament.  It’s a gathering of the world wide fighting game community and a great place to meet new friends or catch up with old ones who share the same passion for gaming.  This year we are thrilled to double-down on the community aspect of EVO by providing unique content catered to our attendees.

Industry and Community Panel
Throughout the weekend, we will host a series of panels chaired by fighting game industry veterans and some of the leaders in the fighting game community, including developers of tomorrow’s most anticipated fighting games like SF3 Third Strike Online Edition and Skullgirls.  We have a lot more in store in this department, so stay tuned over the coming weeks for more panel announcements.  Priority seating for these events will go to registered EVO attendees, so register today if you haven’t already done so!

Exhibition Tournaments
Of course we will have special exhibition tournaments again this year. With a new release of Marvel, it’s only fitting that we once again pit the the east coast vs. west coast in a regional team exhibition for bragging rights in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. We will also host an invite-only SF3 Third Strike Grandmaster Challenge, with past legends of the game squaring off in a single elimination tournament.

IPlayWinner X Team Sp00ky Streaming
Without a doubt, Sp00ky has been the hardest working man in the business this year. We are happy to welcome both Sp00ky and IPlayWinner on board to host the 2011 stream.

We’re just getting started with the announcements. We’ll unveil more soon, but to be sure you do not want to miss this EVO.
