Joey “Mr. Wizard” Cuellar just dropped some pretty big news on the Wakeup SRK Live podcast regarding this year’s Evolution tournament. While many were surprised to hear the event would feature eight official titles, the lineup will now be expanded to nine with the inclusion of NetherRealm Studio’s latest fighter, Injustice: Gods Among Us. Fans were upset when the title didn’t receive a nod from the EVO 2013 organizers when the tournament’s roster was first revealed, but now they will get a chance to see it take part in the biggest fighting game tournament in the world.
Wizard also mentioned that top Injustice placers at the remaining Road to EVO events (UFGT9, CEO 2013) will receive the same seeding points as finalists in the other official titles. They will also be allowing stage interactables and transitions, and testers will not be barred from competition.
