As the biggest fighting game tournament in the world, Evolution regularly draws huge numbers of competitors from all across the globe, and this year’s event will be no different. News has been circulating recently regarding some of the international competition heading to the United States from Japan, Korea, and Sweden, the first of which you can find here in convenient spreadsheets courtesy of OCV with translations by USD.
CafeId’s Kensouzzang recently tweeted out that he and a large group from their local Korean scene will also be in attendance, including players such as MadKOF, Poongko, Knee, BigDanmul, Nin, Verna, and Millionz. These competitors hail from a wide variety of games (King of Fighters, Street Fighter, Tekken) and are poised to make waves in every bracket they step into. Will MadKOF repeat as King of Fighters XIII champion?

Also, after a bit of back and forth, it appears that DreamHack themselves will be sponsoring the champion of the Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012 tournament at their Summer 2013 event. Popi, who defeated Infiltration with his dominant Cammy, is set to travel to EVO and prove his win wasn’t a fluke. This news comes from Gamespot’s Rod “Slasher” Breslau.
