While the Evolution Championship Series provides us a look at the best fighting game players in the world on a regular basis, some news just broke that is sure to crank the heat up even higher at this year’s event.

According to community pillar Seth Killian, all five of Japan’s fighting game gods will be in attendance at Evo 2014. For those of you keeping score at home, that means Mad Catz’ Daigo Umehara and Tokido, sako of Team HORI, Nuki, and Haitani are set to provide their considerable talent to the action. Though some are proficient at multiple games, their presence is sure to have a significant impact on the Ultra Street Fighter IV competition.

So, let us hear it: how excited are you that this is going down? Feel free to jump into the comments and let us know how you think these legends will fare at Evo 2014.
