The lineup for 2018’s biggest fighting game event has been revealed!

It’s official: as revealed on tonight’s Evo 2018 announcement show (streamed live on Red Bull Esports’ Twitch channel), we now know the eight titles — not only seven, as initially teased — that will grace the main stage in Las Vegas this year! They are:

  • Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition
  • Tekken 7
  • Injustice 2
  • Dragon Ball FighterZ
  • Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2
  • BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle
  • Super Smash Bros. Melee
  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

The games that will be featured in the Arena finals on Sunday are (order undecided):

  • Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition
  • Tekken 7
  • Dragon Ball FighterZ
  • Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2
  • Super Smash Bros. Melee

A big year for Arc System Works, as Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 returns alongside newcomers Dragon Ball FighterZ and BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle! But the absence of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is a sure disappointment to the Marvel Vs. scene, unfortunately. Stay tuned for updates on side events!

Registration is expected to open in about a week. Keep your eyes on the Evo website, Twitter, and Shoryuken.com for updates! The Evo 2018 World Finals will take place at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 3-5, 2018.
