Nine games will grace the main stage this year, including multiple new titles!
The main stage games for Evo 2019 have been officially unveiled tonight on the Evo 2019 reveal show livestream — and the games are a combination of expected favorites and some new (and not-so-new) surprises:
- Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition
- Dragon Ball FighterZ
- Tekken 7
- BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle
- Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st]
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
- SoulCalibur VI
- Mortal Kombat 11
- Samurai Shodown
While some games are heavily-expected returns (like Street Fighter V and Tekken 7), a notable few are welcome newcomers, such as the upcoming Samurai Shodown and the much-loved Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st]. Mr. Wizard and MarkMan have also pledged that side events will receive even more spotlight at Evo 2019, continuing the trend from last year in giving other communities more spotlight, even if their favorite game isn’t on the main stage.
The four titles that will be in the arena for finals on Sunday will be (order yet to be confirmed) Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Tekken 7, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Registration for Evo 2019 is opening tonight at 7:30 PM PT; head over to the Evo main website to sign up and get your tickets!
Evo 2019 will take place on August 2-4 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
