The EVO Championship Series will return to Las Vegas this summer, and the team has finally announced the nine titles that will take to the main stage for the biggest fighting game tournament of the year, and a highlight of the competitive gaming calendar.
While many expected sluggers will be making their welcome return, such as Capcom's Street Fighter V: Championship Edition, Bandai Namco's Tekken 7 and Dragon Ball FighterZ, and Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, arguably the biggest news concerns the return of the prodigal son. Yes, Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes will once again be making its presence felt on the main stage.
MvC 2 has long been a beloved title on the competitive circuit, and can still bring the hype in a tournament environment. EVO 2020's special "Tournament of Champions" on the classic 2000-era fighter will see eight of the best players of all time compete for a hefty prize pot, and could see the old-school fighter stealing the entire show.
