The world's largest international fighting game tournament, Evolution (better known as Evo) will feature eight games in its competition lineup, Evo's Joey "Mr Wizard" Cuellar announced on a Twitch TV stream today.
Seven of the eight games have already been decided with the eighth game open for voting via charitable donations. The game's that will be played in the competition include:
1. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
2. Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition Ver. 2012
3. Tekken Tag Tournament 2
4. Mortal Kombat 9
5. Street Fighter X Tekken 2013 Edition
6. The King of Fighters 13
7. Persona 4 Arena
8. Player's Choice
Any game that received more than 500 votes in the Facebook poll from 2012 will be up for a new round of voting for inclusion in the 2013 Evo lineup. In order to prevent cheat votes, those who wish to vote will be able to have their say by making a monetary donation that will go towards breast cancer research. According to Mr Wizard, the communities behind each game will try to raise as much money as they can and all proceeds will go towards breast cancer charities. The community that raises the most money will have their game included in the Evo 2013 lineup.
Fighting game website Shoryuken is playing host to the Evo donations page. The site appears to be down at the time of writing possibly due to server overload.
The version of Street Fighter X Tekken that will be played in the tournament will contain the balancing tweaks introduced in "ver. 2013". Evo 2013 will run from July 12-14, 2013 at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
