The annual eSports extravaganza, Evolution, is back for another year. This year, the highlight has to be the Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournament. With the upgrade having only been out for around a month, it’s really anybody’s game. Hell, it’s really any character’s game. Even El Fuerte has won a major so far. With so many undiscovered things about this title, this one should be hot and exciting. Will one of the five new characters rise to the top?
Another thing to look for is Super Smash Brothers Melee. With almost 1,000 entrants, it almost tied with Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 for the second-most competitors. Smash has never been more popular in America, and with a new game coming on the horizon, it couldn’t be better timed. Plus, Nintendo has been revealed as an official sponsor of the tournament. What could this mean?
Rumor is that there will be some kind of Tekken announcement this weekend. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 might have the lowest number of entrants of any official tournament, but ~250 is still a lot of people.
Unless my memory is super bad, Iron Galaxy, the new developers of Killer Instinct and still the old developers of Divekick, will be having a panel. Will they reveal Cinder as the next character, or did I just do that? Who is the next Divekick character? It’s already been revealed to be a guest character from another game.
