Smash Bros. Ultimate is gonna headline Evo this year

  • Written by Destructoid

Melee didn't make the final roster of Evo 2019 games, but that doesn't mean Super Smash Bros. will take a backseat. Actually, it'll nab the tournament's most visible spot.

The president of Evo, Joey Cuellar, tweeted today that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will headline Evo 2019. It's a monumental change from the norm. The most popular Street Fighter game typically headlines Evo, which has been the tradition (as far as I can tell) all the way back to 2007; in 2006, Dead or Alive 4 seemingly took the top billing.

Here's the order we can expect from Evo 2019, although exact times aren't yet provided: The Soulcalibur VI finals will be on Friday; the Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st]Dragon Ball FighterZSamurai Shodown, and Mortal Kombat 11 finals are on Saturday; and the BlazBlue: Cross Tag BattleStreet Fighter VTekken 7, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate finals are on Sunday. All of this takes place in Las Vegas on the weekend of August 2.
