It's that time of the year again: EVOlution, the biggest fighting game tournament in the world. After a successful debut in Japan, it is time for Mr. Wiz to announce the lineup for EVO classic. With some major excitement around games such as Dragonball FighterZ and Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, how is the NRS scene going to be represented this year on the main stage?
WITH MORTAL KOMBAT ARMAGEDDON! No, Injustice 2 is what is bringing us to EVOlution this year. With the SonicFox era ending last year giving way to the Age of the Dragon, things should be interesting. EVO is going to be held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas from August 3-5. If you plan on going, you have 6 months to prepare, so get training!

Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator 2 (receiving a new balance patch in March)
