The full lineup for Evo 2023 has been revealed with Capcom’s Street Fighter 6 set to make its debut at the event. Evo will once again return to Las Vegas this August and host arguably the biggest fighting game tournament in the world, usually drawing the attention of millions of viewers. Alongside Street Fighter 6 will be regulars like Mortal Kombat 11 and Tekken 7, however, a throwback tournament is also planned with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
A total of eight fighting games will be featured at Evo 2023 this year, though it seems like Street Fighter 6 will be headlining the event. The anticipated sixth mainline entry in the Street Fighter franchise is set to launch this June so it will be fresh on everyone’s minds at Evo. The biggest surprise is the return of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, which was once one of the event’s most popular fighting games. All featured games will once again be played on PS4.
