EVO is one of the biggest fighting game tournaments in the world, bringing together the best of the best across several different fighting games and franchises. Super Smash Bros. has long since been a staple of the tournament, specifically the latest entry and Melee. EVO 2018 will be taking place this summer from 3rd August to 5th August, and to get some hype moving, the lineup for this year’s competition was just revealed.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Melee will both be making an appearance, returning from last year’s competition. It comes as little surprise, of course, but it’s still exciting to see Nintendo get some representation. There was a fan movement to have ARMS feature, too, but it evidently wasn’t deemed popular enough for a top slot.
