One of the most popular fighting game tournaments in the world has begun: EVO 2010 IS HERE! The best fighters from around the world compete in the best fighting game franchises ever to grace consoles and arcades, and today marks the first day of the battle for survival and supremacy! For this year, the tourney takes place at Caesar's Palace over at grand Las Vegas, and having seen the place myself years ago, I can say it's a suitable location that's big enough to hold players from all corners ready to make mince meat of each other in the fighting world! You got all kinds of individuals gathered together with their controllers and fight sticks, to an event so big that it's actually sponsored by the big video game companies like Capcom and Bandai Namco! With that in mind, you can expect the big new fighting games like Super Street Fighter IV, Tatsunoko Vs Capcom, and Tekken 6 to appear, as well as classic fighting titles like Marvel Vs Capcom 2 and Melty Blood! Later on in the next few days, there'll be plenty more brawls... and a sneak peek of the much anticipated Marvel Vs Capcom 3!
Anyone unfamiliar with the championship series should know that this tournament has gone on for a long time, and it's been the home to some of the best and notorious combo machine players out there, including the beast himself, Daigo Umehara! Check out this video trailer of the 2004 EVO tournament DVD to get a feel of things:
Now, check out why it can get awesome at some moments. Here's footage of Daigo performing one of the most AWESOME comebacks in fighting game history, and as a fighter, I gotta tell you... it is just INSANE!
The Tournament takes place this weekend from July 9- 11! If you want to catch the action, check out the live stream over at the official site!
