EVO 2k13 Lineup Announced

EVO 2k13’s game lineup has been announced via Wakeup SRK. Expect to see:

  • Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
  • Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  • Mortal Kombat 9
  • Street Fighter x Tekken v2013
  • King of Fights XIII
  • Persona 4 Arena
  • Player’s Choice (chosen via a poll on SRK’s Facebook page)

Soul Calibur V is expectedly nowhere in sight, having died a slow death following EVO 2k12. Singapore performed admirably at the game last year, with Jovian ‘DM MCZ Shen Chan’ Chan taking 2nd place behind Japan’s Shining Decopon. Fellow DM MCZ teammate and Soul Calibur enfant terrible Raymus ‘Shen Yuan’ Chang, initially pipped to duke it out for first place with Shen Chan, fell prematurely to finish in the Top 32.

Even with our Soul Calibur double dragons out of the running, Singapore may have more hopes than just Xian alone this year. The Team Desperation Move and Mad Catz Inc sponsored player might be joined at EVO 2k13 by fellow Singaporeans currently competing against him in the country’s latest fighting game league – the Singapore E-Sports League’s A League.

The winner of this first series of matches will head over to compete at Final Round in Atlanta, USA, and with more series planned for the rest of the year, there might just be a ticket to EVO for the overall champ.
