Evo 2014 lineup features Ultra Street Fighter IV, Killer Instinct, Injustice, and more

Posted on February 10, 2014 AT 11:35am

The Evo 2014 lineup will feature Ultra Street Fighter IV, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Killer Instinct, Injustice: Gods Among Us, King of Fighters XIII, and BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma.

Unfortunately, the status of Super Smash Bros. Melee’s presence at this year’s Evolution Championship Series remains “undetermined,” though the organizers are currently “engaged in preliminary discussions” with Nintendo.

As you may recall, there was a bit of a debacle over livestreams of Melee during last year’s Evo following Nintendo’s aggressive removal of Let’s Play videos from YouTube, subsequent monetization of them through the insertion of ads, and request that event organizer Shoryuken remove Melee from the 2013 livestream lineup. After a pretty impressive backlash from the community, however, Nintendo caved in and let the livestreams flow.

Evo 2014 kicks off July 11 and lasts until July 13 at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel and Casino. As always, a bevy of livestream options will be available to those who cannot attend, but enjoy watching impossibly skillful players face off against one another.
