I have to apologize for forgetting about EVO – it’s only the world’s greatest tournament for fighting games out there – but better late than never so here we go. If you want to catch the tournament live, you can click here. A schedule is here, where they will end the night with some Street Fighter and players will get a look at Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. I can partially say that I forgot about the tournament as it’s pretty console heavy but seeing how every arcade fighter out there is being brought to consoles, it’s not terribly surprising. Too bad KOFXIII won’t be there as that comes out tomorrow in Japan, that certainly would have made for a nice surprise to players there, even if most of them prefer Street Fighter and Tekken.
So Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is being promoted for use with arcade sticks yet there is no actual arcade version of the game in sight. Oh well.
Arcade machines weren’t completely absent from EVO .
