Strive, street fighter, tekkenand The king of fighters will fill the finals on Sunday

The Evolution Championship Series, aka Evo, has released its final entry tally. The final numbers for each match, as well as the four that will qualify for the Evo 2022 Arena Finals on Sunday, are now locked in.

Registration closed last weekwith nine games in the main Evo 2022 lineup: Street Fighter V, Guilty Equipment Effort, Mortal Kombat 11, Tekken 7, The King of Fighters XV, Melty Blood Type Lumina, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Granblue Fantasy Versus, and Skullgirls.

In the final countdown, Guilty Equipment Effort took first place at Evo 2022. The latest entry in Arc System Works’ fighting game series has garnered 2,161 registered fighters.

Join Strive for Sunday’s finals are two fairly presumptive matches, Street Fighter V and Tekken 7. The last king of fighters takes fourth place, with 1,014 participants registered to compete.

While these four will be featured in the Arena Finals, all nine games are part of the Evo 2022 Main Stage lineup. Of course, if you prefer some of the more specialized and rare tournaments, there are always side events. All of They fight against the herds and soulcalibur at Katherine can usually find a place to compete.

The real king of fighters

Evo 2022 will be a big year for Evo as it returns under new ownership. While there was Evo Online, this will be the first in-person Evo since the tournament series was jointly acquired by Sony and RTS.

So far, that hasn’t meant that much has changed. Super Smash Bros. won’t be part of the main line of games this year, although the statement reads as if it were Nintendo’s choice.

Street Fighter 6 will however be exposed and open to competitors to test them. I personally hope there is a way to catch show matches or something over the weekend. We can probably expect some fighting game news this weekend as well, as tradition dictates.

Evo 2022 will take place August 5-7 at the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas.
