The Evolution Championship Series 2020 games lineup has been announced and it includes a surprise from the past.
The lineup was announced live on Twitter along with the dates that the world’s biggest fighting game tournament will be held this year. Evo 2020 will be between July 31 and August 2nd, 2020.
As to the lineup, it includes many of the fighting games the tournament usually hosts. But a special surprise this year is the return of Marvel vs. Capcom 2, which will be in the lineup to celebrate the game’s 20th anniversary.
Marvel vs. Capcom 2 will have a “20urnament of champions,” which will be an eight-player invitational tournament featuring the game’s best players of all-time. The last time Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was included in the lineup was Evo 2010, when it was won by Justin Wong, securing his seventh tournament win with the game.
As you can see, two fighting games not included in this year’s lineup after being part of Evo 2019 are BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle and Mortal Kombat 11.
