[adsense250itp]The Evo 2014 lineup will include Ultra Street Fighter IV, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Killer Instinct, Injustice: Gods Among Us, King of Fighters XIII and BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, event organizer Shoryuken announced.
Evo 2014 will be held July 11-13 at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.
Shoryuken also said “preliminary talks” are being held with Nintendo to add Super Smash Bros. Melee to the Evo 2014 lineup. Last year, the Nintendo Gamecube title won a fan vote to be included in the event. The fan vote raised more than $225,000 for breast cancer.
However, Nintendo requested Super Smash Bros. Melee be removed from the streaming lineup as the company moved to claim revenue on Let’s Play videos and other content on YouTube and streaming services. Nintendo later reversed this decision due to a negative response from fans.
Evo 2014 will also be home to two events celebrating the 10th anniversary of Super Street Fighter II Turbo. Super Turbo Revival will be running X-MANIA US and a second installment of the Tournament of Legends exhibition.
