I'm not even THAT far into fighting games in terms of skill and time investment. I even came upon this whole Evo event on the final day with the final Smash round and all... But thanks to a friend of mine, I've learned that this Evo may very well be one of the hypest Evo events known to toastkind...
- E. Honda, Lucia, and Poison coming to Street Fighter 5.
- New character revealed in Granblu Fantasy Vs
- New Tekken 7 season(?) with a new character, LEEEEERRROOOYYYY Smith.
- New Samurai Showdown season with new characters and mechanics
- New Soul Calibur season with new characters and mechanics
- Samsho character crossing into Soul Calibur
- New BLazblu Crosstag Battle characters from SK, RWBY, and Akatsuki Blitztank, and MORE.
- Janemba and Gogeta coming to Dragonball FighterZ
- NEW Uniel game
- NEW Guilty Gear 2020
-NEW KING OF FIGHTERS 15 NOW IN DEVELOPMENT
Of course not all of these things showed up on evo all at once (I think it was a bit more spread out) but ME learning all of this in the span of one night was... NOT HEALTHY.
