Mortal Kombat Returns to Evo Championship Series 2013!

01/09/2013 :: Posted at 10:46 AM by Mick-Lucifer
Mortal Kombat Returns to the Evo Championships for a Third Time!

The speculation can officially come to an end! Third time will be the charm for Mortal Kombat when it returns to the Evo Championship Series in 2013!

Announced on the WakeUpSRK live stream; Mortal Kombat joins an expanded line-up of seven confirmed games for this year's super-sized Evo. Recognizing the success of the game in 2012, MrWizard acknowledged the changing perception of MK as a game of the world -- not just the US!

An eighth game will be selected from a list of seventeen candidates via a charity drive to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The game with the most money donated will be included in the Evo2013 line-up. Among the list is NetherRealm Studios' current fighting game project, the much anticipated Injustice: Gods Among Us.

The current confirmed list of 2013 Evo titles is:

  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  • Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  • Mortal Kombat 9
  • Street Fighter X Tekken 2013
  • King of Fighters XIII
  • Persona 4 Arena

The Road to Evo 2012 Begins!

The Road to Evo will take on a different significance in 2013. Unlike last year's exciting series, feed tournaments will no longer offer seeding points to top ranking participants.

Instead, tournament organizers will use top sixteen results to allocate Evo Championship seeding in July, offering guaranteed seeds to the top sixteen in an orientation of their deciding. Organizers cite a desire to eliminate the travel advantage from the tour, emphasizing skill of the players. Evo has so far partnered with four United States tournaments.

    2013 "Road to Evo" Tournament Line-Up:
  • SoCal Regionals
  • NorCal Regionals 11
  • Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament 9
  • CEO 2013

"Perfect Legend" Carl White will no doubt be a much talked about figure in the Road to Evo. The reigning Evo World Champion wields a perfect record as two-time Mortal Kombat champion [2011, 2012]. The World Championship event will take place July 12-14 at the Paris Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas.
