The biggest fighting game tournament in the world is without a doubt EVO, or Evolution Championship Series. This year things are a little different as Super Smash Bros. has managed to knock off long standing Street Fighter games as the headlining tournament.

The news has come from the President of Evo, Joey Cuellar who recently took to Twitter to reveal the Evo 2019 finals order. According to Cuellar, on Friday Evo participants will see Soulcalibur VI finals be played out, on Saturday we will get Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st], Dragon Ball FighterZ, Samurai Shodown, and Mortal Kombat 11. Sunday will be BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, Street Fighter V, Tekken 7 and finally Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

This is quite unprecedented as the newest Street Fighter game usually holds the headlining spot at Evo, but this year Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's overwhelming popularity has swooped in and dethroned the long-running fighter. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was also the most registered title at this years Evo, check out more on that here. If you didn't know, Super Smash Bros. Melee was dropped from this years Evo competition, find out why here. Evo 2019 will be held in Las Vegas on August 2nd.
