Evolution 2013 Game Lineup Announced!

by Rip

MrWizard just announced the Evolution 2013 lineup on WakeupSRK. He said that running six games made Evo2012 run too late last year, so… with that being said, this year there will be 8 games! Thats ridiculous and I love it lol. To try to space it out, they’re moving some of the finals to Saturday so for Sunday Finals there will only be five games. The list of games for Evolution 2013 is as follows:

- Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
- Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition 2012
- Tekken Tag Tournament 2
- Mortal Kombat 9
- Street Fighter x Tekken v2013 – 1 vs 1 (Wiz has new info on Gems, so no announcement about new rules for it)
- King of Fighters XIII
- Persona 4:Arena
- ??? PLAYERS CHOICE ???

More info on Players Choice and the event itself after the jump:

by Rip

Wow, looks like NetherRealms put a lot of time into designing Rain. Its like they gave him a bit of every good character except still kept him unique. His XRAY looks pretty sick as well. Check it out:
