The annual world tournament dedicated to fighting games, theEVO 2020 it will do. Coronavirus has not stopped the organizers who will now rely on the communities to organize five weeks of online events. Let's see together what this will consist of EVO Online:

This new edition will include exhibition matches and special events dedicated to the titles of the initial line-up: Granblue Fantasy Versus, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Tekken 7, Street Fighter 5, Samurai Shodown, Soul Calibur 6, and Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late [cl-r]. In addition, four more tournaments dedicated to Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, Skullgirls, Them's Fightin 'Herds e Killer Instinct. Here are the scheduled dates:

  • 4 - 5 July
  • 11 - 12 July
  • 18 - 19 July
  • 25 - 26 July
  • July 31 - August 2

The only one absent from the list is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nintendo's title has inexplicably been removed from the event line-up. Was it the fault of the netcode-related problems affecting the title? Or something else? We do not know. What is certain is that EVO will have - at least for this year - to do without one of its flagship tournaments.
