evo-2017EVO is making an exciting return in 2017, and we've now received details about when and where the event will take place.

EVO is one of the biggest fighting game tournaments in the world. It supports events for some of the most popular current fighting games, as well as some older titles. While the full game lineup is yet to be announced, the trailer has shown footage for Guilty Gear Xrd - Revelator, Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Tekken 7 and Mortal Kombat X.

We wouldn't be surprised if other titles make their way to EVO 2017, including Smash Bros Wii U.

In 2016, EVO took place in Las Vegas for the first two days, whilst the final day of the event took place in Mandalay Bay's arena. It was a bit difficult for all fans to attend the entire EVO event, so this year the organizers have put the effort in to accommodate everybody for the 2017 event.

In 2017, the EVO event will take place on July 14 and will end with the final matches happening on July 16. All three days of the event will take place at Mandalay Bay, which is at Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas.

A lot of the information is still to be confirmed, so make sure to check back here and on the EVO 2017 website regularly for more details.
