Tom Cannon: Injustice and Playstation All-Stars were both very close to making it to this year's Evolution Evolution's co-founder, Tom Cannon recently did an interview over on GameSpot. He discusses changes to the tournaments format, various games that almost made it to this years event, how they plan to manage all eight games, Smash Bros, Mortal Kombat, Injustice and more.


Here's an excerpt.

Mortal Kombat was chosen, but not Injustice: Gods Among Us, which is scheduled to come out next year. Why this decision? Is it because the game hasn't even been released yet? Is there any chance it could make it's way into the lineup?

The April release date of Injustice is just two months away from EVO, which is a very short amount of time to draw out a game’s full potential. Injustice is one of the games which made the cut for the donation drive, so if fighting games fans want to see it in official tournament lineup they can work toward raising money for the Breast Cancer Research Fund on its behalf.

Although you've always had several Capcom titles, with so many fighting games out now, did that make it difficult at all to bring back SFxT again?

Not at all. Street Fighter X Tekken has had a very rocky start, but I think it showed potential in at the recent Capcom 25th Anniversary tournament. Capcom also has a great track record of steadily improving their fighting games with each subsequent revision and we expect Street Fighter X Tekken v2013 to be no exception.

Which game came the closest to making the final list?

Injustice and Playstation All-Stars were both very close to making it.
