If you were watching EVO this last weekend, you likely did not miss the introduction videos for each title present, but just in case you did, or you just feel like rewatching them, they've all been released online now, courtesy of iplaywinner, we'll have them all linked right below.

The games featured were Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition v2012, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Smash Bros. Melee, King of Fighters 13, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Street Fighter X Tekken v2013, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Persona 4: Arena and Mortal Kombat. We'll start you off right here, with the introduction video for Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition v2012, which covers the history of the title at EVO, and the road that has led the game's scene to where it is now.

All of the videos were created by the amazing Seth Mussey, and feature music from various artists, credited in each respective video.

Hit the jump for the hype videos for the rest of the games.

Next up we have the introductory video for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, viewed by many as the most hype game at EVO, with a video that certainly doesn't let the hype die.

With its grand return to the big scene, Super Smash Bros. Melee turned a lot of heads, and this trailer gives a great view of why the game deserves the big spotlight it has returned to. Top 8 commentator Prog said it best when he said that "This is the game that lived".

King of Fighters 13 had an early showing this year, but it not only warmed up the audience, but rather lighted the entire audience ablaze with hype. To go with these amazing matches, this finely-crafted intro did its job in getting everybody warmed up for what was about to occur.

With Injustice: Gods Among Us being the newest game featured at EVO 2013, it got a lot of attention, and even a new character reveal from Ed Boon himself. To go with this, here's the hype video with footage from various Road to EVO tournaments, all leading up to the glorious event itself.

While the rest of the games didn't get to play out on Sunday, they weren't any less exciting because of it. Street Fighter X Tekken had a strong showing, being the only game to finish on Saturday, and here's a quick snippet of why it's a game that has returned from the dead.

As for the games that finished the first day, they had a lot to show as well. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 brought a lot of surprises and exciting moments, with this video to lead in to all of the madness.

Persona 4: Arena appeared at EVO for the first time this year, and boy, what a showing it was. With all of the craziness present during this Top 8, it almost feels like this hype video didn't manage to do it all justice... Which is saying a lot, for a video of this caliber.

Finally, rounding out the games of EVO 2013, we have the last of the first-day games, being Mortal Kombat. While it had the least amount of entrants this year, staying a 3rd year at EVO is no small feat. Enjoy this video, which just might be the swan song for this particular title at EVO... Although you never know what next year will bring.
