The Make-A-Wish Foundation EVO 2017 charity drive to determine the player's choice game has concluded. At this time, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has raised the most money totaling


It was a very close race that came down to the wire. Pokken Tournament and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 were neck-and-neck throughout the entirety of the donation drive, and the end result was a close one.

At this time, we are waiting on confirmation from the EVO staff whether or not UMvC3 will secure the 9th spot on the event's line up. Though the game raised the most money, all of the numbers will likely have to be tallied and potential false donations may need to be weeded out.

To see how much money each game raised, be sure to hit the jump.

UMvC3: $71,690

Earlier: We're in the final 24 hours of the EVO 2017 Make-A-Wish Foundation charity drive, and only one of nine titles (pictured in the banner image) will make it onto the EVO roster this year.

The drive kicked off on January 25th, and though Killer Instinct took an early lead with a $5,000 start, it has since all but fallen out of the competition with six other competitors. Barring any last minute miracles, it seems only two titles remain in the running: Pokken and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Marvel has led most all of the drive, but Pokken continues to remain on its heels. Right now Pokken trails by just under $6,000, but we'd be surprised if we don't see some pretty hefty last minute donations just before the drive ends.

The drive ends tomorrow, February 8th at 12 p.m PDT.
