The Make-A-Wish Foundation charity drive to decide which game would be added to the official EVO 2017 line up concluded last week with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 as the top earner. The community raised over $70,000 to secure the 9th game spot at the event this year.

EVO tournament organizer Joey "Mr. Wizard" Cuellar took to Twitter earlier this week to announce that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has officially been added to the event's line up. Registration opens up at 2 p.m. PST / 5 p.m. EST today.

If you're looking to join in on the action this July, you can sign up for the tournament over on Smash.gg.

Mr. Wizard noted on Twitter that this year's Marvel tournament will be ran using the recent PlayStation 4 release of the game. This differs from the traditional Xbox 360 version of the fighter that many top players feel is the optimal choice.
