Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 officially joins the EVO 2017 line up, registration opens today at 2 p.m.

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • February 16, 2017 at 1:21 p.m. PST

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.

Congrats to those who fought hard to raise money and get this game at Evo. Those who did raise money for your particular game, you can still show support by doing side tournaments. Your game may not be on the grand stage but show support to keep it alive and grow your community.

To be honest I thought "For Honor" would be in the list. Was also surprised Pokken had so much support it was a shocker in comparison to the other main stream fighting games.

Supported Killer Instinct but I'm happy for Marvel. Either way would've been a win win between the two.

HYPEEEE!!!

I dont care if its the first game on, it will get a proper send off in an arena. Marvel always brings the hype.

I really hope a patch comes out for the PS4 version, the capture for the game is screwed up because the right side does not have sound. Its a weird bug. If its not patched with xbone and pc version then it never will.

I don't play this game, but I know that there's a huge community that this news will make happy. I'm happy for them because of this and because of Infinite. Enjoy!

Judging by how many grown ass men were crying over Smash and Pokken, I could most definitely say there was a lot of doubt.

Let's goooo !!! Capcom, hope you've got something special planned for EVO, why not bring the MVCi producers over and also maybe a playable version of the game? An exhibition featuring MvcI and legendary Marvel players would be awesome too.
