The EVO 2018 lineup was revealed during the RedBull eSports stream. Eight games will have a main event this year. Mr. Wizard mentioned that the regristration will likely start on February 15, 2018.

When prompted by a question, Mr. Wizard also noted that they were teaming up with Humble Bundle as part of a Puerto Rico relief effort. More details about this will be revealed at the end of the month. There was no information about whether or not it would add a ninth game to the roster.

In the main lineup, the finals day for five of them will take place on Sunday. This means we will see them on the big stage. BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and King of Fighters 14 were all featured as main games in 2017's EVO lineup, but were not selected to return.

Earlier, we asked our readers if they thought Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite would be one of the games at EVO. Unfortunately for Marvel fans, it will only be present at a side tournament.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is one of the fighters that has only recently come out. There's been a bit of a craze going on for this game. As a result of this, its final part of the bracket will occur on Sunday.

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, hasn't been released yet but will be available by the time of the event. Despite this, the title's competition will be finished before the last day.
