Update: All nine titles for this year's EVO have been revealed and you can see them below.

Earlier: If this is anything like years previous, we'll have EVO tournament organizer Joey "Mr. Wizard" Cuellar presenting this information along with Mark "MarkMan" Julio over the course of an hour or so via live stream. At this point we do not know exactly how many games we'll be seeing, but recent editions of the massive fighting game event have seen eight or nine titles total.

We've rounded up our predictions for this evening, complete with explanations for some of our less certain speculations, and you can additionally see what many of our readers think will happen in the comments of that article.

Beyond game reveals, this stream has seen special content announcements before as well. Eliza was revealed for Tekken 7 during this same stream in 2017, and both Yang Xiao Long and Blake Belladonna were announced as free DLC for BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle last year.

Cuellar and Julio articulated a few notes about the event that are worth mentioning here. Attendees will be given free water this year, and prices on bottled water will be lower than previous years. Only four games will be played on Sunday so as to avoid running until midnight or later.

You can sign up for the event after 7:30 p.m. PT over at the registration page. Early bird registration is $50, but will go all the way up to $90 come mid-June.

You'll find an embed for the EVO stream below the jump so you can watch right along with us and see which games will make the big stage this year. Here's a graphic showing the logos for all nine titles included:
