The fighting game community's Super Bowl is fast approaching as EVO 2019 is taking place next weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada. EVO tournament organizer Joey "Mr. Wizard" Cuellar has been providing updates about the upcoming event over the past several months, and today we've got another big one.

This morning, Wizard sent out a tweet that reveals the game order for EVO 2019 finals. If you want to know on which day and slot your favorite game's finals are being played, we now have the answer.

As we see from the finals order, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be closing out the show this year. This isn't all that surprising, considering the level of popularity the game has right now and the fact that it was the most entered EVO 2019 title with 3,492 registered players competing.

The remainder of EVO Sunday is populated by BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, Street Fighter 5, and Tekken 7 (in that order).

EVO newcomers Mortal Kombat 11 and Samurai Shodown will be big draws for Saturday finals, with 1,567 and 1,719 entrants, respectively. Samurai Shodown was only released back in June, but it managed to break the record for most competitors registered ever for an SNK game at EVO.

Check out the game order below.
