Update: You can check out the final results of our poll to see which potential announcements the community is most looking forward to at EVO 2019 after the jump.

Like previous years, it's seeming very likely that we'll be getting interesting fighting game announcements at EVO 2019. In fact, it's basically been confirmed that Sony has some announcement that probably pertains to the fighting game community at the upcoming event.

The main stage lineup this time around includes Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (as the game with the most entrants), Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition, Tekken 7, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Samurai Shodown, Mortal Kombat 11, Soul Calibur 6, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, and Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st]. There could be some fun surprises waiting for us before the end of each game's events.

The question is, which potential announcements are fans most excited for? There's obviously no guarantee that all these main lineup games will feature something new to unveil, but the anticipation is certainly there.

Season 4 of Street Fighter 5 has been very lacking since the release of Kage. Still, there have been plenty of hints at something coming in August by none other than Yoshinori Ono.

What about a new Marvel vs. Capcom entry or another Capcom crossover? Has it been too soon since Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite?

Tekken 7 has already finished with Season 2. Although Harada previously stated that there are no plans for future characters at this time, it's possible there may still be surprises waiting.

When are we going to see the trailer for Janemba in Dragon Ball FighterZ? EVO 2019 is looking pretty likely.

It remains to be seen if Nintendo will continue announcing things at EVO like they did last year for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Remember that we still don't have exact details about the Dragon Quest Hero's release date.

There's surely a lot of hype surrounding Nightwolf in Mortal Kombat 11. A trailer seems imminent. What about Sindel and Spawn though?

Let us know which potential announcements you're most excited for below. You only get three choices though. Use them wisely.
