The fighting game Super Bowl is almost upon us, folks. EVO 2019 is taking place this weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada, bringing in the best fighting game players from around the world to compete in numerous competitive fighting titles.

You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone in the fighting game community right now who isn't excited for the big event this weekend, and fans such as artist sokohaaredayo on Twitter funneled that excitement into their artwork to create an exceptional, Street Fighter 5-themed piece for this year's EVO.

This art piece features characters from each season representing for their title at EVO. We see launch character Rashid, season 2's Kolin, Sagat and G from season 3, and the latest character released for the game, season 4's Kage.

Each fighter here sees their personality shine through as G tips his hat, Kolin summons icy shards, and Sagat stands stoic with his arms crossed. It was also a great choice from the artist to add both G and Sagat to this piece as both were unveiled at EVO 2018 on the grand stage.

Street Fighter 5's finals will be second in the line up on EVO Sunday, so you'll want to tune in fairly early to catch all of the action. Fans are also expecting a big announcement for the game from Capcom this weekend, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.

EVO 2019 is taking place on August 2nd - 4th at the Mandalay Bay resort and casino. Stay tuned here at EventHubs as we'll have all of the latest updates throughout the weekend.
