Update: The full lineup has been revealed and you can view it below after the jump. There are eight main games and then a special eight-person Marvel vs. Capcom 2 tournament featuring four MvC2 EVO champs including IFC|Yipes, Justin Wong, Duc Do, and Sanford Kelly and four additional players who will be determined at a later date. You can now register for the event right here.

Earlier: Today is the big day as we'll soon learn which games will be played at this year's Evolution Championship Series.

Tournament Organizer, Joey "Mr. Wizard" Cuellar, will be doing his yearly lineup stream to let the fighting game community know what to practice and be ready to compete in for the big dance slated for July 31-Aug 2 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Recent years have included nine titles set to play out over the three days of EVO action. Not only will fans be looking to see if their favorite games will be represented, but also which time slots each finals bracket will be assigned to.

Last year we saw four top eight brackets play out on Sunday while the other five played out on either Friday or Saturday evening. Last year also marked the first time we've seen Street Fighter 5 not get the headliner spot as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate would be the one to close out the event.

Last year's lineup included the aforementioned SF5 and SSBU as well as Tekken 7, Mortal Kombat 11, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Soul Calibur 6, Samurai Shodown, and Under Night In-Birth.

We recently ran a poll asking readers which titles they expect as well as which they're hoping for, and you can see the results right here.
