Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite Shut Out of EVO 2018!

The video game tournament of fighting games has announced which games will be there, and one game is not on that list.

The blunder that is Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite continues with the lack being apart of EVO 2018.  EVO 2018 is a video game fighter tournament held in the Japan (which just concluded) and the US (which will happen August 3rd thru the 5th at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV.

And today the games announced for said tournament were revealed:




BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle (which is a bit of surprise since it isn't even out yet. The game will be released June 5th), Dragon Ball FighterZ (released just a week ago and its been setting the gaming world on fire with it's fighting system and just appreciation for the anime/manga series), Injustice 2, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Tekken 7.

The omission is no doubt a hard blow to fans and Capcom itself for Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite. Just when things couldn't be bleaker this happened as well. The game floundered and just all hype died for it after it's launch and DLC content. It didn't help matters that "certain" characters on the Marvel side in prior vs. Capcom games are still excluded in the current game. Or that the game itself feels "less" than previous installments had been.

Will fan response change those who run this tournament into allowing the game in? Probably not. Though the fact a Gamecube game made seventeen years ago is in (along with a sequel of it), but a game just released a few months ago isn't? OUCH. That sound you might be actually be hearing could very well be the death rattle for the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise.
