As confirmed by Joey Cuellar a.k.a. Mr. Wizard, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is now available for registration at Smash.GG’s EVO 2017 page! If you have yet to register, we recommend doing so as soon as possible because tickets for Sunday finals are selling out fast, as are hotels.
For those unaware, EVO held a donation drive that doubled as a contest to decide which game would fill the ninth and final slot for the 2017 lineup at Mandalay Bay. It was a close contest between Marvel and Pokken, but ultimately, Marvel emerged the victor. As a result, it will receive a $10,000 prize pot and the honor of leading off the Sunday finals. Read here for more details.
If you have already registered, it’s not too late to add Marvel to the list of games you will play at EVO. See BearUNLV’s Twitter post below for details.
