Evo 2022 Lineup Includes KOF XV, Melty Blood, and Guilty Gear Strive

The full Evo 2022 lineup is here, and quite a few new games will show up this year. Most notably, Guilty Gear Strive, KOF XV, and Melty Blood: Type Lumina are all part of the roster. This means a third of the featured titles will be newly released ones.

Here’s the full Evo 2022 lineup of nine games. A number of returning titles will appear, like Dragon Ball FighterZ, Mortal Kombat 11, Street Fighter V and Tekken 7. However, this year there is no BlazBlue or Injustice 2. The PS4 versions of all games will be used, and people are asked to bring their own controllers.

  • Dragon Ball FighterZ
  • Granblue Fantasy Versus
  • Guilty Gear Strive
  • KOF XV
  • Melty Blood: Type Lumina
  • Mortal Kombat 11: Ultimate
  • Skullgirls: 2nd Encore
  • Street Fighter V: Champion Edition
  • Tekken 7

There is one game that we knew wouldn’t be a part of the Evo 2022 lineup ahead of the announcement. Organizers announced there wouldn’t be a Super Smash Bros. game at the event. Nintendo did announce it would hold Super Smash Bros Melee and Ultimate tournaments with Panda Global, however.

Evo 2022 will be hold in-person between August 5-7, 2022. It will return to the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas. Registration is open.
