After three years the fighting game community was finally able to return to the kind of offline, tournament action that only Evo can provide. Pair this pent up potential with major reveals for franchises like Street Fighter and Tekken, and you have yourself an explosion of excitement unlike most anything else.






We were lucky enough to have our own Jon “Catalyst” Grey attending finals day on Sunday, and he was able to capture footage of some of the most intense moments for both Street Fighter and Tekken. If you weren’t able to make it to Evo in person this year, we’d love to share some of the experience with you.









We’ve got four different moments from the Sunday action recorded including the Street Fighter 6 reveal of both Kimberly and Juri, the Tekken announcements and cryptic tease, the final round of Street Fighter 5’s grand finals, and the moments after Knee finally secured his Tekken victory.


You’ve likely already seen the content that so many of us rushed to discover as soon as possible after it went live, but seeing and feeling the power of thousands of FGC fans in concert is something else entirely.


The sense of community and family becomes strong when the connection between so many different people becomes so immediately apparent in their shared love for fighting games.


This is one of the aspects of major events that the technological advances of online showcases will never be able to capture in the same way, and we’d like to express how overjoyed we are that it’s finally possible again.


Check out the footage in the video below and let us know what you thought of these awesome reveals in the comments. Were you able to attend Evo this year? If so, were there any takeaways you’d like to share with those who were not?
