Now that EVO 2011—the world's biggest and best fighting game tournament—has come to a close, it's time to look back at the best moments. Many of which have been thoughtfully compiled into this lovely video.
Kayo Satoh is not only a very talent fighting game player, she's also a model. Kayo, who fights under the moniker "KayoPolice", recently appeared at the Evo 2011 fighting championship.
More than two million viewers tuned in for the Evo 2011 World Finals last weekend, tournament organizers declared today.
The word "hype", in this business at least, in most cases refers to the buzz surrounding an upcoming video game. For fighting game fans, though, it has a very different and not-so-specific meaning.
The freshly-concluded EVO 2011 wasn't just a fighting game tournament. It was a celebration of all things fighting, meaning there were things like developer panels. And where there are panels, there are gameplay videos.
EVO 2011 is the fighting game tournament to end all fighting game tournaments, and while we've brought you the "official" winners, here's the real winner. Noah. Who is kicking some ass. Oh, and by the way, Noah is eight years old.
Just as we saw with the Marvel vs Capcom 3 final, the upsets continued this weekend at fighting game tournament EVO 2011, with Street Fighter "superstar" Daigo Umehara only able to finish fourth at this year's Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition event.
As EVO 2011 draws to a close, we're starting to see our champions crowned in the two major games on show. First up is Marvel vs Capcom 3, with this year's honours going to Viscant.
The team at Animatronic Ackbar is putting together a documentary on video game culture. It's looking good!
The world's biggest, baddest fighting game tournament, EVO 2011, is fast approaching (it's this weekend!), and if you can get there and see it in person, that's awesome. If you can't, that's OK! You can still watch it from home.
EVO 2010 was a blast. So EVO 2011, the world's biggest fighting game tournament, should also be a...blast?
Japanese model Kayo Satoh revealed that she'll be competing at this year's Evo fighting game championship. Very cool, considering that Satoh isn't only a talented player, but also a celebrity in Japan, regularly appearing on prime time television. Might mean more international exposure for Evo!
