Evo expands fighting game championships for 2016

The Evolution Champion Series, one of the longest running fighting tournaments in the world, has been expanded for 2016.

Newsbrief: The Evolution Champion Series, one of the longest running fighting tournaments in the world, is about to get even bigger

Event organizers have announced that this year's championship will take place from July 15-17 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, before switching to the Mandalay Bay sports arena for the Sunday finals -- a huge step up in size compared to last year's sole venue.

This year's series will also continue to shake things up with the addition of Guilty Gear Xrd - Revelator, Pokken Tournament, Street Fighter V, and Tekken 7: Fated Retribution to the Evo roster.

Series regulars Super Smash Bros. Melee, Killer Instinct, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat X, and Super Smash Bros. Wii U will all return to this year's line-up.
