Evo 2016 roundup: all the finals and winners

2 min read

EVO 2016

Evo 2016 took place this past weekend with a slightly updated roster of games where people beat the snot out of each other… digitally. Street Fighter IV has been a main attraction of the event for seven years now, but it’s been replaced – with Street Fighter V of course. A wild Pokken Tournament also made its debut at this year’s event.

All in all, there were 9 fighting games present at Evo 2016. Did you miss out on all the action? Fear not, for I’ve rounded up all the finals (and winners) right here for your viewing pleasure…

Did you watch Evo 2016? I completely missed it, even though Darryn wrote a reminder post! I do plan on watching some of the finals later today at least. What about you? Will you be catching up on all the action?
