Samurai Shodown has been added to the main stage of the Evolution Championship Series (Evo). The remake of the classic fighting game has an early-summer 2019 release date. Main stage games unveiled during the Evo 2019 reveal livestream include: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Tekken 7, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st], Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, SoulCalibur VI, Mortal Kombat 11, and Samurai Shodown. While some games are heavily-expected returns (like Street Fighter V and Tekken 7), a notable few are welcome newcomers, such as the upcoming Samurai Shodown and the much-loved Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st]. Mr. Wizard and MarkMan have also pledged that side events will receive even more spotlight at Evo 2019, continuing the trend from last year in giving other communities more spotlight, even if their favorite game isn't on the main stage. Evo 2019 will take place on August 2-4 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
