Why yes, I do realize that EVO the biggest fighting game tournament of the year ended on Sunday. Yes, this article is kind of late but I don’t care since my Grammy wasn’t doing so well and if you have a problem with that then don’t read this site.
Anyways, two days removed from EVO and my blood is still pumping. Each year EVO happens, it somehow tops itself. Through out the three days storylines form organically and when the top eight happens, mind melt. This year was no different.
In Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, a game dominated by a select handful of top tier characters, one legend stood out from the pack. That legend is no other than one of the gods of Marvel, Justin Wong. Now if you’re unfamiliar with Justin Wong, he’s been around the fighting game community for ages. He’s been in every single top 8 in both MvC2 and 3 in EVO history. After winning 7 out of 10 MvC2 tournaments at EVO, he has yet to take one In 3. That all changed this Sunday.
Watch him in the winner finals and the grand finals and let the hype run through you.
