The EVO 2024 tournament will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Moment 37 from EVO 2004 of Street Fighter III 3rd Strike. The organizers have reserved the final spot for the game which refuses to consider itself a classic. The tournament will take place from July 19 to 21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and it is now open for registration.
The event will feature the seven best recent fighting games in addition to Capcom’s 1999 titan. Some of the games featured are less than a year old and all have Rollback Netcode. Street Fighter III 3rd Strike, which is currently part of the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, will also be featured at the tournament.
Although some specific games like Dragon Ball FighterZ, Killer Instinct, and Super Smash Bros Ultimate are absent from the event, it is expected that there will be great news and powerful announcements during the tournament. The EVO 2024 aims to be the epicenter of everything related to the golden age of fighting games.
With Street Fighter III 3rd Strike returning to the stage, the tournament promises to bring epic moments similar to Moment 37. The EVO 2024 seeks to capture the essence of the fighting game phenomenon.
