The Evolution Championship Series Picks Super Smash Bros. Melee as Final Game


The Evolution Championship Series is one of the world’s biggest fighting game tournaments, and is taken seriously in regards to the titles played. As such, in picking its seventh game to be played, the Evolution Championship Series held a charity drive to determine which would be the final game in the lineup.

The drive raised $225,744 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, with $94,683 brought in by Super Smash Bros. Melee, earning it the seventh spot in the tournament. That’s Melee, not Brawl; as in the Gamecube Super Smash Bros. The final lineup was revealed by IGN, and it contains the following games:

  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  • Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  • Mortal Kombat 9
  • Street Fighter x Tekken
  • King of Fighters XIII
  • Persona 4 Arena
  • Super Smash Bros. Melee
