No Melee? Finally.

That's actually a pretty unexpected lineup. Not an unwelcome one, mind. Actually it's pretty much what I wanted that I was capable of realistically expecting.

Glad to see they got Toei off their ass about Fighterz.

For the last time, it wasn't Toei's doing. If you're going to toss blame, make sure it's the people actually at fault.

It takes a lot of mental gymnastics to justify the idea that Toei has any capability whatsoever to do anything to Namco / Bandai, or tournament handlers in general.

If it was shueisha i'd understand, but Toei does not have that level of authority. So blaming them for any of this is silly.

Damn, no Guilty Gear.

I guess Figherz really is their golden child now.

I'm actually surprised UNIB made it in over Guilty Gear. In fact, a lot of the sites I've seen have a lot of players questioning its inclusion over GG.

REV 2 is a two year old game that's received no meaningful updates aside from balance patches and isn't really a mainstay like SF is. Nor has it been getting the push and fan support that the newer UNIST has.

I mean it's not so much that I think GG is a huge franchise (it's always been more of a cult favorite) and more that I don't know all that many people who actually play Under Night. Not knocking it. I just had no idea there was a decent scene for it.

Melee is gone, but its spirit will live on as everyone plays Ultimate with those Gamecube controllers they sell for the Switch.

[up][up]Believe it or not, UNIST has been matching GGXRD in entrant numbers for major/regional tournaments recently. While it is unfortunate for GG players it's not like it came out of nowhere. Plus a lot of its players are very sympathetic to a game that's been bubbling as a cult hit but can't ever make a major breakthrough, considering 20 years ago that was where GG itself stood.

[up]Thanks for the info. Very interesting. I'll have to read up on UN, since I always thought the character designs were neat.

Good for UNIEL, but that does leave me sad about XRD's fate.

Hmm, so it's not completely gone, that's good. With DBFZ, Cross Tag Battle and UNIB as main events, plus Xrd and CF as side events, that means EVO is practically being dominated by Arc System Works games. Funny how just a few years back people thought it was a mostly Capcom-dominated event.

Every fighting game under the sun has an EVO side tourney, though Arc Sys themselves hosting it is noteworthy
