animevo-2015-lineupWhile not every fighting game can find representation in the main Evolution lineup, dedicated competitors always manage to highlight their favorite games through intense side tournaments every year.

As part of last night’s installment of Super Desperation Radio, Daryl “DJ Cream” Bunao and Alan “St1ckbug” Bakes joined the broadcast to officially announce a handful of side tournaments they are dubbing AnimEvo 2015. This collective will include competition in a variety of titles, including Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late, BlazBlue: Chronophantasma EXTEND, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R, Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!!, Mobile Suite Gundam: Extreme Vs. Full Boost, Dengeki Bunko FIGHTING CLIMAX, Aquapazza, and Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code.

Now, before you get up in arms about your favorite fighter not making the cut, remember that this is basically a collection of separate side events, organized by individuals who decided to band together under a single name. If a game that would normally be grouped with those above isn’t included in the list, it means there are currently no plans in place for it to appear in Las Vegas, so get to work!

In addition to these singles brackets, AnimEvo will also feature team tournaments for Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- and BlazBlue: Chronophantasma EXTEND, both of which are being supported by the folks at Arc System Works and Aksys Games.

Further details concerning scheduling, entry fees, prizes, and more are still being hammered out, so be sure to follow AnimEvo on Twitter for up-to-date information.
