Guilty Gear Xrd REV2, Under Night, and Samurai Shodown lead the pack early!
Registration opened for CEOtaku 2019 about two weeks back, the fifth installment of Alex Jebailey’s anime “spin-off” event to Community Effort Orlando. Aimed at giving games of the air dasher variety their time in the sun as main titles, the event’s early registration leaderboard seems to indicate a strong showing by some of the event’s core attractions.
Guilty Gear Xrd REV2 is leading the pack, showing that there is still a strong following for the Team Red game, despite it not making the Evo main lineup this year. Following closely behind is Under Night In-Brith EXE: Late[st], which will be coming off a strong 1,156-player Evo debut. SNK’s hot newly-released Samurai Shodown comes in at third, with BlazBlue: CentralFiction and Cross Tag Battle rounding out the Top 5.
Skullgirls: 2nd Encore, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Million Arthur: Arcana Blood, Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code and Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax IGNITION round out the Top 10 of the 16 main games, with the last two tied for 9th.
Jebailey also gives Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 an Honorable Mention for not currently being in the last place. Other main titles include Guilty Gear XX Accent Core +R, SoulCalibur VI, Sailor Moon S, Koihime Enbu RyoRaiRai, and Kill la Kill the Game: IF.
