Guess what game is officially back at EVO this year...

Mr. Wizard did one hell of a troll with SFXT though. Everyone including Skisonic thought it was XIII and then boom, tears.

Though liking to see so many games getting support at EVO, after thinking it was only going to be 5 games at EVO, to hear MK and SFxT overtake P4A and KOF, the SFxT thing almost had me ranting "Fuck EVO; don't even try to do a side-tournament." Wouldn't have meant it, but still.

Very true, but still hoping America levels up to the Top 8 or 4, even GF from SoCal or Chicago players.

I don't really care that SFxT is coming back... let them set themselves up for another unhype tournament if they want to.

MK9, on the other hand... there's no excuse for that still being there. I really don't know why they still bother with that game.

The games I'm forward to for sure are definitely KOFXIII and P4A. I can not wait to see what is in store for those two!

With XIII returning, who's planning on going to EVO now?

For me the ponies/bronies/MLP hype could easily end at the money raised for that charity, and that's if they make it.

as everyone is giving their thoughts about the evo lineup, I would say that list is just the only list that capcom and friends has, so it was expected that SFxT ver 2013 made it to take a spot.

about the troll message that they also sent out wich included the smash community I may say is the perect example of what shoryuken.com has become and why is it full of retarded gamers with all respect for those who are not.

KoFXIII is hype natured, if we can get a decent entry on EVO, the finals will take again number 1 spot just like last year.

KOF at evo is gonna be crazy again..

And if Madkof can repeat then IMO that would make him the best kofxiii player ever.. ^^

My darkhorse pick would by Ren.. This guy's EX Iori and Mr Karate are INSANE..

But at the moment there are so many great kofxiii players in Japan and Mexico that are at the top of their game so its going to be a tough one to call.. ^^

MK9 being at Evo makes perfect sense to me. Like the game or not, their community is dedicated and has been pulling in larger numbers than KOF at majors.

Let's hope for another great year of KOF and hopefully bring in some new blood.

Anyone else wishes that they will give a hint on what SNKp is doing on the upcoming tourney they sponsor?

I am so hyped for the japanese tourney. They seem to play a lot different than US players. They are not saving meters for big HD combos. When they see an opportunity to spend meter they take it!

We're all wondering about SNKP's next big move, and hopefully everyone is hyped for that SNKP-sponsored tournament. Not sure if it's supposed to be separate from the Korea vs Japan matches this weekend, but I'll be watching either way.

There is a distinct style to the Japanese play, and I think they're improving a lot too. Hope to see what they can do outside of Japan with bigger tournaments.

True, the MK community is still putting up # showing their dedication, something I hope our community is, or can aspire to.

SNKPlaymore and Famitsu's Enterbrain are officially cooperating with one of the first KOF13 tournaments of this year to be held in Japan. This Special Tournament will be held on Jan 14 at a venue in Nishinippori Versus. The registration details & page will be opened in 1-2 days so we'll probably get more details soon.
So... what about this page and infos.?

Can anyone give us more d├ętails about what's going on in Japan... lol

Edit:

The Professor posted all the info needed to watch the KCE Cup and the SNK tournament (V-1 Final), you guys should probably post it on the front page:

Quick update on the previously mentioned tournament so whatever sites that need this info can pick up on it.


Japan's first major KOF XIII tournament for 2013 "V-1 FINAL" is taking place this weekend with Official support from SNKPlaymore and peripheral maker Qanba. There's going to be a grueling tournament for seeding on the day before as well. The details are finally solid. Here's the lowdown.



- This is the first tournament for KOF13 in Japan that's receiving official support by SNKPlaymore. Qanba is also a supporter as well. (Not sure about Enterbrain, not listed in official site)

- This tournament in conjunction with the KCECup5 seeding tournament taking place the day before makes for the biggest KOFXIII event in Japan yet. Two days of pure KOF.

-EVO Champ MadKOF and Lacid are confirmed as guest players. There will also be a KOREA vs JAPAN 5-on-5 Exhibition featuring them and the top Cafeid players (reportedly Verna, Gutts, Kenssouzang). If things go according to plan, that means there's going to be four EVO finalists at this event. (MadKOF[1st], Verna[3nd], Gutts[4th], Lacid[5th tied w/Romance])

- Rules for both days: 2-on-2 team match, same characters can't be used by teammates, Alt characters are considered separate.

- The event is professionally written and organized to make KOF understandable to even the general non-KOF audience. It's an official NicoNico broadcast to be shot using professional equipment. Dune and Shoki will be commentating. Both days are free for viewing of course (requires login. Make an account).
