Posted on the SRK blog this morning:
"Congrats to the Melty Blood community who has won the vote for the final game at Evo 2010. Melty Blood won with a decisive 27% of voters and will have their game added to the lineup of Evo 2010.
What do you all think about Melty Blood being at EVO? Would you have rather seen Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike as I would?
Well, for those of you who may have been upset that Marvel did not make it, the EVO has a surprise for you there as well:
"We are also making one more change to our 2010 lineup. After conferring with the BlazBlue community we have decided to replace BlazeBlue with Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for the PS3. Big thanks to the BlazBlue community for graciously stepping down."
Makes sense -- BlazBlue: CT at this point is a dead game with many top players dropping the game completely due to now having access to Continuum Shift. It's available at many arcades in fighting game hotspots around the country and...other means as well so playing an outdated version of the game makes no sense.
With a slew of new games on the roster this year, you can expect EVO2K10 one of the most unique and possibly hypest EVO yet! See you there!
