    Oh, this is a nice surprise. Definitely looking forward to this panel.

  • Wait are those the only panels?

    No panels at all on Sunday?

    No concert Saturday night?

      looks like that’s it for this year. most likely because the tournament its taking the whole day on Sunday on the third floor

    Wow the fact that there are only 6 panels makes it even cooler that PS I Love You XOXO got in. I think it’ll be nice to have fewer panels this year. It’ll give me more time to check out games and now I won’t have to pick one panel at the expense of another.

  • While I might guess that the primary focus will be on big-ticket 3D fighting games at the panel, it would be neat if there was some time set aside to discuss 2D titles – such as the ongoing BlazBlue series, by the aforementioned Arc System Works. Not just in terms of their existence as fighting games in and of themselves, but in how they make a point of delving into detailed story modes (as also seen in the Atlus/ASW collaoration on the two Persona 4 Arena games).

  • not surprised. there are so many fighters on the ps4. with guilty gear xrd, street fighter 5, j stars vs, tekken, doa5:lr, king of fighters, mk, fighting climax ignition, and more, it’s definitely one of the ps4’s stronger genres.
