King of Fighters 13 unlikely to return to MLG's lineup, future plans for fighting game growth

King of Fighters 13 unlikely to return to MLG's lineup, future plans for fighting game growth It's unlikely that King of Fighters 13 will continue to be in Major League Gaming's (MLG) lineup of fighting games, Carlos Arvelo, community manager, recently told EventHubs. He added that it's not impossible for the title to return, but due to poor performance at recent tournaments, it doesn't seem like it will happen.

I went back and tallied the number of entrants based off of the brackets MLG has posted, for King of Fighters 13, Mortal Kombat 9 and Soul Calibur 5. Here's what the turnouts looked like at previous events.

MLG Columbus: Winter Championships - March 23-25
• King of Fighters 13 — 25 entrants
• Mortal Kombat 9 — 92 entrants
• Soul Calibur 5 — 75 entrants

MLG Anaheim: Spring Championships - June 8-10
• King of Fighters 13 — 30 entrants
• Mortal Kombat 9 — 84 entrants
• Soul Calibur 5 — 59 entrants

There's some positive news here though, as Arvelo added that MLG isn't going to slow down in regards to fighters, and if anything — they'll be growing in the future. He noted that Major League Gaming is looking to put a new strategy in place for fighting games that will be more in line with what people are used to.

We'll have more news here on EventHubs about MLG's fighting game plans, as it develops, so please keep checking back.

Next time you ask yourself what someone is listening to on their headphones during a match, if it's Zangitan, you won't have to wonder, you'll know — even if maybe you didn't want to.
