AnimEVO 2019 final game list and numbers revealed, Windjammers just behind Guilty Gear Xrd for most popular title

AnimEVO is back for another year of action running alongside EVO 2019 as the unofficial home for a ton of the big side tournaments happening at Mandalay Bay that aren't part of the nine mainstage titles.

Registration has closed for AnimEVO 2019 where 927 attendees have signed up in total which equals over 10 percent of those 9,100 there for the main event including the likes of Hellpockets, AN|Kizzie Kay, CO|Fenrich, Lythero, PG|MarlinPie and brkrdave among many others for 31 different titles.

Some recent fan-favorites continue to pull in well over 100 entrants like former mainstage title Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 and BlazBlue Central Fiction plus newer titles like Million Arthur Arcana Blood which Square Enix officially sponsored to make it a free entry game with an added pot bonus.

Windjammers actually ended up with almost the highest amount of entrants out of the whole side event without even being a fighting game though it does continue to carry a dedicated following in the fighting game community like Catherine — which will also be there alongside its remake Catherine: Full Body.

There's also going to be a ton of classic fighters at AnimEVO as well like Sailor Moon S, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters, Fighters History Dynamite, Melty Blood, Vampire Savior, Samurai Shodown 2 and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom to provide us hours of fun in between the massive titles.

Marvel vs. Capcom and Street Fighter titles are not part of this year's big side event, but don't worry because all of those games will still be running their own side tournaments separate from the mainstage and AnimEVO including Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Infinite.
