Ton of worldwide entrants. To my knowledge it was third to both AE and Marvel.
Generated a lot of viewers. This is nothing but good news for sponsors and the EVO Team.
[*]Opened a lot of eyes to the series and it got even more major exposure.
KOF has always been there. People have heard of it even if they have never played it. I just wonder how this years EVO affected it in the thoroughly mainstream audience. In my opinion this is the most important time for any fighting game to get this kind of exposure, as I believe that the “Big Game” AE2012 is, like it or not, beginningto run out of steam. (Great news for the new GG, SG etc)
I think that when people think of EVO, You think of Street Fighter or Marvel, you think of hype and amazing moments and comebacks. You think of the FGC community at it’s best, do you think KOF can have more of a “Place” in this?
I know the previous paragraphs made little sense. So I’ll just try and TL;DR it.
“Will KOF stand with Marvel and AE equally next year?”
I personally think no. But I would like to think it will come incredibly close.
