Gotta love the trolling they did when they announced Smash Melee. I'm also a bit disappointed that KOF got dropped, I'd rather have that in as a main tourney than Tekken 7. And that's because no one will have sufficient time to lab it up for that game. Even DOA would have been a better choice for a 3D fighter, but I understand that Tekken 7 was placed in the list because it had Namco's support.
But man... nine games for the main event! I'm not gonna get any sleep come EVO.
If the tone of the RE2 segments in The Darkside Chronicles is anything to go by, it'll be a lot like that. Leon will be in his swag agent persona and Claire will be one-shotting zombies with throwing knives. I wonder if the multiple campaigns scenario will get in the way of the budget however. That original game was like 4 games in one.
The possibility of a metroid-esque shooter is intriguing though. Although, I don't know if Capcom knows how to make shooting at zombies fun considering the zombie enemies in RE6 didn't flinch one bit when shot at.
