While the exactly lineup has yet to be announced, this year’s event included Street Fighter V, Tekken 7, Super Smash Bros. For Wii U, Guilty Gear Xrd, BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Arms, and The King of Fighters XIV. Next year seems very likely to host Dragon Ball FighterZ and BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, considering the Japanese theme of the event. SoulCalibur VI could be in the mix as well.
