New Game From Melty Blood Team Coming Next Week
2D fighter to be announced at Hydra GP tournament in Akihabara.
Ecole Software will be holding a special installment of its Hydra GP fighting tournament series on the 6th (Sunday). The focus of this event will be on the 2D fighting game Melty Blood.
There will be one major attraction at the event outside of the top notch Melty Blood play, though. Ecole says that the event will see the announcement of the latest 2D fighting game from the Melty Blood staff. The announcement will take place during the event awards ceremony at 15:30 and will see the first video footage of the new game. Attendees at the event will walk home with a catalogue featuring the main visual from the new game.
Hydra GP will be held at Club Sega Akihabara on the 6th starting at 11:00. The Melty Blood tournament will run from 13:00 to 15:00 and will have a total of 64 participants, 44 selected in advance and 20 same day. The winner of the tournament will receive the "Hydra Gold Lever," a limited edition joystick (which can't actually be used, but it's still pretty neat).
