Anime fighter inspired CEOtaku 2016 event has been announced
Community Effort Orlando(CEO) has announced its second CEOtaku event. The tournament is a collaboration between the anime community and CEO. The tournament was created as CEO organizer, Alex Jebailey, recognized a lack of exposure for anime fighters.
The tournament is scheduled to take place on October 1-2 in Orlando, Fl and will host a total of 16 game for competitors -- The weekend will also be a celebration of everything anime for everyone in attendance. New titles this year will include Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator and the King of Fighters XIV.
Anime fighters are considered niche because they require: a high level of expertise, skilled 2D designers, a highly colorful art style, and are mainly based on anime properties -- a niche market that knows their market very well. These type of games are referred to as being "anime" within the overall fighting game community. They are often visually different from more popular titles such as Street Fighter V.
Artists, vendors, and fans will be able to enjoy the second year of the premiere anime fighting game convention for Florida.
