For all of you who don’t know yet, NEC 15 has been announced and this year it’s going to be bigger than ever! As far as anime games go, we’ll be getting our own (large) separate ballroom with a bar. Turn up?
As far as games go there will be GGAC+R, BBCP, P4U2, AH3LM, UNIEL, and DFC. The wildcard at this point is Xrd, and at most it will get either a Red vs Blue or single elimination singles/teams tournament. Those of you who were hoping for a main Xrd tournament will have to wait until either Frosty Faustings or Final Round. Sorry!
Right now you can pre-register for all games (except for DFC). Venue fee is $30 pre-reg and $50 at the door, so save yourself some money and register now! Remember that by pre-registering you’re helping the event organizers plan accordingly and not to mention saving yourself money! Currently there is no promo-code for booking a hotel room, but expect it to be posted in the near future.
Expect lots of announcements concerning special events, pot bonuses, prizes, and even foreign players. To start it off, @HeartfulPunch has announced that Owen (DaidoujiPro) will be coming from Japan to enter AH3LM! The best way to keep up with any news regarding NEC is through either Facebook or Twitter so give them a like and follow.
NEC has always manged to be the largest anime tournament each year, and I expect this year to be no different. Bring the hype people!
