The other new title this year (also from Arc System Works) has been Blazblue Cross Tag Battle; the 2v2 crossover has doubled the number of Blazblue participants: Central Fiction.
In general all the games have registered slight losses of between 100 and 200 participants with respect to the previous year, with the notable exception of Tekken 7 that increases in 200 participants and has already two years of increases. The biggest drop by far is that of Injustice 2, which has lost more than 500 participants, 60% of the total last year. In any case, the total balance has been positive thanks to the figure of DBFZ: despite having one game less than last year, there is one thousand more participants in total.
The curious fact has been the two versions of Super Smash Bros. The delivery of Wii U, which has gone under the provisional ranking lists for months, but at the last moment has hit a push and has overtaken Melee by Only one person.
