The pleasant vibes of Kirby’s Epic Yarn have been hit or miss so far in this tournament, but this group gives us a pair of hits. Elsewhere, this is a lighter Persona tourney compared to last time but the series is still putting in work.


It’s time for group play! We have 1,866 songs this time, in 24-song groups. That means 77 full groups, plus a 78th group of 18. For the group stage, vote for as many songs as you like! Songs will be ranked based on how many upvotes they got compared to how many people voted in that round. 1 After all groups are done, the top 512 songs from across all groups will advance to the playoffs.

…unless! After group play, but before the playoffs proper, there will be a wild card runoff! If an individual game places more than 10 songs into the top 512, songs 11+ per game will face off against songs 513+2 in a play-in round.

We’ll be “feathering” groups; voting on group 19 will be active until Friday July 9th at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 18 is still active until 10 PM tonight; vote here. Group 20 will start Friday and be active until Sunday, and so on. Please listen to every song! Don’t just vote name recognition.

You can listen to all songs in group 19 in this handy YouTube playlist! (Don’t worry, songs will also be linked in the comments, where voting will take place)

Again, voting for group 19 is open until Friday July 9th at 10:00PM Pacific
