New Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite trailer displays the power of mind, additional gameplay footage highlights added characters

The official trailer debuting the Mind stone and showcasing the returns of Haggar, Nemesis, Spider-Man and Frank West has been released along with extended footage of the characters in battle.

First up, the mind stone offer combo potential in two very different ways. The surge gives players a command grab that leaves opponents in a dizzy or stunned state, allowing a full combo after use. The storm ability fills the hyper gauge to maximum, allowing players access to as much meter as they might need. 

Meanwhile, an additional 12 minutes of the new characters in action has also been made available by IGN, answering a few more questions about the returning fighters. Spider-Man does retain his Maximum Spider super and his new move from the trailer seems to be named Spider Cannon.

Both Haggar and Frank West have also receieved new moves, with Haggar now bringing a trusty barrel from Metro City that can both be thrown as a projectile or used as a shield to absorb one hit, and West showing off a dash attack wearing his Servbot helmet and the tripod originally shown in the new trailer.

Gamora is heavily featured in the new footage, as she shows off her myriad gun and sword attacks along with a super gives her access to a shadow double that mimics her moves.

Special stream to reveal Injustice 2's Starfire coming July 21

The last Fighter Pack 1 character coming to Injustice 2 will be shown during a special presentation from San Diego Comic-Con 2017.

Starfire will be revealed during a special DC All Access stream with Ed Boon starting at 1 p.m. PDT on July 21, 2017. She is the final character in the first wave of DLC characters that started with Red Hood in June.

The news was first hinted at by Boon early in July, but the Injustice Twitter account confirmed it with a picture of Starfire and details of the upcoming stream. 

Although Starfire will round out the first pack of DLC for Injustice 2, the June update to the title at first showed a total of nine additional character slots and Xbox recently confirmed that Black Manta will be one of those characters. It will be interesting to see if Boon reveals any details of fortcoming character packs during Comic-Con, or if for now Starfire is the only new information.

Black Manta revealed as Injustice 2 DLC character by Xbox ad

Although Injustice 2's June update left some players convinced they were going to be playing as one of Aquaman's classic villains in the future, Xbox Live has confirmed that Black Manta will be playable in the title.

A seemingly accidental ad on the Xbox Marketplace has revealed that players will be able to "Fight as Black Manta in Injustice 2" in the future.

The timing is confusing for Injustice fans, who haven't even received a trailer for the final character in Fighter Pack 1, Starfire, as this preview has made its appearance. That being said, NetherRealm's Ed Boon did allude to new information being unveiled at the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con 2017, so it's possible some questions might be answered on July 20-23.

Cat's out of the bag: more details on Jubei's appearance in BBCF 2.0

Famitsu has a new article (scans courtesy of HDKirin) explaining the basic moves and abilities of Jubei as he appears in the upcoming BlazBlue Central Fiction 2.0 update.

According to translations by GREATFERMAN, Jubei is a small character that excels at speed. His drive, Shiranui, marks opponents and allows him to keep strong pressure. Jubei also has a slow-moving fireball and a slash attack with different enders. The character's biggest move of note, however, is his install super Fudou Sharenjin which powers up both his special moves and his drive for the remainder of the round.

According to Hiago, BBCF 2.0 will be a free update, but there is neither a release date nor a price for Jubei listed at this time.

Paradise Arcade Shop's analog joystick lever Project Magenta coming this fall, introduced at Evo 2017

During my time at this year's Evolution, I checked out the Shoryuken Team Tech Talk booth which showed off Paradise Arcade Shop's upcoming product that has been in the works for a couple of years.

Project Magenta is a PCB for the Sanwa Denshi JLF joystick lever that effectively replaces the stock switches. This in turn makes the JLF change from having digital outputs to being an analog lever. Even the exposed side of the PCB shows which directions you triggered. For players who want to hear switch clicks, it's possible with the Magenta.

One of the big reasons that Magenta is aiming for an analog solution is so players can adjust both directional and cardinal zones thanks to its dedicated calibration software. Not only can you adjust the overall zones but you can even customize individual areas. If you want to have no neutral dead zone or maybe only want down left to have more coverage, it's definitely possible with Magenta. The PCB does require a five-volt power source so you will need a JLF harness with six pins and wires with some modding required

If you are worried about legality in tournaments, Magenta is tournament legal. Evo's Mr. Wizard is the product's first customer! The plan is that the Magenta will launch some time this fall so follow the Shoryuken thread for updates.
