Details leak on Dragon Ball FighterZ versions, U.S. release date?

The preorder page on the Microsoft website for Dragon Ball FighterZ has included many details about the game that have not yet been officially released by publisher Bandai Namco or developer Arc System Works.

For starters, the game's U.S. release date is scheduled for Jan. 25, 2017, a week before the game comes out in Japan. More interestingly, the game's Ultimate Edition includes in its price a fighters pack for eight new characters, a music pack with 11 songs from the anime and a commentator voice pack.

The roster for DBFZ has not been finalized but it is clear—if the details are accurate—that Bandai Namco and Arc System Works plan to be adding content at a brisk pace once the game is released. However, Xbox has had incorrect releases dates on its site before, so for now readers should treat at least some of this information with skepticism.

Tekken 7 update to introduce more New Japan Pro Wrestling content

Bandai Namco has announced new content in its ongoing collaboration with New Japan Pro Wrestling for Tekken 7

Along with new character and account customizations featuring the Bullet Club, Taguchi Japan and King's Rainmaker shirt, Tekken 7 will also be getting a new outfit and rage art for Lars Alexandersson. Both the outfit and special "sling blade" rage art come from popular NJPW wrestler Hiroshi Tanahashi, who uses the move as one of his signature attacks. The game will also play Tanahashi's theme, "Love & Energy," when Lars uses the outfit.

The content will be launching on the arcade version of Tekken 7 on Nov. 18, 2017. There is currently no news as to whether the content will be included in an update for the console and Steam versions of the game, but as New Japan content was included before it seems like a possibility.

Gameplay details reveal the secrets of Zeku's ninjutsu

Capcom has posted gameplay details on Zeku ahead of his release in Street Fighter V on Oct. 24, giving players more information on the character's moves and abilities.

Zeku's ability to switch from his older form to his younger comes from his V-Skill, which also teleports him either in front of or behind his opponent depending on the input. Zeku's two forms are very different: in his older form Zeku has slower moves but retains a flip move similar to Guy's for mixup opportunities, while in his younger form he is much quicker and has a short run like his student.

Zeku's V-Trigger, meanwhile, is a special dash that allows him to follow up with a "custom combo that deals additional hits." His V-Trigger does not change depending on whether is he young or old.

As with other characters, Zeku will release with both a Story and Battle costume but he will have a Nostalgia costume as well. For more information, including pictures and gifs of Zeku's abilities in action, readers can head over to Capcom Unity.

Oct. 16 patch to bring changes to Spider-Man, others in MvCI

A new patch for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will release one day before the game's first wave of DLC characters launches on Oct. 17, 2017, and it will change how characters like Spider-Man are played in the game.

The biggest news is that Spider-Man's web ball projectile is getting an overhaul as now after a third "grab" projectile—including Frank's hammer throw—hits an opponent, they will spin out of the combo. These combos can also now be escaped by using counter tag.

Other changes include a fix to a bug that "made it impossible to block during the last frame of crouching block recovery"; the ability to tech in eight directions after certain hits in the air including Dante's bee hive and Doctor Strange's bolts of Balthakk; and specific fixes for those characters along with Captain America and Dormammu.

Readers can check out the complete list of changes at Capcom Unity.

MvCI Spider-Man infinite soft-banned at Battle for the Stones events

The Spider-Man infinite that has been the subject of debate in the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite community has been weakened in official Battle for the Stones tournaments.

The infinite, which uses the character's web ball attack in conjunction with the Reality Stone surge to create a looping combo, will only be allowed for three repetitions according to the official Battle for the Stones rules. A player who executes more than that number will be forced to forfeit the match.

According to the rules, the combo "is an unintended effect that circumvents the gameplay mechanics" of MvCI and that organizers feel this is the best answer to the current debate. It is also stated that future decisions like this will be decided "on a case by case basis."

Arika’s Mysterious Fighting Game: Evo impressions, recent updates & the future by Josh "funkdoc" Ballard, part 2

(Part one of this article can be found here.)

After talking at length about the gameplay systems found in Arika EX, Funkdoc looks at the individual characters found in the playable build as well as the way the game has changed as Arika continues to work on it.

Character Notes

The Evo build had 3 playable characters: Kairi, Hokuto (whose name was changed to Shirase since then), and Garuda. They got this honor by being the first three characters Arika created for Street Fighter EX, and I enjoyed all of them.
