A new series of online BlazBlue Central Fiction events is helping raise awareness of players and content creators in the scene.

Exceed Assault is the creation of Chickzama, who wanted to show love for BlazBlue and get more players into the game.

The fourth Exceed Assault will happen on Sept. 28, 2017, with a three-player round robin joining the normal team battle. The round robin will feature Milk_Kaichou, Fame and Tectal Eastside competing, while the team showdown will pit Hibiki players NeoBuster, SuperKawaiiWeeb and Gigaitachi against Mai players Kyou-chan, Shaka and MetalWolf.

The event will start at 6 p.m. CDT (4 p.m. PDT, 7 p.m. EDT) with streaming on Logichole's Twitch channel and commentary by MiniMatt, ChaoticGamez and ZackOnestar.

During Tokyo Game Show 2017 Capcom showed off gameplay of the upcoming Monster Hunter character for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.

Monster Hunter fights with two small swords, a huge two-handed sword and a bow. She can fire arrows as projectiles on the ground, into the air like Hawkeye or while jumping. She has flurry attacks using the small swords as a special move and also has a command roll, either forward of backward, using all three punches or kicks. Her command normal, forward+heavy punch, is a slow, chargeable attack with the big sword which has armor on it.
