Arcana Heart 3: Love Max!!!!! Lacks Cross-Region Online Play

Ed Boon Hinting at New MKX Character?

Ed Boon likes to be cryptic. In past Mortal Kombat games there have often been secrets to uncover based on riddles or visual hints with little explanation. As time has moved on, he has taken to using his Twitter account to tease fans with possible revelations for his newest games. And today is no different.

This morning, Boon tweeted a picture of an old World Championship Wrestling grappler with the accompanying text:

"Hmmm.... he reminds me of someone. "

The figure, Super Giant Ninja, was a send-up of Mortal Kombat's Scorpion, but with slightly muted attire so as not to breach the copyright then held by Midway. With Scorpion already confirmed for MKX, several posters on Twitter are suggesting Boon may be hinting at the return of Tremor, a ninja clad in brown who first appeared in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces and made a cameo in the expanded challenge tower in the Vita version of Mortal Kombat 9. Whether that is true or Boon is simply playing with his audience remains to be seen.

Bandai Namco Reveals Catalina, More Details for Tekken 7

Avoiding the Puddle is reporting that during a Tekken 7 panel on the Mad Catz stream during Tokyo Game Show, Katsuhiro Harada discussed several details of the upcoming title including a new character named Catalina. The character, who will be a savate-style fighter from Latin America, was described as a loud-mouthed talker in the game and will also be one of several 'beginner-friendly' selections in T7.

Catalina will be playable at the October location tests for Tekken 7 in Japan and, according to Fighters Generation, so will an as-yet-unnamed new character that will "emphasize a brand new mechanic which the TEKKEN team hasn't tried before" but that may be familiar to 2-D fighting gamers. This character may show off one of the two new systems that Harada confirmed will be a part of Tekken 7.

Avoiding the Puddle has also created a short video talking about the Tekken 7 reveals, and what they may mean for the game. Check it out after the jump.

As an easy-to-install plugin to the JLF, it replaces the normal gate found on the JLF and players can also remove the stock JLF switches. It will require both a normal JLF harness as well as an additional 5v harness to properly power the accessory.

Still in development phase, the unnamed JLF add-on will be available sometime this year. You can check out screenshots in the link above.

Supercade Closing Down in October

Damien "Damdai" Dallidenas' peer-to-peer-based fighting game program Supercade will be closing this coming October.

"I've spent a lot of money keeping it running over the years, long after I lost interest in the project, and I don't want to do that anymore," he wrote on Supercade's front page. Damdai also mentioned that he will be trying to have someone take over hosting duties before the closure.

Despite the shutdown, Damdai suggested that Supercade players migrate to alternative online programs such as GGPO or the Chinese-based Super Arcade (formerly ArcLive).

Supercade, similar to GGPO, allows players to compete with one another online in multiple fighting games using an arcade emulator. It supported games made for SNK's Neo Geo MVS as well as Capcom's CPS-2 and CPS-3 platforms. In addition to full online support, Supercade features a replay system in which players can download their played matches from the website.

Make sure to enjoy the last weeks of Supercade by downloading and playing!
