BeasTV unveils trailer for Project 9road

Daigo Umehara and his BeasTV have released a trailer announcing a new upcoming work, Project 9road.

The cryptic teaser for the project speaks of a steel mill explosion in 2011 and the mystery surrounding its circumstances. While it is uncertain what the premise will have to do with fighting games, veteran players Eita and Kuroda are involved in the endeavor.

The trailer speaks of trying to find "the man in the iron mask," a likely reference to Street Fighter III: Third Strike's Q, a character known as Kuroda's signature choice in the game.

Readers can check out the trailer after the jump.

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."
