Mad Catz Planning to Release Namco Noir Panel for Tournament Edition 2 Sticks & Street Fighter V-branded FightPads

Mad Catz has some new things up its sleeve for those who want a different look in their sticks or have been awaiting a new version of the FightPad.

Compatible on all versions of the Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2, Mad Catz will offer an alternative layout panel called the Type-N. Based on the layout from Namco Noir arcade cabinets, it replaces the Taito Vewlix panel. The Noir layout spaces out the lever and pushbuttons while the latter parts are curved instead of being mostly straightened. Stay tuned as it's likely coming in the very near future.

In preparation for Street Fighter V, Mad Catz is currently working to have a FightPad for PlayStation 4 available on the game's release. Other platforms will be considered following its availability. No other details have been revealed.

Ed Boon Teasing Mortal Kombat X's Unplayable Story Characters Appearing as Possible Future DLC

While Mortal Kombat X released a week ago, the series creator has hinted at more chararacters beyond the coming four in the Kombat Pack.

On Twitter, Ed Boon was asked if unplayable characters featured in the Story mode will become available for players. Boon responded, "[You] mean like a 'story pack'?" The interest came out of the actions from a user who was able to replace playable character assets from the PC version with story mode fighters like Rain, Baraka and Sindel.

Before the tweet, Boon also teased during his visit to Twin Galaxies Live.

Developer NetherRealm Studios is known for providing more downloadable characters following their first wave of kombatants. Both Zatanna and Martian Manhunter were featured as additional downloadable content following the original four planned in Injustice: Gods Among Us due to fan demand.

While the availability of these characters is still up in the air, the teases are enough to let players anticipate what is to come.

Super Desperation Radio Episode 409 Archive Online

The latest episode of Super Desperation Radio is now available for watching on IPLAYWINNER'S YouTube channel.

It was a drama-filled SDR as Hellpockets brought up the recent Smash Bros. Sandstorm tournament in Arizona and its myriad problems, along with the recent Twitter trash talk between Perfect Legend and SonicFox.

That conversation brought up the often-cited conversation about "fundamentals," and SDR discussed what that means (and doesn't mean) in today's fighting games. This segued into a conversation about games past and present, which allowed SuperFX to alert listeners to TheBeautifulDude's efforts to defeat the first Castlevania game.

Lastly, the recent Shoryuken call for Evo volunteers has seemingly kicked the hornets' nest, and SDR talked about the positives and negatives of volunteers, and how to possibly fix the system.

Super Desperation Radio is live every Monday at 6:30 p.m. PST on Twitch and YouTube.

PC Version of Mortal Kombat X Modded to Have Rain, Corrupted Shinnok & More Playable

With Mortal Kombat X now available, people have been trying out much of the cast including characters not meant to be usually accessible.

A user by the name of XVermillion modded the PC version of Mortal Kombat X to allow characters Baraka, Sindel and Rain to be playable outside of their computer-controlled appearances in the Story Mode. XVermillion tricked the game by replacing character files with one of the Story Mode characters. These three characters feature their own moveset much like their iterations in the ninth edition of Mortal Kombat. These characters do not feature different variants.

The final boss version of Shinnok has also been modded to be playable. For him and the aforementioned three characters, videos will be available after the jump!

Series creator Ed Boon when visiting the Twin Galaxies Live stream hinted at the possibility of some of these characters coming in the future. Currently, Jason Vorhees, Tremor, the Predator and Tanya are the characters coming as part of the Kombat Pack.
