Combo Breaker 2017 will feature Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2

Combo Breaker has decided that it will feature Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 as its official tournament on the day of the game's full release.

At the end of April, organizers from Combo Breaker sent an email to players registered for the Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- tournament at the event asking them if they would prefer to play on the new version of the game, even though it is currently only available as a PlayStation Plus demo for PS4 users and will not release until the first day of the tournament.

The players apparently responded with an affirmative, and the official Combo Breaker website says organizers found "many [local promoters] were immediately switching to the latest version of the game."

For those players who are not satisfied with this change, they can contact the Combo Breaker staff by emailing combobreakerevent@gmail.com. Combo Breaker 2017 takes place May 26-28 in St. Charles, Illinois.

New trailer officially reveals Ed for Street Fighter V

Ed has officially been revealed for Street Fighter V, as Capcom released the character's offcial trailer and information about his V abilities.

Ed's V-Skill is Psycho Snatcher, which almost functions as a grappling hook and either pulls himself to opponents or pulls him to them depending on how long it is charged. His V-Trigger is Psycho Cannon, which shoots a slow-moving, multihit fireball out in front of him.

Ed's special moves include a dashing uppercut that almost resembles Balrog's and move that seems to function like a dragon punch. His moves also "have simple inputs; they only require simultaneous button presses, repeatedly pressing a button, or holding down a button." Readers can check out the trailer after the jump.

Eliza steps out of the darkness with gameplay on "Tekken Talk"

A recent Bandai Namco stream delivered more information about the female vampire who will serve as Tekken 7's preorder bonus character.

Mark "MarkMan" Julio and Maximilian joined Bandai Namco's Dalton Link to explore the character in depth during "Tekken Talk" and revealed that Eliza will have a super meter much like Akuma in T7.

Eliza will build this meter either through certain throws, which show the vampire biting foes, or by going into her sleep stance. While in sleep stance, Eliza slowly gains meter but can do nothing else and has some recovery before being able to act again. She can use her meter to create enhanced versions of some of her moves, create a super fireball or cancel some moves to continue pressure.

The stream also showed off more of the upcoming game's modes, including Story Mode, Jukebox, Gallery and Treasure Battle. Readers can check out the Twitch archive after the jump, with Eliza's gameplay coming between 16 and 32 minutes in the broadcast.
