Andria Sang posted up some great impressions for Super Street Fighter 4: 3D Edition which is currently being shown at Nintendo World 2011. They mention that it is easily one of the best looking games so far for the new handheld system, where everything from the character select screen to the actual gameplay itself leverages the 3D technology. Sounds really cool! Check out the entire article by clicking here.

subt-L sent over a tip mentioning that Tekken 6: BR received the Best Income Award from the Amusement Journal for the second consecutive year. What does this mean? It means Tekken 6: BR is raking in the dough for NAMCO in Japanese arcades, even beating out the power house Gundam vs Gundam NEXT by a large margin. Check out more details from subt-L below.
Kim1234 uploaded another video of Daigo playing Yun, though this time he is up against Mago, who as most of you know has probably the best Fei Long in the world. With Fei Long's wide array of solid special and normal attacks, Yun has a hard time getting in to do any real damage -- dropping Genei-Jin combos never helps either!
A new video surfaced on the Mortal Kombat YouTube Channel asking the developers where they would take Mileena on a date if they had the chance. There are a few short bits of gameplay scattered through out as well, so if you're fiending for more MK9 footage, check this one out when you have a few minutes to spare.

Looks like someone at Planet Zero in Houston, TX snagged the ending video for Yun & Yang for Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition. It's all in Japanese so not sure what they are saying but more than that: who is the character at the end of the video?
Thanks to Reno on Twitter for the tip!

Capcom-Unity's Live Stream of Marvel vs Capcom 3 is now up and running for everyone to check out! I'm not entirely sure who is playing or what they have planned for later on, but as far as I know this should be up for most of the day. You can check it out after the break or by clicking HERE.
Capcom-Unity has a cool Q&A with artist Shinkiro, whose art you've probably seen on a number of different Capcom titles such as Tatsunoko vs Capcom. Shinkiro also put together an awesome promotional piece for Marvel vs Capcom 3 which you can check out to the left there.
Thanks to Fersis on Twitter for linking to the high-res version of this piece. Enjoy!
The SSF4: AE YouTube Channel keeps bringin' the goods with a few new videos of Daigo and Tokido both playing Yun. Most of us have been waiting patiently to see Daigo's Yun, and to be honest, I'm not really seeing anything I haven't seen in other videos. Both players just play Yun very solid and you can see many of his combos put him in great positioning continue pressuring the opponent.
That said, clocking in at around 45K BP, Daigo seems to have about two times as much BP as most players do at this point so you know he has been grindin'! Check out both videos below.
A ton of previews and a handful of new videos for Marvel vs Capcom 3 surfaced all around the web today, and wanted to give you guys a few quick links to check out. The videos contain a lot of new gameplay, but nothing super high level, but definitely worth checking out as well.
BLG Filipino Champ and Koogy at Brokentier just put the finishing touches on the January 2011 SSF4 Tier List and this might be the last update before we move onto tracking Arcade Edition match-ups. We've made some adjustments not only to the data, of course, but also the chart itself, so hopefully it will be a little easier to read now.
Check out individual match-ups by clicking the image above. Quick-look rankings are below.
A: Akuma, Fei-Long, Guile, Cammy, Chun-Li, Dictator, Boxer, E. Honda, Abel
B: Ryu, Rufus, Dhalsim, C. Viper, Seth, Zangief, Ibuki, Sagat, Dudley, Blanka, DeeJay, Juri, Adon, Ken
C: Rose, Claw, El Fuerte, Guy, T. Hawk
D: Cody, Gouken, Gen, Makoto, Sakura, Dan, Hakan

Mr. Murder Face himself posted another update to his blog today, and while short on words, he did upload a cool video between Naruo (Ryu) and Soramiso (Juri). He also mentions Yun is "very nice" because of his vortex after up-kicks and the fact you can end combos with up-kicks.
Also, he mentioned on a previous entry that he would be attending Final Round, and a new trailer was just released confirming that. Check out both the match video and trailer after the break!
Matchup Breakdown: Vega/Claw vs. Rufus by Marcos “El Cubano Loco” Blanco
This matchup frustrated me and many other Claw players probably just as much as Blanka did back in the Vanilla SF4 days. It wasn’t an impossible matchup to overcome, but it definitely was far from an easy ride, especially if the Rufus player knew how to shut down Vega’s offense and prey upon his not so stellar defense.
Thankfully in Super SF4, the matchup went from being a 7-3 nightmare in Rufus’ favor to now…well Rufus still has the edge, but now it is a more manageable 6-4 endeavor since Rufus has a few nerfs whereas Vega has nothing but buffs, namely his mask and claw staying on longer, a bigger hit box on his EX Flying Barcelona Attack (FBA), a buffed Ultra 1 and his extremely useful Ultra 2.
Tokido says Hakan is still the worst but you wouldn't be able to tell after watching this video. Check it out below and find more SSF4: AE videos from Japan on Kim1234's channel.
