UPDATE: Mortal Kombat DLC Characters

Yesterday I posted the news (via GamePro, CVG) that the first round of DLC for Mortal Kombat would include Kintaro, Lady in Red and Kenshi. The "Lady in Red" and Kenshi have since been confirmed by NetherRealm, but it appears that the info from GamePro regarding Kintaro was wrong.

When I posted the article yesterday, I had apparently mistaken what producer Hans Lo said at the end of CVG's interview -- before it was removed -- as confirmation that Kintaro was in the works as DLC. As TRMK points out, CVG stated that Kintaro was planned, but didn't go into any detail beyond that. At any rate, that info is incorrect.

MVC3: Short Combo Video by Desk

Desk put together a short MVC3 combo video dubbed, well, MVC3: Short Combo Video. The title within the video mentions these are "leftover" combos from the numerous videos he's already released, and rightfully so -- some of the stuff might look a little familiar. That being said, there are a lot of cool combos in this one, some arguably more practical than any others in the previous videos he's released. Check it out after the break.

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition Rated by BBFC

Eurogamer reported this morning that the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) has not only confirmed Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition on consoles over in the UK, but also pegged a general release date. According to the BBFC listing, SSF4: AE is due out June 24 in the UK.

We all knew this is coming, especially considering Korea's ratings board rated it earlier this month, but it's still nice to know that it appears we'll all be getting our hands on a console copy of SSF4: AE soon enough. Whether it'll arrive in DLC format or on disc is still up in the air, though. More info is expected out of Captivate in April.

IPW Feature: Deadpool/Chris/Dante Team Analysis and Breakdown Part One

Like guns, swords, bazookas and more guns? Then you will love this article. In a four part segment, I'll be breaking down the dynamic of a current team I'm playing, with this article being focused on teams and each subsequent part outlining the utility of a specific character. Though the article will be spotlighting a specific team, I want to urge people to read on even if you don't share a common character preference, as you might find useful tips in creating a team or simple things you need to keep in mind when searching for a compatible trio.

As the title suggests, I will be explaining the team consisting of Deadpool “type y” on point, Chris “type b” as my utility character, and Dante “type a” as my anchor. Later, I will go on to what this means and why I choose them. For now I want to explain the reasoning behind this team's construction, starting with the point character.
