Krillin and Piccolo added to Dragon Ball FighterZ roster

Two more characters are joining the fight in DBFZ as series icons Krillin and Piccolo were revealed in the latest issue of V-Jump magazine.

Piccolo is said to possess "a variety of methods to break the opponent’s guard," as he can stretch his arms to grab opponents and also can charge his beam attacks.

Krillin, meanwhile, has both low power and reach but he can use many different attacks including the Kamehameha and the unblockable Destructo Disc.

The article also briefly describes the upcoming title's online mode, which will contain chibi characters navigating a world much like Guilty Gear Xrd's online lobbies.

With Krillin and Piccolo revealed, the number of characters in DBFZ is nine, which is the same number that was said to be in the game's upcoming closed beta.

Players will be able to sign up for beta starting on July 26, 2017, for either Xbox One or PlayStation 4. Bandai Namco has not stated how many players will be allowed in the beta or exactly how long it will last.

Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] version 3.20 changes by Sourenga

The new balance patch for Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] has released in Japanese arcades ahead of the game's console release on July 20, and Twitter user Sourenga has translated the changes.

Players can find the original Japanese change list on the official UNIST website, and a link to the translations on Sourenga's Twitter.

Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 update adds new digital figures, improvements

A new patch has been released in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and 4 versions of Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 containing a big update to Digital Figure Mode along with improvements and bug fixes.

The update brings new characters and poses to Digital Figure Mode, including nonplayable characters such as Ariels, Zappa, Robo-Ky, Gabriel and more. These can all be earned through fishing like other models.

The rest of the update includes small changes, like the ability to see a combo's list of inputs in training mode via "Combo Recipe Display," and fixes to bugs that prevented players from receiving the money bonus for clearing Answer and Baiken's combo trials or sitting at a machine in an online lobby. 

Though currently not available outside Japan, the update should be heading to other regions soon. Arc System Works did not reveal details on when the Steam version of the patch is coming, but did note that more story mode content will be added to Rev 2 in a different upcoming update.

A brief history of Arika and its fighters by Josh "funkdoc" Ballard, part 4

(Links to the previous articles can be found here: one, two, three)

Part 4: Street Fighter EX3 and Looking Ahead

Full Disclosure: I am one of the biggest goddamn EX3 truthers in the world. It's one of my absolute favorite fighting games of all time and I could gush about it for days on end. I will try to keep that out of this section, though.

Released in 2000, Street Fighter EX3 was a first-generation PlayStation 2 exclusive. It sold better than you'd expect given the general state of fighting games at this point, since it was the only early PS2 fighter besides Tekken Tag Tournament. It's the only Arika fighter not to receive an arcade release, which has had major effects on its long-term reception compared to that of EX2+.
