Injustice 2 coming to PC, open beta forthcoming

[Update, 4:52 p.m. CDT]: The official Injustice Twitter account has stated that the beta will not begin on Oct. 25 as originally stated. The account has offered no new start date at this time.

There are currently no further details on the beta's length or when Injustice 2 will release on PC at this time.

The King of Fighters Neowave coming to Xbox One with 12 other original backwards compatible Xbox games

Microsoft's initiative to allow games from the original Xbox to work with their Xbox One systems will begin tomorrow with 13 games; one of them being one of the more uncommon games in The King of Fighters series.

The King of Fighters Neowave was chosen along with more recognizable hits such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Ninja Gaiden Black, Psychonauts and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time as the first set of backwards compatible original Xbox games. These games, and others in the future, are made to work with Microsoft's latest systems, including the upcoming Xbox One X.

According to IGN's Ryan McCaffery, these games have been "enhanced with 1080p resolution, higher and/or smoother framerates, and faster loading times." While there is no direct comparison for Neowave specifically, IGN's article does have some videos showing some changes to other games to give you an idea of the enhancements. Latency hasn't been addressed in the article. Some of these games, including Neowave, had Xbox Live support but due to the service shutting down in 2010, the featured games lack this online ability.

With Neowave being part of this initial run of backwards compatible Xbox games, there are some more KOF and other SNK fighting games that haven't been given the updated treatment yet. The original Xbox also carried other fighters such as Soulcalibur II, Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO, Capcom Fighting Evolution and Street Fighter Anniversary Collection that can potentially come to the backwards compatibility list in the future.

Details leak on Dragon Ball FighterZ versions, U.S. release date?

[Update, 11:40 a.m. CDT]: Bandai Namco has confirmed both the game's release date as Jan. 26, 2018, and the details of the different editions making this news no longer a rumor.

The preorder page on the Microsoft website for Dragon Ball FighterZ has included many details about the game that have not yet been officially released by publisher Bandai Namco or developer Arc System Works.

For starters, the game's U.S. release date is scheduled for Jan. 25, 2018, a week before the game comes out in Japan. More interestingly, the game's Ultimate Edition includes in its price a fighters pack for eight new characters, a music pack with 11 songs from the anime and a commentator voice pack.

The roster for DBFZ has not been finalized but it is clear—if the details are accurate—that Bandai Namco and Arc System Works plan to be adding content at a brisk pace once the game is released. However, Xbox has had incorrect releases dates on its site before, so for now readers should treat at least some of this information with skepticism.

Along with new character and account customizations featuring the Bullet Club, Taguchi Japan and King's Rainmaker shirt, Tekken 7 will also be getting a new outfit and rage art for Lars Alexandersson. Both the outfit and special "sling blade" rage art come from popular NJPW wrestler Hiroshi Tanahashi, who uses the move as one of his signature attacks. The game will also play Tanahashi's theme, "Love & Energy," when Lars uses the outfit.

The content will be launching on the arcade version of Tekken 7 on Nov. 18, 2017. There is currently no news as to whether the content will be included in an update for the console and Steam versions of the game, but as New Japan content was included before it seems like a possibility.

Gameplay details reveal the secrets of Zeku's ninjutsu

Capcom has posted gameplay details on Zeku ahead of his release in Street Fighter V on Oct. 24, giving players more information on the character's moves and abilities.

Zeku's ability to switch from his older form to his younger comes from his V-Skill, which also teleports him either in front of or behind his opponent depending on the input. Zeku's two forms are very different: in his older form Zeku has slower moves but retains a flip move similar to Guy's for mixup opportunities, while in his younger form he is much quicker and has a short run like his student.

Zeku's V-Trigger, meanwhile, is a special dash that allows him to follow up with a "custom combo that deals additional hits." His V-Trigger does not change depending on whether is he young or old.

As with other characters, Zeku will release with both a Story and Battle costume but he will have a Nostalgia costume as well. For more information, including pictures and gifs of Zeku's abilities in action, readers can head over to Capcom Unity.
