Arc System Works developing Dragon Ball fighter for 2018

Bandai Namco will release "Dragon Ball Fighters," a 2.5-D fighting game based on the property and developed by Arc System Works, in 2018.

This news comes from a Japanese press release that was seemingly shared ahead of its official date of June 12, 2017. According to Gematsu, the game will feature a three-versus-three team battle system and the high-speed combat that is a hallmark of the Dragon Ball series.

The choice of 2.5-D was made because "it has a broader range of expression as they can shift camera angles and incorporate a lot of unique production not possible in 2D [sic] alone." The game is currently scheduled for release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms.

Readers can view the archived press release at Gematsu.

Injustice 2's June update brings fixes, hints at upcoming DLC

Injustice 2's June update delivered more than fans were expecting when it went live on June 5.

In addition to fixing many bugs throughout the game and tweaking a few aspects of one or two characters, the game also temporarily changed the character select screen to reveal the silhouettes of all the upcoming downloadable characters before being reverted to its original appearance.

While not all of the DLC fighters could be identified, two distinct head shapes seem to indicate the inclusion of both Black Manta and Raiden to the game and a tiny fighter who did not even fit the whole character portrait looks to be The Atom.

While Red Hood is not part of the June update, the official Injustice 2 Twitter account assures fans that more news is coming soon. Readers who want to speculate on the upcoming fighters can check out a screenshot of the altered character select after the jump.

Files relating to possible DLC found in Tekken 7

Modders working with the PC version of Tekken 7 have found files that may reveal some of the game's upcoming downloadable content.

According to Avoiding the Puddle, sounds files for Tekken Bowl have been found along with other files that seem to indicate swimsuit, Idolmaster and school uniform costumes will be coming to the game. Furthermore, there are also files pertaining to T7's guest characters, but not much is able to be gleaned from them other than the fact that the first guest character has assets that indicate both ground and air projectiles along with the ability to use meter.

It is important to note, however, that these files guarantee nothing, as games often release with files relating to incomplete or scrapped ideas. On the other hand, readers can feel free to speculate on the content coming in the game's first two DLC packs during the summer and winter of 2017.

Digital Foundry checks out graphical power of Tekken 7 & its predecessors

The go-to people for graphics analysis at Digital Foundry got the chance to show off how each version of Tekken 7 is running and made a visual retrospective of the series.

DF's Thomas Morgan explains in detail how the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro and PC differ. This includes variances in resolution, post-processing effects and load times. A full text analysis, with screenshot comparisons, can be found here.

Dave Bierton talks about the evolution of the series and the hardware that powers each game. While Tekken has been a multiplatform series in recent entries, it has been one of the franchises that grew alongside Sony's PlayStation line of consoles before that shift. This growth starts all the way back at the original Tekken for the first PS system and the similar Namco System 11 arcade hardware.

Videos for the Tekken 7 graphical analysis and the series/tech evolution can be found after the jump!

'Execution Woes' takes on micro-dashing

Guilty Gear player and commentator Samifish's ongoing journal dedicated to improving his own execution in fighting games has now added an entry on micro-dashes.

While simple in theory—a micro-dash is just a small dash used to make moves combo when they otherwise would not—micro-dashes can be a tough concept for players to understand and execute properly.

Much like in his first entry, Samifish breaks his problem with a micro-dash combo into pieces and describes the thought process by which he tackles each issue individually until he is successful.

Aris explains picking a character in Tekken 7

Avoiding the Puddle's Aris recently answered a question of who new players should play in Tekken 7 with some choice words.

Instead of focusing strictly on tiers or character strength, Aris said players should find a character they like and stick with it. He said that the hardest part of playing Tekken will be learning to compete with players of higher skill so players should find a fighter they connect with most.

Aris also noted that in short sets like tournaments all characters have a chance to win and that tier lists often represent success in long sets. Readers can check out Aris' short explanation after the jump.

Leaked MvCI roster has 28 characters, leaves questions

A recent post on NeoGaf purports to reveal the entire base cast of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, only days ahead of what is surely to be a big week for Capcom at E3 2017.

The revealed sides are Ant-Man, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Gamorra, Hawkeye, Hulk, Iron Man, Nova, Rocket/Groot, Spider-Man, Thanos, Thor and Ultron for Marvel and Arthur, Chris, Chun-Li, Dante, Firebrand, Jedah, Monster Hunter, Morrigan, Nemesis, Ryu, Spencer, Strider Hiryu and X for Capcom. There is also one more unknown character for Capcom, and the list doesn't count Sigma as he is the game's first DLC character.

The list is interesting not only because of its size, which is more in line with the company's Tatsunoko vs. Capcom offering than Marvel vs. Capcom 2 or 3, but also because of some surprising inclusions. Nemesis returns from MvC3 over Jill and Wesker, both Arthur and Firebrand make a comeback and Monster Hunter will receive its first representative. 

It also throws possible leaks from the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite variant covers into disarray, as characters such as Deadpool, Black Panther are nowhere to be found. Venom, meanwhile, is at least planned for DLC.

As with all leaks, nothing is confirmed for now, but hopefully Capcom will put all the rumors to rest at E3.
