Brook releases Nintendo Switch compatibility firmware for Wii U Super Converters

If you are looking for a simple solution to using your controller or arcade stick for the Nintendo Switch, Brook added compatibility to two of its existing converters.

The Taiwan-based company released firmware for its Wii U Super Converters to allow for native Switch support. The converter acts as a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller when plugged into the system. Not only should players be able to play most Switch games including Ultra Street Fighter II with ease, but they should also be able to navigate the system's main menu.

This is a different situation from that of the Brook Universal Fighting Board working on the current 3.0 console update, where the board simulates the Hori Pokkén Tournament pad. This mode works only in a game and can't work with the system's UI.

The Switch firmware can be found here. Brook's Wii U Super Converters for PlayStation 3/PlayStation 4 and Xbox 360/Xbox One are available now on Arcade Shock and Paradise Arcade Shop!

Theo joins the Echo Fox roster

Echo Fox has announced another high-profile signing from the NetherRealm community in the form of Theo.

The player formerly known as Emperor Theo was one of the strongest players on the West Coast for the original Injustice, dominating the title at Wednesday Night Fights, placing highly at major events and tying for seventh place at Evolution 2014.

While Theo took a hiatus during Mortal Kombat X, "he is back with a vengeance for Injustice 2," Echo Fox team manager Antonio Javier said in an announcement video. The new signee has already made his mark, placing fifth at CEO 2017 after putting tournament favorite and now-teammate Sonic Fox into losers.

Theo will join Scar and SonicFox as the third member of Echo Fox's Injustice team.

A brief history of Arika and its fighters by Josh "funkdoc" Ballard, part 3

Part 3: Fighting Layer

Fighting Layer was released in 1998, though a bit later than the original version of EX2. It was published by Namco, whereas all of the EX games were published by Capcom. It remains a highly obscure game since it didn't have the Street Fighter name to draw player attention. Being a Japan-only and arcade-only release, it still sees occasional play there but is hardly touched elsewhere. It may be known best for the fact that Arika used Blair & Allen in this game instead of EX2 and 3.

This game retains the super cancels and general feel of the EX series but is very much its own creature. The most obvious difference lies in the movement: Fighting Layer has dashes and sidesteps. Additionally, Guard Breaks have been replaced with universal overheads that don't cost meter and will stun crouching opponents for a follow-up combo. Most characters have Target Combos, often from repeatedly pressing LP. These can usually combo into specials and supers so they're important for hit confirms. There is also a universal wakeup option called the Hard Reversal, which costs meter but is invincible for an extremely long time and can be performed early in the knockdown state. This game doesn't have as many traditional reversals as EX, hence the need for this feature.

Sub-Zero will be released on July 11, 2017, according to a tweet from NetherRealm Studios Creative Director and Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon. The character was first revealed in early May and a gameplay trailer appeared on June 14.

Although he will be released before the Evolution, players will not see Sub-Zero at the event as DLC characters are banned in Injustice 2 tournament play until 30 days after their release.

Learn how to play Dissidia with a new tutorial from Square Enix

The makers of Final Fantasy have released a new video showing viewers how to play the upcoming Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.

The tutorial is aimed squarely at players new to the franchise as it covers the basics of Dissidia's gameplay, from picking a character to what action each button on the PlayStation 4 controller performs. It also explains all the parts of Dissidia's in-game display and how a team can win the match.

Interestingly enough, the tutorial ends telling players to "apply all this in the demo," but Square Enix has made no mention of releasing a demo of Dissidia to the public. It's possible that the phrase is simply a holdover from E3 2017 where a playable version of the title was present, but SE has made no official statement at this time.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is scheduled for release sometime in early 2018 for PlayStation 4. Readers can check out the tutorial after the jump.

Dealing with Lucky Chloe "kick up" by Bloodhawk

New York's Bloodhawk has created a video designed to help people who are having problems against Lucky Chloe in Tekken 7.

Done out of backturn, Lucky Chloe's "kick up" is a move that is not only a juggle starter that leads to big damage, but is also safe on block.

In an almost seven-minute video, BloodHawk shows how players can find options that will interrupt and punish the move for their character and points out general movement choices that can help avoid a potential mixup. Readers can check out the video after the jump.

Tekken 7 for Steam updated with bug, online fixes

The first update for the PC version of Tekken 7 has rolled out with fixes for both online and offline play.

Most of the updates fix actual problems with using the game, such as keyboards becoming unresponsive and Kazuya's model partially disappearing at times when customized. Other fixes, however, are designed to prevent players from getting matched with "hackers" or to allow competitors find themselves on the leaderboards.

Also added are changes to Nina's Ivory Cutter, Eddy's Rage Art and one of Miguel's Power Crush moves. No details are provided but the Nina change is likely the one that came to consoles earlier this month.

The small list of fixes can be found after the jump.

Nintendo Switch 3.0 update brings Pokkén Pro Pad &, inadvertently, Brook Universal Fighting Board compatibility

The new major update for the Nintendo Switch discreetly introduces special controller compatibility including one popular multiplatform board.

The 3.0 firmware for the Switch includes various functionality changes and additions for the system. It also had an unlisted feature by allowing support for the Wii U Pokkén Pro Pad by Hori. This is very likely to prepare for the release of Pokkén Tournament DX in September of this year. The only caveat is that it might require the Switch's Joycons to navigate outside the games.

Owners of the Brook Universal Fighting Board should know that the PCB can also work with the updated Switch. Since one of the UFB's modes emulates a Pokkén Pro Pad, players can press and hold the 1K/LK button while plugging into the Switch. From tests, one player noted that the UFB does work with Ultra Street Fighter II. Those who updated the UFB to the latest firmware or recently bought the board should have Pokkén Pro Pad support already installed.

As of recent memory, Brook has been working on Switch compatibility with their Wii U Super Converters with new firmware planned in the near future.

NYC Fab joins Fable eSports

After returning to major competitive play with Tekken 7 at CEO 2017, Shaun "NYC Fab" Swain has signed with Fable eSports.

Swain was one of the top players in the U.S. Tekken scene during Tekken 6, and remained a strong player into Tekken Tag Tournament 2 before taking a hiatus from major competition. His fifth-place showing at CEO is a strong indicator of his return, and he promises "bob and miguel will be ready" going forward.

"I'm proud to announce that I am apart of the @FableGG family!" Swain said on Twitter. "This is a blessing and I look forward to working with the organization!"
