Street Fighter characters coming to Monster Hunter: World

Armor sets that will allow hunters to look and sound like Ryu and Sakura will be coming to the newest entry in the Monster Hunter franchise starting in February 2018.

The sets are part of a collaboration between the two Capcom franchises that will also see Monster Hunter-inspired costumes coming to Street Fighter V.

To get the armor, players will have to complete specific quests to get "SFV tickets" that can then be used to forge the skins. Monster Hunter players who have Street Fighter V save data on their PlayStation 4 console will get the first shot at these missions, while other players will have to wait until the quests rotate in again at a later time. There will also premium shoryuken and hadoken gestures available for purchase at $3.99 each.

BBTag DLC, release decisions discussed in recent interview

A recent Famitsu interview with BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle Director Toshimichi Mori has unveiled new details about the choices the team at Arc System Works has made while developing the game.

In the interview (via Ryokutya and Siliconera, respectively), Mori points to many decisions being seemingly based on making the game more accessible for the largest number of people. The game will come out on console to avoid giving arcade players a head start with the game, and was designed with a gamepad as the main control scheme.

Furthermore, BBTag is being released at a lower price point so that players are encouraged to try the game out. While Mori did not discuss the exact price of the game's DLC characters, he did say that when combined with the cost of the base title buyers would only be spending slightly more than the cost of a normal game. He also said that if BBTag is successful, he would like to continue supporting the game in the future.

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle comes home on May 31, 2018, in Japan and June 5, 2018, for the rest of the world.

Arika teases "a guy of loyalty" for Fighting EX Layer

Arika has released a teaser trailer for the next character joining Fighting EX Layer.

Although donning a much different attire than in previous games, the character looks to be none other than Cracker Jack. Jack was formerly portrayed as a bouncer-turned bodyguard, but this Jack dresses as a cowboy.

If this is indeed C. Jack, the only Arika character from the original Street Fighter EX (outside of the wire-frame Cycloids) missing from Fighting EX Layer would be Pullum Purna. Readers can check out the trailer below and decide for themselves.

Fighting EX Layer is set for release on PlayStation 4 sometime in 2018.

New MvCI patch removes unblockable setups, adds small changes

A new update for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will remove back-turned unblockable setups in addition to several small adjustments for the game.

The big part of the patch is the removal of the unblockable setups, which were first uncovered in December 2017 and relied on the fact that characters could not block low while turning around. According to Capcom this bug has been fixed, which should eliminate those situations from the game.

In addition, backdashes for Dormammu and Hulk were adjusted, active switch entrances for Ultron and Captain Marvel were normalized and several small bugs were corrected. Readers can check out the full patch notes after the jump.

Review: HORI Fighting Edge arcade stick (PS4, PC)

The original HORI Fighting Edge, released back in 2012, was one of the coolest arcade sticks on the market at the time. It was HORI’s big attempt to not only make an original premium-level body design, but also introduce the company's proprietary high-quality arcade parts. When compared to other sticks during its release, the stick's edgy design and flashy features were something not found in other sticks made by other companies. In hindsight, the result turned out mostly successful. The stick was a popular choice for players. The parts were featured on future HORI sticks, with the buttons later upgraded on other models. But when consoles reached the next generation, a new version of the Fighting Edge was missing in action up until now.

HORI FIGHTING EDGE SCREENSHOTS

Exclusive to the PlayStation 4, the latest model of the Fighting Edge comes with changes in both the visual and playability departments. Some of these alterations are for the better, while others might irk you depending on your love for the original model. There are still many things left untouched to show that, in essence, it’s still the same old Fighting Edge, but for the next generation.

The latest issue of V-Jump magazine has revealed DBFZ's antagonist Android 21 will be part of the playable cast, but perhaps not in the form people expected.

Android 21 appears as a playable character in Dragon Ball FighterZ looking like a mash-up of several different fighters such as Majin Buu and Frieza. According to translations of the magazine, Android 21 has the ability to absorb traits from other characters which causes her to change forms.

Android 21's moves include Tasting Cut, which grabs the opponent and steals one of their moves, as well as the ability to turn opponents into sweets like Majin Buu.

Readers can check out images from the magazine after the jump.
