In the revised HUD, there is a small indicator of your partner's health.

Gundam Versus is in development exclusively for the PlayStation 4. While there are no current plans to release the game outside Asia, Southeast Asian players can expect English support with Japanese voices.

New physical release of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on the way?

The digital release of UMvC3 may be getting some company in several months.

The Gamestop website has listings for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of UMvC3, physical copies that would cost consumers slightly more than the download at $29.99. Even more interesting is that the site claims the games will be available "only at Gamestop."

While nothing has been officially announced by Capcom at this time, Gamestop's projected release of March 31, 2017, would put it in the window announced for the Xbox One and PC releases of the title. Hopefully Capcom will clarify this information soon.

Review: Qanba Crystal arcade stick (PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC)

Earlier in 2016, the popular Chinese arcade stick manufacturer Qanba released its first PlayStation 4 model: the Drone. While the stick was made as a budget option for those new to fighting games, people were left wondering when the higher-end models would start arriving. I recently had the chance to try out the Crystal, the first of two made for dedicated players.

QANBA CRYSTAL ARCADE STICK SCREENSHOTS

Based on the Q2 series of arcade sticks, and a direct descendant of the Q2 Glow, the Crystal arcade stick is Qanba's second major offering for the PS4. While the Drone has a small form factor, the Crystal is bigger and more developed. On the surface, the Crystal does look similar to its predecessors but some of its changes, both visually and technologically, might help someone looking for a more fleshed-out arcade stick from Qanba.

Razer announces Panthera arcade stick for the PS4, available now

Only hours after Mark "MarkMan" Julio announced his work with the company and following hints of use from players such as Infiltration and Xian in recent months, Razer has formally announced its first arcade stick made for the PlayStation 4.

Called the Panthera, this is Razer's third arcade stick, succeeding the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of the Atrox line. This stick will be designed to work on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Using the Atrox as a basis, players can expect the Panthera to feature a detachable USB cable, easy internal access, an anti-slip rubber mat and all Sanwa Denshi arcade parts. Instead of the common green color palette artwork found in the Atrox sticks, the Panthera has shades of dark blue. When it comes to special controls such as Touch Pad and the Home button, they are all placed in front of the Vewlix layout. The Options/Start and Share/Select buttons are still on the right side for convenient access.

Previously known for only making controllers specifically for Microsoft's Xbox platforms, the Panthera joins the Raiju controller as the first two PS4 peripherals by the Taiwan-based company. Min-Liang Tan, Razer's Co-Founder and CEO, announced back in March that the company were working on PS4 products, including a stick, following the controversy of controller malfunctioning at Final Round 19.

You can order now directly on Razer's official store
