U.S. Will Have Two Qualifiers for Tekken 7 World Championship

It looks like there was more to the Tekken 7 location tests than players first thought.

Southern California and New York will each play host to a qualifying tournament for December's Tekken World Championships. The winner of each tournament will not only get a spot in the event, but also win a trip so that they can compete.

The first qualifier will take place at the Puente Hills Mall Round 1 in City of Industry, California on Oct. 3, with the New York tournament taking place at the Dave & Buster's in Times Square on Oct. 18.

According to MarkMan, both tournaments will also be streamed for players who cannot be in attendance.

Details such as tournament format and possible entry fee have not been released at this time but hopefully all possible information will be released as the event dates get closer.


Super Desperation Radio Episode 427 Archive Online

The latest episode of Super Desperation Radio is now available for watching on IPLAYWINNER'S YouTube channel.

And speaking of new characters, Street Fighter V's Rashid was also a topic as SDR talked about his gameplay and tried to figure out who the remaining SFV characters will be.

Finally, four players are being flown out to the Team St1ckBug event on Oct. 3, and SDR talked about movements in the airdash scene and a possible upcoming Xrd event for the Southwest.

Super Desperation Radio is live every Monday at 6:30 p.m. PST on Twitch and YouTube.

Review: Crown CWL-307ST Lever & CWB-207H Pushbutton

Crown (also known as Samducksa) is one of the manufacturers for arcade stick parts in South Korea. While more niche than that of fellow company Myoungshin and Japanese competitors Sanwa and Seimitsu, Crown has been reaching out. The company collaborated with Mad Catz on the Arcade FightStick KE series and has provided parts for international sellers. Its recent endeavors also help influence the production on new technology.

In time for Tekken 7's release in Korea back in March 2015, Crown made both a new lever as well as a new pushbutton. Now these products reached American shores for use in our arcade sticks. Do any of these products deserve your attention? You can find both reviews after the jump!

Inside Games is reporting that the newest Guilty Gear will be coming to home consoles in the first half of next year.

Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- is scheduled to launch before summer, and even more interesting is that the site reports the game will be coming to both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 consoles. This should calm the fears of those players who were assuming they would have to upgrade their system and sticks to play the new title.

No other information, such as pricing or a release date for other regions, is available at this time.

Rashid is Street Fighter V's Second New Character

Capcom has revealed another new entrant to the Street Fighter series: Rashid.

A Middle-Eastern fighter who he says he is "of the turbulent wind," Rashid moves around the screen quickly and attacks with moves that generate tornados or make him into a funnel cloud.

The first Middle-Eastern character in the Street Fighter series since Pullum Perna from the EX titles, Rashid was designed in collaboration with Pluto Games, the company that serves as Capcom's distributor in that region. 

No other information, such as his V-Trigger or V-Skill, is known about Rashid at this time. Check out the release trailer from IGN after the jump.

Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax Ignition Coming to JP Consoles Dec. 17

The updated version of Sega's crossover fighter will be coming home for Japanese audiences in December. Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax Ignition will be released on Dec. 17 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Vita consoles, and first-run copies will include a special downloadable system theme.

Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax Ignition adds new characters, new systems and rebalances the existing cast from the first DFC game. Ignition is getting an arcade update this fall, and it appears those changes will be included in the console release.

Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator Johnny Combo Video by MSY

One of the original Johnny combo makers in the older versions of Guilty Gear has returned to deliver a new video for Johnny's return to the series.

MSY has put together roughly five minutes of different scenarios showing just what the Xrd version of Johnny can do, and it is certainly a lot of damage. From continual mist cancels to jumping dust loops in the corner, it is clear that Jonny will be an imposing force in the new version of Guilty Gear Xrd.

Check out his video after the jump.

New Characters, Other Content Coming to Mortal Kombat X in 2016

It looks like Mortal Kombat X players will be getting new content, but not for roughly four months. After players speculated about Ed Boon's tweet on Sept. 2, NetherRealm has released a statement saying that new MKX content will be coming after the new year:

"The new content will include four new playable characters, skins and a new environment, all of which will be available in the first half of 2016." 

While the content is months away, players will undoubtedly be happy to see the game continue to be supported by NRS as it reaches its first anniversary.

Ed Boon Teases New Characters for Mortal Kombat X

Ed Boon loves to be cryptic on Twitter, dropping both hints and red herrings to followers about upcoming events and characters for his Mortal Kombat series. He hinted at Tremor becoming part of the MKX cast long before the game even came out, and has teased about the story mode cast becoming playable as well

Now, Boon has done it again, posting a tweet with the question, "Tomorrow?" and a picture of four shadowed figures. On the picture it simply reads "Who's Next?"

Are these four characters the formerly unplayable story mode cast such as Rain and Baraka? Are they four characters—new and old—that will make up Kombat Pack 2? Or is Boon simply messing with his audience again? Only time will tell.

Super Desperation Radio Episode 426 Archive Online

The latest episode of Super Desperation Radio is now available for watching on IPLAYWINNER'S YouTube channel.

In a world with "Hot Ryu," all other topics on Super Desperation Radio could only receive so much airtime. SDR discussed the new Street Fighter V costumes and look of the game in general before latching itself to the costume that started trending on Twitter.

Before that, however, SDR talked about the weekend's Summer Jam and SCR Prelude II events including the now legendary 13-0 that was handed out by SonicFox to Perfect Legend at their match in Philadelphia.

And speaking of Mortal Kombat, the crew discussed the new patch that is trying to remove most of the game's option selects and Ed Boon's tease for big news coming later in the week.

Super Desperation Radio is live every Monday at 6:30 p.m. PST on Twitch and YouTube.


Option Selects Gone? and Other Changes in New MKX Update

NetherRealm Studios has posted the list of changes coming to Mortal Kombat X in the next couple days, and it is rather extensive. Along with changes to each character designed to try and make every variation more viable, there are four specific fixes designed to remove option selects from the game:

- Removed the ability to add extra inputs while doing a normal attack 2in1 cancel which allowed some characters to have the special move cancel only occur on hit / block
- Removed the ability to have some specific input timings on a 2in1 cancel so it could come out on block but not come out on hit on some normal attacks
- Removed the ability to option select execute a special move or throw reversal after block stun while still holding the block button
- Removed the ability to option select execute a wakeup non enhanced special move attack, wakeup throw, or wakeup backdash while still holding down the block button

NetherRealm has said this patch will be the last for the forseeable future unless an emergency arises. Hit the jump for the complete list of changes.

But that is not all the MK news for this week, apparently. Series creator Ed Boon hinted on Twitter that "BIG (new) MK news" will be released sometime later this week.

Capcom Announces SFV Preorder DLC, Special Edition

North American players will be getting added bonuses for preordering Street Fighter V. Along with access to the SFV online beta, buyers can now receive one of four special "Battle" costumes depending on where they purchase the game.

Those who buy from GameStop will receive the Battle Costume for Ryu; Best Buy will offer one for Cammy; Amazon will give M. Bison some new clothes; and both the PlayStation Store and those who reserve the PC digital version will get Chun-Li a new outfit. These DLC costumes apply to both past and future reservations, so players who have already purchased will receive them. Check out the costumes in the gallery.

Capcom also announced the Street Fighter V special edition version of the game. For $99.99, players will receive a 10-inch painted Ryu statue, a 48-page hardcover art book and several download cards in addition to the game. The DLC cards will be for Udon Digital Comics, a soundtrack sample for SFV and a one-month subscription to the Capcom Fighters channel on Twitch.



PlayStation 3, XBox 360 Versions of Mortal Kombat X Cancelled

After delays pushed the last-gen version of the new Mortal Kombat game out of the original release window and then past the adjusted time frame, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has decided to end development of the title. In a statement on the Warner Bros. community forums, the company explained its decision:

After months of development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has come to the regrettable conclusion that we cannot release Mortal Kombat X for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.  Please know our teams worked diligently to meet the quality standards set by the current-gen versions of the game.  We were not able to get the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions to the quality expected of a Mortal Kombat game and are very sorry for not being able to deliver the products as originally planned. 

The company also said that anyone who preordered the game will receive a full refund.

While a disappointing announcement for those who do not yet have a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, the cancellation is not wholly surprising given that information about the game's development had stopped appearing in recent months. The PS3 and 360 versions of MKX were being created by High Voltage Software, the company that produced the PC port.
