Cease and desist sent to Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late hitbox viewer creator, Arc System Works also ask to take down tournament footage

Shortly after the Japanese release of Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late for the PS3, Kenbot creator Dantarion began working on a hitbox viewer project for the game that he finally put the finishing touches to last week, on August 15.

The completed project was available on, and it contained not only hitbox data, but also the game's complete frame data and additional information on move properties.

But if you go over to that URL now, you won't find any of all that great stuff to help you figure out all the ins and outs of UNIEL.

All you'll see is a brief note written by Dantarion himself, explaining why all of his hard work is no longer there.

At the request of ARC System Works I have removed the hitbox viewer. They requested that I remove not only all artwork from my site, but also all frame data, hitbox data, and information about move properties.

They also requested that I remove tournament footage from my youtube, linking me to URL's I embedded on my blog.

Odd afterimage-removal glitch causes Yang's Super Combo to lose its effectiveness after Yun's UC1 is performed in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Victor Rivera has discovered and documented on video a peculiar Ultra Street Fighter 4 glitch involving the afterimages that accompany some of Yun and Yang's attacks.

According to Victor, the afterimages that trail behind Yun when he does his dash punch may on occasion disappear completely after an Ultra Combo is performed -- and if your opponent happens to be Yang, this glitch will remove Yang's afterimages as well.

What begins innocuously as a simple graphical effect glitch turns out to possess very real gameplay repercussions, as Victor discovers that Yang's Seiei Enbu Super Combo ceases to function properly when the afterimages are gone, as you'll see in the video below.

Mago's master-class Yang goes YOLO with UC1, Vivi lands a 67-hit combo - Ultra Street Fighter 4 replays ft. Dieminion, Wolfkrone, Poongko

MCZ|Mago has been playing a lot of Yang lately. In fact, he's recently attained enough BP with his Yang to obtain the Master rank for that character in the arcade version of Ultra Street Fighter 4.

You can catch some of his Yang antics in action -- including an insane read where he punishes his opponent's block string with a prediction Ultra Combo -- with this set of USF4 replays from YogaFlame24 and i Shoryuken.

Also included in this set of replays is a match where Vivi lands a 67-hit combo on his opponent on Xbox Live (just in case you couldn't get enough of seeing the top Japanese Chun-Li player in action, after yesterday's videos), and other online ranked matches featuring Dieminion, Wolfkrone and Poongko.

Bandai Namco is making a new Marvel licensed video game - full-length trailer for Disk Wars Avengers: Ultimate Heroes

Looks like mobile games company Kabam's forthcoming Marvel Contest of Champions won't be the only fighting game this year to feature characters and licenses from the superhero comics giant.

Bandai Namco Games has recently announced in Japan a new action-slash-fighting game for the 3DS entitled Disk Wars Avengers: Ultimate Heroes, slated to be released later this year in November.

Judging from the game's simple mechanics and its target audience (kids), this is likely a quick cash-in on the popularity of the Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers anime that's currently airing in Japan, rather than a bona fide fighting game and one of the titles that Katsuhiro Harada and the Tekken Project development team are concurrently working on.

Sakurai says glitches are the reason Super Smash Bros. 3DS and Wii U have separate release dates

It is no secret that the upcoming Super Smash Bros. 3DS and Wii U will be released at separate times this year: the 3DS version on October 3rd, and the Wii U version this holiday season. Many may be wondering why both games won't be released simultaneously, and luckily, Smash Bros. series creator Masahiro Sakurai answered that question in his latest, semi-weekly column in Weekly Famitsu magazine.

According to Sakurai, the 3DS version of the game is currently in the debugging process -- a process in which a team of people test out the game in order to find any glitches for the programmers to fix. The Smash creator states that the debugging is done both in-house and overseas, and several hundred people are brought on to help check for bugs. From what Sakurai says, this process is incredibly grueling, and one of the main reasons both games are being released on different days.

"Debugging alone becomes a huge project. So much so that one of the biggest reasons for the separate release dates for the 3DS and Wii U versions was so that we could shift the debugging periods."

Hugo hits 8 standing medium punches in one combo, four claps juggle Dhalsim into U2: USF4's giant grappler looks really stylish in this CMV

Cjbqulix recently sent us a brand new Ultra Street Fighter 4 combo video featuring none other than the largest grappler in Street Fighter, Hugo.

Although many of Hugo's combo possibilities have already been explored, this video gets a bit more creative in its approach. In it, we see a number of interesting set-ups, including a combo that deals a ton of damage, landing eight standing medium punches in one go using Decapre's Ultra 1.

Additionally, Cjbqulix pushes the juggle limits by hitting four of Hugo's claps on an airborne Dhalsim, and still manages to land Ultra 2 to close it out.

There's a lot to be seen here, so check out this awesome Ultra Street Fighter 4 Hugo combo video below.

Will Brutalities return in Mortal Kombat X? 'Mmhmm, it's definitely a possibility *big grin*' - Boon hints at Sonya, says netcode has been optimized

In a recent interview with The Kombat Tether at Gamescom, NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon discussed the upcoming next-gen fighter, Mortal Kombat X. The MK creator touched on a variety of different subjects such as the game's netcode, the MKX roster, and even dropped a couple of cryptic hints at past features/characters we may see make a return.

We have heard previously that a certain "-ality" -- other than the Fatality, of course -- would make an appearance in Mortal Kombat X. Since Brutalities were originally intended to return in MK9, but did not make the cut due to time constraints, Boon was asked if we could expect to see them featured in the 10th installment of the Mortal Kombat series. His response leads us to believe that Brutalities may be back.

"Mmhmm. It's definitely a possibility. Yeah. *big grin*"

Pac-Man's Side+B can be used as air recovery move; move set and Meta Knight's Customizable Specials in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS detailed

This week's issue of Famitsu magazine has the in-depth details to Pac-Man's special moves in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS, and the good folks over at Kantopia have once again taken it upon themselves to translate all the juicy info for fans looking forward to the Nintendo party-slash-fighting game.

Between Famitsu's move list and the E3 character reveal trailer, it is now possible to piece together tricks and fight tactics for use with Pac-Man in the actual game.

For instance, Famitsu reveals that Pac-Man's Side+B special move allows him to travel in a straight line towards whichever direction you're currently holding the analog stick in -- similar to Pikachu's Quick Attack -- which means it can serve as an additional air recovery move, on top of Pac-Man's Up+B.

Other than Pac-Man's move list, this week's Famitsu also shed details on some of Meta Knight's customizable special moves, as well as on a few of the game's stages.

Vivi (Japan's best Chun-Li) fights tooth and nail with Daigo, finishes Evil Ryu with a 63-hit combo - Ultra Street Fighter 4 online match footage

If you're a Chun-Li player, chances are you've dreamed about pulling off an insanely long lightning kicks FADC combo -- the sort that combo maestro Desk is known for -- on a live human opponent in Super or Ultra Street Fighter 4 at least once in your life.

That's, of course, assuming you're not a top Chun player on the level of Japan's Vivi, who was previously ranked no.9 on the Japanese national leaderboards for Ultra Street Fighter 4 in the arcades, and is probably still the strongest Chun-Li player in the land of the rising sun.

Vivi doesn't have to dream about pulling off such a feat; he goes for it whenever the opportunity presents itself. One such opportunity came knocking on his doorstep last week, when the Japanese player was streaming his online matches on Nico Video -- as you'll see in the video below.

Apart from pulling off a 63-hit Chun-Li combo in an actual (online) match, on the same day Vivi also played a number of serious matches with MCZ|Daigo online. You'll find video of that embedded below as well.
