Fulgore reveal trailer for Killer Instinct, character released on April 9th - Iron Galaxy taking over development for season 2

A new trailer showcasing Fulgore in Killer Instinct was just released, and it was revealed he'll be available to players starting on April 9, 2014.

The title update that brings Fulgore into the mix will also add Arcade Mode and online lobbies featuring eight-player rooms and spectating functionality.

Plus, Iron Galaxy Studios, the developers of Dive Kick and Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition, will be taking over for Double Helix Games as the main team behind Killer Instinct for season 2.

Decapre first character in Street Fighter 4 series who can combo into her air throw, Combofiend feels it will open up new style of offense

Decapre will be the first character in the Street Fighter 4 series who can combo into her air throw, outside of crumple Focus Attack setups.

She can begin striking the opponent on the ground, then launch them into the air using an attack and while they're still airborne, jump up and throw them back to the ground.

"I think when people try that out for the first time and see that she can actually combo air throws, it will open up a new style of offense," Peter 'Combofiend' Rosas told Polygon.

Capcom's Yoshinori Ono likely working on new fighting game title

Capcom's Yoshinori Ono is a master of cryptic tweets.

Ono's English isn't outstanding, and as such, there are a number of ways you can read into the things he has to say on Twitter.

Whether the perplexing nature of his tweets comes from his imperfect English skills, or his playful nature is matter of some debate, but a message he sent out today could potentially be a hint to get the FGC excited.

"At Capcom Taiwan's office. I'd like to return to scene of research and development by now... I'd be making new [fighting game] title. ;D" wrote Ono, who also snapped a photo of the Capcom Taiwan office.

There are a number of things this "new fighting game title," could be, although with the Hadouken Cabs skit being fresh on people's minds, many have wondered if some kind of Capcom fighting game announcement is incoming for the PlayStation 4.

Yoshinori probably sent out this latest tweet to get people talking and speculating on what he's working on, so feel free to have at it in the comments. You can find the message in question embedded after the jump.

Footage of Fuudo's Harry Potter cosplay kumite - feat. MOV and Eita playing SSF4 AE v2012

Making good on his promise, and showing that he definitely has a sense of humor, RZR|Fuudo dressed up as Harry Potter yesterday and participated in a Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 kumite.

For those who don't remember, Fuudo promised to cosplay as the famous movie/book character if he didn't place 7th or better in the 3rd Topanga A League — he placed 8th overall.

There's a bit of theatrics to go along with Fuudo's sets against Kuroda (Ryu), Eita (Akuma) and TH|MOV (Ken), you can find the footage after the break.

From Skullomania to R. Mika: OutsideXbox lists 9 characters that are 'better than Decapre' for Ultra Street Fighter 4

After waiting nearly six months for the reveal of Ultra Street Fighter 4's mysterious fifth character, many fans were... underwhelmed when Decapre, the Cammy-clone, was unveiled.

Although her play-style is very different from Cammy's, there are quite a few characters that would have gotten a warmer welcome if they had been added to the USF4 roster.

OutsideXbox put together a list of 9 characters they feel are better choices than Decapre, and although some of their selections are fairly obvious, there are a few that come straight out of left field that'll make you think.

You will find the video list after the break, and feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Super Smash Bros. 3DS with/without borders, Sakurai shows visual comparison; new 'giant attack item' revealed, can unleash tornadoes

Over the last couple of days, series creator Masahiro Sakurai took to Miiverse in order to reveal some new screen shots of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS. These two images are particularly interesting because they give us the first side-by-side look at the 3DS version with and without borders, and showcase a new battle item.

You can check out what the game will look like with the border option both enabled and disabled, below. Sakuai mentions that with these options, in conjunction with the different levels of 3D on the hardware itself, there is quite a bit of customization to be had.

Additionally, we see that a new "giant attack item" is being added to Super Smash Bros. Wii U. According to Sakurai, this weapon from Kid Icarus Uprising, called the Ore Club, can not only bash opponents into oblivion but also has the ability to unleash tornadoes.

Zoning vs. rushdown, pugilist vs. peace: Arturo Sanchez and Smug run a first-to-five set in SSF4 AE v2012

Typically, characters in fighting games fall into certain fighting-style archetypes: zoning, rushdown, grappler, mix up, etc. While many characters have a mixture of these elements, it isn't often that we get footage of two characters with such extreme archetypes, played at this high of a level.

PIE|Smug and TS|Arturo "Sabin" Sanchez recently squared off in a first-to-five, Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 set, and luckily, FinestFighters was able to capture all of the action.

Dudley is pretty much the epitome of a rushdown character in AE v2012, and Dhalsim is all about zoning. These two characters excel at their respective craft, and needless to say, it makes for a very entertaining match up.

If you'd like to catch this great SSF4 AE v2012 action, hit the jump.

Poll: Which 6 characters do you want to see in Killer Instinct season 2?

Killer Instinct season one is coming to an end very soon, with Fulgore, story mode, and online lobbies expected to drop some time this month. The Microsoft Studios team confirmed that the next update would be the final season 1 content, and we have also learned that the company plans to continue supporting Killer Instinct, bringing in a new development team once Double Helix Games' stint is up.

So, in anticipation of season 2, we'd like to ask each of you: which six characters do you most want to see added to Killer Instinct? We here at EventHubs have generated a poll for you to make your picks, and we are giving you six choices on account of the fact that season 1 also began with six characters.

Included are each of the remaining characters from KI1 and KI2, along with an option for a brand new character and a guest character. If you opt to choose one of these, please let us know what you have in mind in our comments section below.

You can cast your votes after the break.

'I will meditate, then destroy my enemies', Dhalsim tries to convince Pete Holmes that he is ready for the SF2 tournament

We're very happy to announce we've launched our second tiers section here on EventHubs, for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma.
