Pokkèn Tournament could potentially see an overseas release, says Pokèmon Company CEO

Pokkèn Tournament is an upcoming Pokèmon fighting game currently set for a Japanese arcade-only release next week. With Bandai Namco working alongside Nintendo on the project, many are wondering if we'll eventually see a stateside console release of the game.

In a recent Pokkèn Tournament documentary, Tsunekazu Ishihara -- president and CEO of the Pokemon Company -- joined in to shed some light on the production of the new fighting title. When asked if we'd ever see the game overseas, the idea was not ruled out by any means.

"I think the possibility definitely exists," the CEO stated. "Basically, as an arcade game, we'd like to push the boundaries of combining familiar Pokemon characters with new and unexpected ones in battle."

Former professional wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin gives shout out to K-Brad for CEO 2015 entrance

Unless you've been staying in a remote area of the woods, somewhere far from civilization, for the past week or so, chances are you heard about Kenneth "EG|K-Brad" Bradley's big entrance at CEO 2015. During the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament at the event, K-Brad recreated former professional wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin's walk-out, going as far as ending it with a Stone Cold Stunner on the announcer.

The video spread all across social media and quickly. It was so widespread, that even ESPN -- the largest sports news publication in the world -- reported about it on their site.

But the cherry on top would have been if Stone Cold Steve Austin himself saw the video and acknowledged it also. Well, that's exactly what happened. In a recent installment of The Steve Austin Show podcast, Stone Cold gave a shout out to K-Brad for reenacting his WWE entrance.

You can find a quick, 1-minute audio clip of Stone Cold praising Bradley for the epic homage after the jump. Check it out below!

Multiple updates to tiers sections - MKX list heavily changed, Tanya & Predator added, BlazBlue and Skullgirls reset, Aria available

With the deluge that E3 created this year, we had been a little late in updating our various tiers sections on the website, but we pulled out all of the stops today and got caught up with things.

First off, we added Tanya and Predator to the Mortal Kombat tier listings, plus the list has been shaken up a lot, as a number of characters have swung up or down low recently.

Note that Predator and Tanya barely have any votes currently from the community, so they're currently located in the middle of the list, but that should change soon, as readers start inputting some of their match ups.

Next up, since BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend was recently released, we've reset the tiers, but also added Lambda and Celica into the mix.

Skullgirls got their 2nd Encore out into the wild, and we've added Robo-Fortune into their roster, plus reset their tiers.

Finally, long awaited and requested, Aria is now available for Killer Instinct tier voting.

As always, any time we reset the tiers for a game, we archive them. You can find the archives on the index pages for those respective titles.

In this video, Ono states, "Brazil... When you think of Brazil.... WHEN YOU THINK OF BRAZIL..." That paired with the Blanka suit makes us lean heavily in a certain direction, though both Oro and Sean are Brazilian as well.

Still, when we "THINK OF BRAZIL," there's one, monstrous, green fighter in particular that comes to mind first. Hit the jump to see the video.

Skullgirls: 2nd Encore officially available for PlayStation 4; Robo Fortune joins in the fun

The wait is over as Skullgirls 2nd Encore finally comes out today for PlayStation 4.

The newest DLC character, Robo Fortune, is also available on Steam and PSN. She comes standard with the PS4 version of the game, but can be downloaded for free for the next three months. European players will have to wait until 7/9 for her.

You can view the game's patch notes as well as the launch trailer after the jump.

The Kiss of Death, Spine Rip and Toasty; see all the classic Fatalities, revamped for Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat's trademark kill moves have become pretty elaborate over the years, but the series wouldn't be what it is today if not for the iconic finishing moves of the original Mortal Kombat.

The classic Fatalities for Johnny Cage, Sonya, Sub-Zero and Scorpion are to be released today on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. You can download them, and relive the glory days of Mortal Kombat.

Truthfully speaking, having seen all the incredibly gory and over the top Fatalities of recent years, these four seem rather tame. Each character strikes their original win pose after performing their old Fatality, which takes some of us back quite a ways.

Street Fighter 5 beta will feature all six characters from E3 build, three stages, and no PS3 fightstick functionality

Combofiend over at Capcom Unity has posted an in-depth blog post this morning detailing the upcoming Street Fighter 5 beta, which begins on July 23rd at 6 p.m. PDT / 9 p.m. EDT / July 24th at 3 a.m. CEST, 10 a.m. JST.

First up, the characters; all six characters from the E3 build of the game will be playable during the beta test. Ryu, Chun-Li, M. Bison, and Nash will be available right out of the gate, and both Cammy and Birdie will become available on Saturday July 25th. Capcom is delaying these two characters in order to test out their content delivery system.

When players get past the start screen, they will immediately be sent to character select. Once a character is chosen, said player will enter a training room until an opponent is found, and then will return to the character select screen to choose a fighter for the match.

After the match is over, the player will be sent back to the training stage until another bout begins. Unfortunately, there will be no local versus during Street Fighter 5's beta test as this is mainly a test for online.
