New Mewtwo screenshots added to official Super Smash Bros. 4 site, check out the trailers for this Psychic Pokemon and Lucas here

With the Nintendo Direct on April 1st came the announcement of both returning fighters Mewtwo and Lucas. Coming this month, Mewtwo has now also made his debut on the Super Smash Bros. 4 website along with a new collection of screenshots.

While Lucas unfortunately won't be a viable option for Evolution 2015, we can still get excited by watching his trailer. And because Mewtwo comes out very soon, it definitely doesn't hurt to admire these screenshots Nintendo has released of him as seen in both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game.

Get a start with these images, then make sure to enjoy both trailers below.

Lucas is banned from EVO 2015's Super Smash Bros. 4 tournament

Just yesterday, it was announced that Lucas -- Mother 3's main protagonist -- will be added to the playable Super Smash Bros. 4 roster as DLC.

While no solid release date for the character was given, Nintendo did state that he will become available to the public sometime in June. This begs the question: With EVO 2015 taking place the following month, will Lucas be allowed in the Super Smash Bros. 4 tournament?

As it turns out, no, he won't. According to Joey "Mr. Wizard" Cuellar -- one of the organizers of the event -- Lucas will be banned from tournament play.

Cuellar stated on Twitter that the character's release window is too close to the event, and as a result, players will not have adequate time to train against him. He did mention, however, that the balance update set to drop with Mewtwo later this month will be in full effect for EVO 2015.

Check out the tweet after the jump.

Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden's latest trailer confirms 20 of the game's playable fighters

Publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment and developer Arc System Works's upcoming 3DS 2D fighting game Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden was briefly touched on in today's Nintendo Direct broadcast for Japan.

During Nintendo Direct, approximately 90 seconds' worth of in-game footage from the fighter was shown, and after the broadcast was over, a new three-minute-long trailer was also published on the Nintendo Japan channel.

What's interesting about this new trailer is that it reveals for the first time that although there will be over 100 Dragon Ball Z characters making an appearance in the game, just over 20 of them are actually part of the playable roster -- the rest are Z assists.

The trailer also revealed who 20 of these fighters are:

Today's Nintendo Direct broadcast kicked off with some pretty big news for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/Nintendo 3DS. There's quite a lot to go through.

First up, Nintendo announced a release date for the Mewtwo character DLC -- April 28. The DLC character will be sold for $3.99 if you just need Mewtwo for either the 3DS or the Wii U version of the game. If you'd like to be able to play as Mewtwo in both versions, you can also purchase a bundle for $4.99.

Gamers who've purchased and registered both the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game will receive a free download code on April 15.

On April 28, Mewtwo will be released along with a Ver. 1.0.6 update for the game, which Nintendo says will include "tweaked character balancing" as well as a new sharing functionality for the Wii U version.

A character trailer for Mewtwo was also shown during the broadcast -- but that's not all. Nintendo also showed off a character introduction trailer for the game's second DLC fighter: Lucas.

Bonchan's anti-Luffy tech, Ryu counter-pick against Daigo, ridiculous anti-air on Infiltration from half-a-screen away - USF4 highlights compilation

At Red Bull Kumite, when Bonchan learned that his opponent in the second-round play-offs would be MD|Luffy, the Japanese Sagat specialist was more than prepared for the grudge match between him and the EVO 2014 champion.

In fact, he's been prepared to play MD|Luffy from as far back as August of last year. There aren't a lot of high-level Rose players in Japan, but ever since his loss to Luffy at EVO 2014, Bonchan had been working on counter-measures for the Sagat vs. Rose match-up, in hopes that he would get to play Luffy at Capcom Cup 2014, and finally defeat him.

Alas, the two players never got to play against one another at the Capcom Cup. It would be another four months before we'd finally get to see that Bonchan vs. MD|Luffy grudge match.

But Luffy wasn't the only player at Red Bull Kumite that Bonchan was prepared for. He was also well prepared to fight Daigo, Infiltration and many more. His determination and many months of research on his opponents were arguably what led to his victory this time around.

And to commemorate the occasion -- Bonchan's first victory at a major in a while -- vid maker The Beast has made a compilation video of Bonchan's match highlights, from Red Bull Kumite, Final Round 18 as well as the Tokaigi Game Party Japan 2-on-2 exhibitions in late January. Check it out below.

Hyper Dragon Ball Z - fan made project akin to Capcom's 1990s fighters shows off what they've been up to

It's been almost a year since we looked at the fan-made project Hyper Dragonball Z.

It's a 2D fighting game which the creators say is very much in the vein of Capcom fighters from the 1990s.

The crew has been coding some AI (artificial intelligence) routines for the characters, so you have a lively opponent to spar with when you load up the game, and they've uploaded some fights featuring Gohan, Majin Vegeta and Freeza for people to check out.

This project shouldn't be confused with the 3DS title Arc System Works is releasing titled Dragon Ball Z: Super Extreme Butoden.

Here are a few screens from Hyper Dragon Ball Z, you can find the AI gameplay below.
