Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Super Smash Bros. 3DS released today; here are all the easiest ways to unlock your favorite secret character(s)

Today's the day! Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is finally out in North America and Europe. If you haven't already got a copy, you can now pick one up at a video games retailer near you.

But before you make your way down to a retailer, you may want to first download the ver. 1.0.2 update patch for the game at home first -- it's required if you'd like to play online.

Pre-loading the patch could save you a bit of time and frustration, since you'd be able to jump online and start playing with live human opponents immediately -- the matches will go towards a count for unlocking the game's secret characters, after all.

Aside from the total match count, the secret characters can also be unlocked through the various other single-player modes in the game, which we're listing here for the benefit of those of you who'd like to go at it solo first -- or if you just want to unlock Bowser Jr. as soon as possible.

See Kazuya and Leo's 'Rage Arts' super moves; nearly an hour's worth of Tekken 7 action in shakycam footage

Today was the first day of the Tekken 7 location tests in Japan. Although the official location test live streams will only start from from later tonight at 8.30PM (PST time), a few of the location test participants have been capturing videos of the game on their smartphones to share with the rest of the world.

Thanks to their efforts (as well as those of you who shared them with us), we get to take a good look of what Leo and Kazuya's "Rage Arts" super moves are like in the game.

For those of you unfamiliar with Rage Arts, it's one of the two new elements that are being introduced in Tekken 7. Unlike the Rage system in Tekken 6 and TTT2, when your character's life is whittled down to a certain amount, Tekken 7's Rage system will not confer speed or damage boosts, but will instead give you access to a Rage Arts super move that you can combo into for massive damage.

The other new mechanic introduced in Tekken 7 is Power Crush, which you'll get to see in two 30-minute long videos that Twitcast user Eleodica shot from the location tests, embedded below.

Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS launched

To coincide with the North American release of Super Smash Bros. on the 3DS, we've launched tiers for Super Smash Bros. 4 here on EventHubs.

Like our other tier sections, this is a match-up based listing where every possible combination in the game can be voted on.

Once you've filled out the votes for a character, you can easily share them on social media.

Also, with this release a stats area is available, and you can find other Smash 4 players using our very handy Fight Tracker tool.

Once the Wii U version is released, we'll archive and reset these listings, and start again focusing on the main title that will be used in the competitive scene.

Updated: Tekken 7 gameplay footage; images show new fighter Claudio, character select screen, Katarina

Updated: Gameplay footage of Tekken 7 has just hit YouTube. Check it out after the jump.

The first-ever Tekken 7 location tests are currently being held in Japan, and although the live streams won't be going up until tomorrow, some lucky players are already getting their hands on it.

Luckily, FlyingWonkey of Avoiding The Puddle is currently tweeting out information about Bandai Namco's upcoming fighter.

Tonight we have a special treat, as Wonkey posted photos of Tekken 7's character select screen showing Katarina's official artwork. Additionally, we get to see a screenshot of an actual match, making these images the first real look at the new Tekken title.

Another new fighter has also entered the fray. A male fighter named Claudio can be seen in the official PDF detailing new mechanics that was released earlier today. Below you will find scans of the PDF showing move lists, and the photos showing the character select screen and gameplay.

'Zangief was one of the worst characters in AE v2012, by far; sometimes he feels too strong in USF4' - EventHubs exclusive interview with veggey

Last weekend, DreamHack Stockholm happened, and Norwegian top players made a splash. While 1st and 2nd places went to European superstars MD|Luffy and DIG|Ryan Hart, respectively, 3rd and 4th place were claimed by BX3|veggey and BX3|Phenom, who have both been tearing it up in the European scene for a long time now.

In light of their continued high placings, we decided to reach out for interviews with both of them, and first up is the grappler of the North, Mr. Vegard "veggey" Kopangen Bugge himself. Below, you'll find a snippet to get you started.

MajinTenshinhan: For how long have you been playing fighting games, and what was it that made you start?

Veggey: I've been playing since the summer of 2009. It started with a friend of mine, who said that I should buy Street Fighter 4, but I was like "No, fighters are crap". Then I said, "Okay, if your girlfriend can guess what number I am thinking of between 1-10, I'll buy it". She guessed 7, and I thought of 7, so I had to buy it. The mind games started before I even got the game! She would probably be godlike with El Fuerte, right? No...

You can find the rest of the interview below.

Juri and Cammy's Summer Vacation outfits, MvC2 heroes destroy Sentinel, and more - Edwin Huang's fighting game artwork

We have featured UDON's Edwin Huang here on EventHubs before, but his artwork is so great that we feel one good turn deserves another. So today we have an assortment of great pieces from Edwin that range from fully colored products to commission work.

Right off the bat, what stands out to us is Huang's depiction of both Juri and Cammy's Ultra Street Fighter 4 Summer Vacation costumes. It isn't often that we see artwork displaying in-game alternate outfits, so this is a refreshing take on the two Street Fighter femme fatales.

Also included here are pieces showing some of the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 heroes (and Nightcrawler) in action, Hokuto from the Street Fighter EX series, and more.

Click each image below for a closer look, and let us know which are your favorites.

Yoshi is a top-tier character in Super Smash Bros. 3DS too, according to Japan's SHI-Gaming group - tier charts from A to E

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS launches in North America tomorrow. Soon, you'll be able to finally get your hands on a retail copy of Nintendo's highly-anticipated fighter, as well as input your thoughts on the game's characters right here on EventHubs's very own tiers section for the game (we're planning on launching a section for Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U very soon).

Until then, however, early tier lists for the game from Japan have served as a pretty good point of reference thus far. And yesterday, another such list has been published on the Web -- this time from SHI-Gaming (which is short for Shinonome Gaming), a notable band of Smash Bros. streamers in Japan who also hold tournaments at various venues all over Japan. These guys certainly know a thing or two about putting together a solid tier list.

While most of the characters on this list are in more or less the same tier positions as they were on other lists supplied by Japanese fans, there are still a few surprises here. For instance, SHI-Gaming named Yoshi as one of three top-tier characters in the game -- and that's the first time I've seen anyone suggest that for Mario's dinosaur pal.

But the surprises do not stop there. Check out the full tier list below.

Air & Dunhill locked in a fireball war, Poongko styling on KSK, Daigo gets rushed down - USF4 ranked matche also ft. Luffy, Infiltration

This morning we have a mighty fine selection of Ultra Street Fighter 4 ranked match videos for your viewing pleasure.

Kicking things off is an intense match between CCG|Air and Japan's Dunhill, which has been made possible now that CCG|Air is currently living in Japan for a little while as he undergoes training. Dunhill may be playing Dee Jay in this match, against Air's Ryu, but when it comes to zoning, he Dunhill's Dee Jay sure is a tough nut to crack.

Other matches in this highlight include a Poongko (Seth) Vs. KSK (Oni) one where we get to see The Machine get stylish with his combos; a match where MCZ|Daigo finds himself cornered by an online Yang player; a Rose mirror-match featuring MD|Luffy; and a match in which Infiltration shows us why you shouldn't be too eager to focus punish a Stinger knife attack.

Quan Chi is the latest Mortal Kombat X character reveal; video shows Sorcerer, Warlock, and Summoner variations

Just like NetherRealm Studios's Ed Boon teased yesterday, a new character reveal for Mortal Kombat X is due together -- and it's not other than the series's devious sorcerer Quan Chi.

As with all characters on the Mortal Kombat X roster, there will be three playable variations of Quan Chi: Sorcerer, Warlock, and Summoner.

Sorcerer Quan Chi has access to projectile spells (image #2 below), as well as buffs that he can cast to power them up. He also has access to debuff spells that can weaker his opponent.

Warlock Quan Chi does not appear to possess projectiles -- but he doesn't need them. This variation can open interdimensional dark portals that let him grab an opponent from afar, among other cool uses (images #3 to #5).

Finally, Summoner Quan Chi can conjure demonic beasts (image #6 below) to aid him in combat.

Along with the character reveal comes a trailer that shows all three of Quan Chi's variations in Mortal Kombat X. Check it out below.
