And the winner is... See which characters EventHubs readers voted as most wanted for future updates of Mortal Kombat X

Update: The votes are in, 2,937 votes to be exact, and you've chosen who you want to see in possible future Mortal Kombat X updates.

You've voted Noob Saibot as first with 209 votes, then Frost and Rain both with 186 votes, Fujin with 182 votes and Smoke with 157 votes as your top five hopefuls should MKX release new DLC characters in the future. You can hit the jump below to see the full results.

Earlier: Mortal Kombat X has finally finished releasing the first Kombat Pack, featuring the four DLC characters Jason, Tanya, Predator and Tremor. During their Tremor Kombat Kast, developers briefly hinted at the possibility for another Kombat Pack, and therefore more new characters.

With the success of MKX thus far, evidenced by the popularity of the Mortal Kombat ESL Pro League, and attendance numbers at major events such as EVO 2015, few would be surprised if developers continued to generate new content for the game.

With a massive cast of characters from previous titles, possibilities are vast. Having experienced about four months of MKX now, we'd like to hear who you'd want to see as playable in the latest Mortal Kombat universe.

ZeRo officially sponsored by Team SoloMid

Update: It's now official, Gonzalo “ZeRo” Barrios is the newest member of Team SoloMid. ZeRo comments on his new partnership, "TSM was the team I wanted to play for the most, and I’m really excited to have accomplished that. Can’t wait to make TSM proud with what I know how to do best: SMASH!"

We wish the best of luck to both parties in their new found coalition.

Earlier: Rumors have been spreading about Gonzalo “ZeRo” Barrios, perhaps currently the best Smash 4 player on the planet, joining Team SoloMid.

According to Daily Dot, "sources close to the player and organization" say that ZeRo will be jumping on board with Team SoloMid some time in the coming weeks.

Should these rumors turn out to be true, ZeRo will be joining Melee player TSM|Leffen as the second fighting game player to be sponsored by TSM. Team SoloMid is known for their strong representation in Counter Strike, League of Legends, Hearthstone and Smite.

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is getting new stages, new costumes and a brand new character

Fans of the Dead or Alive series will be excited to hear that Last Round will be receiving quite a bit of content in the coming months.

The first of this content will be available on August 11th. The 1.04 patch will bring with it the new "Fireworks" stage as well as the Lovely Summer Costume 2015 pack. September will offer yet another set of costumes, but these will be based on Nihon Falcom games.

In October, the winning costumes from the DOA Designer Challenge 2015 will be released. DLC based on Square Enix’s Schoolgirl Strikers will be available in November.

Though it's a ways off, in Spring of 2016, DoA5:LR will receive a major update with both a brand new character and another new stage. At this point, we don't know much else in the way of details, but surely more information will become available as we grow closer to the release date.

R. Mika and Haggar spotted in Ultra Street Fighter 4; Cody, Maki and Guy spotted in Street Fighter 5

It's no secret that Capcom likes to place Easter Egg references in the backgrounds of fighting game stages. Some are more obvious than others, such as the Fei Long movie banner in the Street Fighter 5 Chinese street stage.

Another of the more conspicuous inclusions is found in Street Fighter 4's Skyscraper stage, wherein one of the characters in the background looks an awful lot like a member of the Andore family. A few less conspicuous character references have been discovered in both SF4 and SF5.

In the USF4's half pipe stage, there's a billboard in the background, high above the fight cam's regular field of view. If you perform a move that manipulates the camera correctly, such as Ken's ultra one, when on the extreme left side of the stage, you'll see this:

Both Final Fight's Haggar and Street Fighter's R. Mika appear on the distant billboard. We checked at home ourselves, to make sure this was legitimate. That's not all we've seen though, hit the jump to see what's been found in the train station stage of SF5.

'That voice is primarily me and a plunger.' - Learn the ins and outs of Killer Instinct's sound design with The Sounds of Killer Instinct

While many know about the visual design and gameplay mechanics of their favorite fighting games, sound design is often completely overlooked. And not just the realm of voice work, but the intricacies of move sounds and ambient noise.

In Killer Instinct, there's a huge emphasis on sound production quality, and the official video The Sounds of Killer Instinct gives us an awesome look into how a lot of the sound work in Season 2 was handled.

From Tibetan throat singing and plungers to gardening tools and squashed vegetables, there is certainly a lot of interesting, unorthodox tidbits in the game's sound design that come together beautifully.

'If foreign players continue to play...the gap can be closed.' - Translated tweets from Rion, Woshige, and Nage detail their EVO impressions

While every game made waves this year, Guilty Gear Xrd's tournament put on quite a show at EVO, even ending up on Sportscenter. Though that's about half a month in the past now, some more details behind the EVO experience of three huge Guilty Gear players are surfacing.

Thanks to the efforts of Tenma three huge Twitlonger posts, one from each of the players, have been translated fully, giving us a ton of insight into the experience, travel difficulties, thoughts about international players, and tactics for overcoming other players.

Here is the tweet containing each of the translated pieces:
In summation, it would seem all three players had a great time at this year's EVO, and plan on returning again if Xrd is a main title next year. Though the language barrier and travel seemed challenging, the atmosphere of the event and other community members proved helpful in their visit.

'We're trying to layer [classic Street Fighter moments] into Street Fighter 5' - Matt Dahlgren takes us behind the scenes of Street Fighter 5

Although the excitement surrounding the beta test has calmed down, news is still abuzz about Street Fighter 5. In this case, Capcom's director of brand marketing and eSports, Matt Dahlgren, spoke with Gamasutra about the developmental aspects of Street Fighter 5.

In the piece, he gives us a look at Capcom's mentality going into Street Fighter 5, the aspects of making it a service rather than a single product, the ideology behind game balance, and the idea that the variable system was brought in to highlight popular elements from past Street Fighter games, and making them present in Street Fighter 5.

Dahlgren states, "basically, we've gone back and looked at the previous iterations of Street Fighter and the elements that were the most popular, that we could layer in to create Street Fighter 5." One of the examples he notes involves Ryu's V-Skill, encapsulating an entire game's mechanic into a single V-Skill.

Hit the jump for more details, and some insight to what we may be seeing in the future from Street Fighter 5.
