Capcom announced today in a press release that it has partnered with Epic Games to develop Street Fighter V on Unreal Engine 4. This is a major change from Street Fighter 4's engine, which was designed from the ground up by Dimps.

Mew2King covers why he thinks Diddy Kong is only the second best character in Super Smash Bros. 4, who's number one, and more in this video interview

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS's tiers have been in hot debate since the game's launch and subsequent patch. Diddy Kong, in particular, has become the center of attention for many fans of the series, some referring him to Smash 4's "Meta Knight" (a character so strong in Super Smash Bros. Brawl that he was banned from multiple tournaments).

But Mew2King doesn't share the same sentiment as his peers. He places Diddy as the second best fighter on the belief that there exists someone even better.

This isn't the only moment in the footage his ideas fly in the face of accepted knowledge about the game, either.

Check out some text snippets from the video interview below to get you started and find out who this top player thinks holds the number one spot in Super Smash Bros. 4.

The rumors that Street Fighter 5 will be a 2016 release are starting to seem increasingly true (though by no means confirmed). Not only has Amazon listed the game for a 2016 launch, but a recent two-page feature in Famitsu further sheds some light on a possible release date along with the development process.

Read below to find out Ayano's statements and a confirmation on how EX moves will be performed in the newest Street Fighter.

EventHubs lists top 30 Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 players in 2014, #30 - #25 - voice your opinions on Twitter: #UMvC3rank

It's that time of year once again, folks! Tonight we return with our top players list for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This time around, we're sharing our picks for the 30 best warriors in 2014.

The EventHubs team met up once again to vote on each player based on tournament results since the last time we compiled this list, factoring in player skill across the globe and personal opinion.

The players listed here have performed at big events consistently, and players who haven't traveled much outside of their region were not included because it's a bit too difficult to judge them based on their performances only in the local area.

We have given each player a score between 1 - 10, then averaged all of the numbers together. Today we have player #30 - player #25 listed.

If you'd like to join the discussion, or want to tear our heads off for our choices (again), you can voice your opinions about our list on Twitter using the hashtag "#UMvC3rank." You can also share your thoughts in our comments section, as usual.

No Wave Dash in Smash 4? Here's the next best thing! Learn how to 'Perfect Pivot' in both the Wii U and 3DS versions

Wave Dashing is a technique that allows players to quickly glide across the screen by quickly cancelling a jump with an air dodge. This maneuver is a staple in Super Smash Bros. Melee competitive play, but as the franchise progressed it became less prominent -- especially in Smash 4.

It looks like a new way to move around a bit more quickly in the latest Smash Bros. title has been discovered. My Smash Corner recorded a tutorial for a technique called "Perfect Pivot" that utilizes a lightning fast input to cancel a dash. After a dash in either direction, the player must hit the opposite direction on the control stick almost immediately afterward.

Performing this input properly will allow the player to perform multiple dashes subsequently and move across the screen a bit faster.

The video demonstrates how to perform Perfect Pivoting, discusses what its main uses are, and even displays a chart with numerical distances for each character to show which fighters have the most effective ranges.

You can check out the tutorial after the jump.

Omega Mode roundup (boss edition): M. Bison, Seth, Oni CMVs and tutorials

For this round of Ultra Street Fighter 4 Omega Mode videos, we're focusing exclusively on three boss characters from the SF series: M. Bison, Oni and Seth, picked out from all of the submissions sent in to us.

With the Street Fighter series in general, boss characters tend to possess a large armament of special moves to choose from, giving players of these characters plenty of options to go about their attack plan with. But that's not all: in quite a few Street Fighter games, computer-controlled boss characters even gain a few extra tricks up their sleeves -- double air fireballs, more advantage or damage on their moves, et cetera.

The Omega versions of these three characters thus play a little like CPU-controlled bosses -- except since this is Omega Mode we're talking about, things get even crazier, as some of the combos you see here can dish out more than 500 damage.

Check out the Omega M. Bison, Oni and Seth CMVs and tutorials below.

Capcom Cup 2014 first-round match archives ft. Luffy, Nishikin, Snake Eyez, Momochi, Ryan Hart, NuckleDu, Ricky Ortiz, PR Balrog

Although Capcom Cup 2014 just wrapped up a couple of days ago, it kind of feels like it's been aeons since the tournament was done, if only because there was so much Street Fighter news in the aftermath, and everyone's been so hooked with Omega Mode and USF4 Ver 1.04 since the update dropped Monday.

During the tournament, we moved double-time to bring you highlights from the first half of the tournament as they happen -- but that was met with a bit of criticism, as some of you who felt that, for some reason, we were spoiling it for you.

So here's the good news: the official Capcom Fighters YouTube channel has just begun uploading match archives from the tournament, for those of you who's looking forward to reliving the best moments from CapCup 2014.

Today, they've put up four of the first-round matches for you to check out: MD|Luffy vs. Nishikin, DIG|Ryan Hart vs. CRS|NuckleDu, EG|PR Balrog vs. EG|Ricky Ortiz, and Snake Eyez vs. EG|Momochi.

Video: Mega Man has an infinite in Super Smash Bros. Wii U that works on Villager and possibly other characters

An infinite combo for Mega Man has been found in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U this week, brought to you by Marushou, the same Japanese Smash fan from which we learned about the Rosalina & Luma infinite, among other things.

Like with the Zero Suit Samus loop before, the Mega Man infinite is an exploit that takes advantage of the properties of the footstool jump, which leaves your opponent completely defenseless right after he has gotten back up on his feet -- allowing you to land a free grab or another footstool jump.

Of course, the Zero Suit Samus and Rosalina infinites have already been removed with the latest update patch for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U.

Although Sakurai did recently reveal in a Famitsu interview that Nintendo currently has no plans to balance the game any further, there's a good chance that this Mega Man infinite loop will be addressed in a future patch -- Sakurai did say they would continue to fix problems affecting online and any other glaring issues.

NetherRealm Studios' own Ed Boon even addressed this status update over on Twitter when one follower sent him the image above. In classic Boon fashion, the MK creator simply replied saying, "Time to start dropping clues!"

Looks like we'll have to stay glued to Boon's Twitter from now until January for any potential hints at the next MKX fighter.

Who do you think we'll see revealed next month? Will it be another returning Mortal Kombat character or someone entirely new? Let us know in the comments below!
