SNK Playmore registers trademarks for The Last Blade, The King of Fighters, Maximum Impact, Athena Asamiya - hints of new titles?

20 years ago, on August 25, 1994, the fighting game genre was irrevocably changed when SNK released The King of Fighters '94 for its MVS arcade system.

KOF94 was the first fighting game ever to feature characters from various different titles crossing over into the same universe for an epic dream battle -- an idea that would later make its way into other major fighting games franchises, including Capcom's Vs. series, Super Smash Bros., and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

Today marks the 20th anniversary of SNK Playmore's KOF franchise. Unfortunately, it looks like the fighting games maker has nothing to announce on this momentous occasion.

But it isn't complete radio silence on the SNK fighting games' front; today the trademark_bot Twitter account has uncovered a number of noteworthy trademark registration filings that SNK Playmore has recently made.

Wario, Krystal from Star Fox Adventures, Rival Smash mode - Giant gallery of leaked Super Smash Bros. for 3DS off-screen images

Earlier this morning we posted some videos that lend a lot of credence to the leaked roster list and info for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS rumors -- but that's not all.

This rabbit hole just keeps getting deeper. The leakers have now also posted a giant gallery of off-screen images showing numerous different aspects of the game: menus, modes of play, stills of characters and even trophies.

At this point it's hard to believe that someone would go through all this trouble to doctor up a bunch of images and videos for the purpose of perpetuating a fake list.

But until they've been 100% confirmed, we're marking these leaked images and info as rumors for now.

Over the past week or so a rumored leaked list of the character roster in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS has been floating around on the Interwebs.

While over here at EventHubs we had been hesitant on posting the supposedly leaked list as a news item on the site, due to the high possibility of it being fake, this morning some very telling videos of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS -- featuring gameplay footage of Bowser Jr., Shulk (from Xenoblade Chronicles) and Ganondorf in action -- has also been posted on the Web, injecting a much-needed dose of credibility to the leaked list.

Ono: Capcom fighting games revival project was developed internally by old-timers; SSF2T initially picked instead of Hyper SF2

After finding out about Capcom's announcement of a fighting games revival project that would see four classic fighters redistributed in Japanese arcades via the NESiCAxLIVE platform, some EventHubs readers have been wondering why the Osaka-based games maker decided to go with Hyper Street Fighter 2 and Street Fighter Alpha 3 instead of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo and SFA3 Double Upper as two of their picks.

As it turns out, our readers weren't the only folks wondering about that.

After Capcom made the announcement at the Tokyo qualifier for the "Isshuu Sengeki Cup" Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournament yesterday, Famitsu caught up with Capcom's Head of Consumer Games Development Division 2 Yoshinori Ono to find out more about the project -- and asked about their criterion for games selection.

Remember the sweet ride that Infiltration took home as part of the prizes for winning Street Fighter X Tekken at the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary tournament grand finals?

The one-of-a-kind Street Fighter-themed Scion FR-S sports coupe that was produced in partnership with Capcom, Five Axis and Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) that featured custom aero kit, spoilers, wheels and other bells and whistles?

The ride that Infiltration actually had to earn his license for, just so he could drive it?

Apparently Infiltration has sold it, due to the high-maintenance nature of the vehicle, according to an interview he gave to a Korean publication (translated to Japanese by skullokei on Twitter, and subsequently into English by us).
