MD|Luffy's Lightning Perfect

'Street Fighter 4 was about reviving a passion. Street Fighter 5 is about growing that passion' - Ono on the transition from old into new

The Street Fighter franchise will always have a permanent spot in the annals of fighting game history. In truth, if they had ended the franchise after SF II we'd still be referencing Hadoukens and talking about the iconic mainstays of the game.

Thankfully though, Capcom didn't stop, nor did they drop the ball in any type of failure to keep up with the times. Third Strike came out and reinvented the series, seeing its own influx of diehard fans and leaving its own, unique stamp on the the Street Fighter timeline. Then SF 4 arrived a whopping 12 years later and again we received that traditional Street Fighter excitement in a whole new experience. What exactly does this imply for the upcoming Street Fighter 5?

In the newest issue of Edge Magazine, Yoshinori Ono discusses what it's been like as a Street Fighter producer over the past few years. He addresses the process of creating SF5, catering to fans and still bringing something completely new to the table, unlike anything we've ever seen.

"(Street Fighter 5) is going to be a title that caters to fans, of course, but one that also invites completely new players onto the scene. Street Fighter 4 was about reviving a passion. Street Fighter 5 is about growing that passion.”

Tokido goes in on Snake Eyez, stops Bonchan in his tracks, perfects Xian and Ultras everybody in this 'Ode to Skill' highlight video

Hajine "MCZ|Tokido" Taniguchi's list of notable victims and accomplishments has grown quite expansive over the years. Known for playing a demonic character at a hellish pace, and always with his trademark sinister stare, Tokido has rightfully earned himself the nickname "Murderface."

Intelligent decision making synthesized with all out aggression makes the Japanese "fighting god" incredibly entertaining to watch. One of the Tokido's most remarkable traits is his consistency. You can look almost anywhere in his career and find awe-inspiring, high level Street Fighter play.

From Topanga leagues, high-profile invitationals and Capcom Pro Tour events, we have a compilation of some of the Murderface's strongest moments in recent months. Showing off his abilities to open up even the soundest of defenses, Tokido takes out a vast array of world class competitors like Snake Eyez, Bonchan, RZR|Xian, RZR|Fuudo and more.

Luffy stares down Xian, Poongko dances with Bonchan and guess who gets double perfected? Check out these highlights from Topanga World League day two

Day two of Topanga World League has concluded, and the competitors continue to bring the hype. There's plenty to see here so let's get started!

PIE|Smug

Smug had something of a rough start as he went 0-2 on day one of the tournament. He did not let this deter him however, as he came into day two machine guns blazing.

When his tournament life at NCR was cut short by AVM|Gamerbee's Elena, it was very apparent that Smug was unfamiliar with the match up. Today, he would go up against HORI|Sako's Elena, which is a terrifying task even if you're well acquainted with the character.

It appears as though Smug did indeed do his homework, as he took the fight to the ninth and final match. Looking like the Smug we all know, he makes offensive read after offensive read in an onslaught of pressure that makes Sako look rather helpless.

Perfect Legend officially joins Team Razer! Just in time for the Mortal Kombat X Fatal 8 Exhibition Tournament

Today on his Twitter, Carl "Perfect Legend" White announced that he has joined up to represent team Razer. Very good timing to pick up a sponsor as Perfect Legend is prepping to play in the MKX Fatal 8 Exhibition Tournament tomorrow, on April 11th.

He will face off against seven other "kombatants" including the likes of Ryan Hart and HitBox|Tyrant. RZR|Perfect Legend may be the scariest competitor of all however, with back to back EVO victories for Mortal Kombat 2011 in both 2011 and 2012.

Cinder can no longer go invisible, but he still has Fire Flash! See what's new and old with Killer Instinct's highly anticipated veteran hot head

The team at Iron Galaxy is taking their time to make sure the VFX-heavy character, Cinder, looks just right when they give him his stream debut. Today on the Ultra Combo Forums, Adam Isgreen came out with some new information while we wait for Killer Instinct's upcoming character.

Though a favorite in the original Killer Instinct game, Cinder was not a playable character in KI 2 and so we haven't really seen him in about 19 years.

We've known for some time that Cinder was going to return in the newest iteration of the franchise, but we've had to wait through seven other character releases in Season two in order to finally get him.

You can see a quick pic of his Hero Art below:

Isgreen details the character's move list. He specifies that the development team focused on retaining the best of his old moves, while making him new and fresh with the addition of some new ones.

He's retained four of his original six special moves. His projectile invulnerability and invisibility have been removed, but he's gained the ability to literally set parts of his opponents on fire and do damage over time. If they use their flaming body part while it's ablaze, they reset the DOT timer! Check it all out on the Killer Instinct Textual Stream.

Thank you to EMP_FecalMatter for the submission.

'Daigo is like GOD . . . he is a player that you can never count out.' – Justin Wong talks USF4, hopes for U.S., and more

Justin Wong recently took the time to speak with theScore, an eSports website. In the interview, he speaks about a variety of topics from MCZ|Daigo Umehara to the hopes of a U.S. player winning a major.

After Daigo's victory at NCR once again put another Japanese player into a guaranteed spot for Capcom Cup, the mixed results of American top players like Wong and many of his EG teammates seem to herald another year of disappointment for the U.S. In fact, MD|Luffy is the only player from the West to even win an Evolution championship.

Despite the stark contrast of performance between the East and West, Wong appears extremely determined to turn it around.

"I've been really determined because I want USA to win at SF4," told theScore eSports. "If Europe, Singapore, and Korea can do it, why can't we! I still think Japan has the advantage no matter what, but the more tourneys that they come to, the more experience we get and the better we understand how to fight them, which helps us level up as a whole. I hope we can do it at EVO, but a premier event would be nice as well."

To find out more about Wong's hopes and analysis of the U.S. scene, continue reading below.

New info and trailer for Dissidia: Final Fantasy: Tecmo Koei's Team Ninja will be leading development, PS4 release, fight with summons, and more

A recent closed press conference revealed the details on Dissidia: Final Fantasy. For one, Tecmo Koei's Team Ninja, known for the Dead or Alive series, will be helping in development of the title. As expected in a fighting game, it will run at 60-frames per second.

The arcade game is actually being created using modified PS4 technology. This means a PlayStation 4 release is imminent. Unfortunately, that release won't be for another year after the arcade version, which is due out in Fall 2015.

Perhaps most exciting, though, players will be able to use Final Fantasy summons in battle. In the trailer, Lightning sees fit to bring out Ifrit in battle. Also, a beautiful sweep of Shinra is shown. Check out some screenshots of both below, then make sure to watch the full trailer.
