Pokkèn Tournament release date, new character(s), and more expected to be revealed July 3 via live stream

Namco Bandai were among the fighting game companies that were fairly quiet at this year's E3. With no real announcements for games such as Tekken 7, Pokkèn Tournament, or even a new Soul Calibur (which many suspected would be revealed at the expo), fans were left wondering when they'd see new info for their favorite 3D fighting games.

A couple of days ago, we found out that an important Tekken 7 announcement will take place next week, and now it seems as though we'll be seeing something new from Pokkèn Tournament -- Namco Bandai's Pokèmon fighter -- even sooner. According to Serebii.net, a live stream will air on Nico Nico this Friday July 3 at 8 p.m. JST / 7 a.m. EDT / 4 a.m. PDT.

Serebii's report states that we can expect to see an official console release date reveal, along with new Pokemon and more gameplay information. A tournament will also be aired in which guests will get a chance to play as Gengar and the newly announced character(s).

Check back Friday for the Pokkèn Tournament live stream.

Capcom discusses Street Fighter 5's roster and selection process, users will only need to own one disc

We spoke at length with Matt Dahlgren, the Director of Brand Marketing & eSports at Capcom, about the roster size of Street Fighter 5, and future development plans.

I asked Matt how big of a roster they're aiming for at launch, and what fans should expect to see when the game drops in the spring of 2016.

"We're not revealing the total roster count just yet," said Dahlgren. "What we can say is that we're putting a strong focus on making sure that every character put into the game is very unique and has their own individuality.

"We want to start off with a core roster which will be inviting to new players. When you start off with a gigantic roster right off the bat, it can be pretty daunting for new players to figure out where to start."

801 Strider clashes with Alex Myers in this behind the scenes first to five set at CEO 2015

After a wildly impressive performance at this year's CEO, 801 Strider has erased any doubt that he is a force to be reckoned with.

Using Abel, a character that is fairly uncommon in tournaments, Strider has taken out the likes of MCZ|Daigo, EG|Momochi and more in recent major performances. Today we have here a behind the scenes first to five set between Strider's Abel and Alex Myers' Sakura at CEO this past weekend.

Myers, who cracked the top 20 at the heavily-stacked major, is known for his high level Sakura play with his strong execution and seemingly unblockable set ups. Hit the jump below to see how things played out between these two killers from the West.

Predator's regular win pose is a Fatality; game play, finishers and more leaked for Predator in Mortal Kombat X

This character looks awesome. A good portion of leaked content for Predator in Mortal Kombat X has surfaced in the past few hours, and we've got some of the essentials here for you.

Predator uses most all of his iconic weapons such as his spear, disk, plasma cannon, cloaking and self destruct sequence, but his claw looks to be the most commonly used. We have isolated his Fatality, his deadly win sequence and his Brutality below, and naturally, they're NSFW:

Ed Boon is hinting at something again, and we... have no idea what the Hell it is; check out Johnny Cage and Jax reenact a classic Predator moment

After yesterday's big Predator leak, it looks like Ed Boon is rolling with the punches and showing that not everything has been revealed just yet.

The Mortal Kombat creator took to Twitter earlier this morning to share an image of Tanya from the in-game character viewer. Now, normally that wouldn't be interesting at all, but upon the screenshot we see an arrow drawn on, along with the number one and another line running over one of the background's rock structures.

What the line and number indicate, I don't know, however, we see that the arrow is pointing to what appears to be a blurry figure peaking out from behind the rocks. Below, we've snapped a screenshot of our own and pointed out where you can see the figure.

Ed Boon's Mortal Kombat X teasers image #2

Said figure could simply be an extension of the rocks, but it looks a bit too different to be just that. And what do the rest of the clues in Boon's teaser mean? We're stumped here at EventHubs. This is definitely Boon's most kryptic hint yet.

Over two hours of quality Street Fighter 5 footage ft. F-Word, Shoryusengan, RMZ, and more - WSO Sessions

Last week's WSO Sessions exchanged Ultra Street Fighter 4 for the current build of Street Fighter 5. As such, a handful of the UK's strongest fighters were given the chance to try out the upcoming Capcom fighter.

Today, we have over two hours of awesome Street Fighter 5 footage featuring players such as F-Word, UM|Shoryusengan, UM|RMZ, and more.

Throughout the sets we get to see quite a bit of Ryu and Nash in action, but you'll also see play from the other characters on the current roster.

Toast your opponent at the Lin Kuei Temple... Erron Black's X-ray just became even more lethal; brand new Mortal Kombat X Brutalities

Two more Brutalities have been discovered for Mortal Kombat X since the latest patch just last week. One of these is a stage Brutality, performable only at the Lin Kuei Temple.

It involves using the intractable fireballs held by the statue in the middle of the stage. After fulfilling a few requirements, mentioned in the video, you'll be able to finish your opponent in a way that seems to pay tribute to Scorpion's original Fatality in the first Mortal Kombat.

In addition to this, Erron Black has received an augmentation to his X-ray. So now he has a brand new method of finishing off his foes in style. The first of the two can be seen below, and perhaps it's just me, but I find Kotal Kahn's post-toast animation quite comical:

'We’ve always been close to the eSports space and will continue to be' - Reggie Fils-Aimé on Nintendo's current competitive gaming path

Traditionally speaking, Nintendo has been a brand that has catered more to the family and party atmosphere. It's fairly well known that Super Smash Bros. creator, Masahiro Sakurai, did not create the franchise, nor continue it, with competitive gaming as one of his top priorities.

Still, with multiple titles still simultaneously represented in tournaments, Super Smash Bros. has been a major part of the competitive gaming scene for some time now. The competitive success of SSB is so potent that Nintendo simply can't seem to deny it when discussing the company's future in competitive eSports.

At E3 this year Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aimé, briefly discussed Nintendo's attitude toward and involvement with eSports, and Smash 4 was the first title he mentioned.

Hit the jump to see what Reggie had to say.

'Stone Cold Kenneth Bradley' - K-Brad's CEO 2015 entrance may look familiar to fans of The Texas Rattlesnake

Yesterday, we highlighted YOMI|Dieminion's Ultra Street Fighter 4 entrance as one of our favorite moments from CEO 2015. Today, we have footage of yet another epic entrance: EG|K-Brad during the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 winners semi finals.

K-Brad brought they hype this year, walking to the stage with ferocity and Stone Cold Steve Austin's theme blaring behind him.

I don't want to give too much away because this video is definitely something you just have to see, however, I will say that K-Brad reenacts Austin's entrance damn near perfectly, right down to the Stunner.

Hit the jump to check out quite possibly the best video you'll see all day.

A big Tekken 7 announcement will drop very soon, says the official Tekken Project team

The Tekken team was suspiciously quiet at this year's E3, and we haven't heard much from them since the reveal of Kazumi Mishima last month. But it's looking like that's all about to chance.

A teaser was sent out by the official Tekken Project Twitter account late last night that talked of a "very important announcement" set to be made on July 7th. According to the tweet, this announcement will be made in celebration of Tekken's 20th anniversary.

The tweet featured a Tekken 7 hashtag and a promotional image of Kazuya and Heihachi from the latest installment , meaning the announcement will definitely be T7 related.

You can check out the official tweet along with a translation below.
