Momochi was going to participate in the Red Bull Kumite open qualifier, but plans have changed; here are the other majors he's attending

As many of you know by now, EG|Momochi was not one of the 14 Ultra Street Fighter 4 players invited to attend the Red Bull Kumite tournament that's taking place at the end of the month.

But just because he didn't receive an invitation doesn't mean that he can't show up to the party: an open tournament held the day before the Red Bull Kumite main event was going to determine who the final two slots in this 16-man tournament would go to -- and EG|Momochi was planning on making a bid for one of the slots.

Unfortunately, Momochi's plans have hit a snag, and they have changed, according to Antonio Javier, Director of Player Operations at GoodGame Agency, the company behind Evil Genuises.

Sakurai: Mewtwo DLC release will not be delayed, it's pretty much done, we plan to release the Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS character very soon

It's been a while since we've heard anything about the Mewtwo DLC character release for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/Nintendo 3DS. Understandably, that has made many Smash fans pretty anxious -- especially since Mewtwo is one of the most popular characters in past installments.

The game's director, Masahiro Sakurai, is definitely aware of the anxiety and anticipation that fans have expressed for the DLC character. And so this week, on a "Tomokazu Sugita and Kenji Ito! Super Smash bros. Special Game Stream" Web show, in which Sakurai appeared on as a guest to talk about the series' history, the Smash Bros. director made an "announcement-ish announcement" (video embedded below).

"So with regards to my announcement-ish announcement, it isn't anything to do with something new I'm working on; it's nothing like that," Sakurai begins.

Daigo gets bested by Hugo player Alucard in a ft3 set at Final Round 18 - Ultra Street Fighter 4 shakycam match footage

He's done it now. Hugo player Antwan "CORN|Alucard" Ortiz has managed to defeat the legend himself, MCZ|Daigo "The Beast" Umehara, in a first-to-3 set at Final Round 18 which is happening right now in Atlanta.

Now before you get too excited, though, no, this doesn't mean that MCZ|Daigo didn't make it out of his pools or anything; the match that Ortiz won was just in casuals.

Still, MCZ|Daigo is such a dominating player that even in casuals he rarely loses. So let's not take away Ortiz's accomplishment here -- even if it's in casuals, a win is a win. Besides, Ortiz managed to do it with Hugo, widely regarded as a low-tier character, and a character that Daigo himself has previously tried to learn, but thought too weak to be viable in a competitive setting.

And thanks to Destin Williams on YouTube, who brings us this shakycam footage of MCZ|Daigo vs. Antwan "CORN|Alucard" Ortiz at Final Round 18. you can see for yourself how the match went. Check out the video below.

'France's top players are the same as 2-3 years ago, Europe overall has more talented players than the US' - Cuongster talks regions, SF5 and more

Just a few weeks ago, Cannes Winter Clash wrapped up, and a whole plethora of talented players attended the event.

Thankfully, I was at the event representing our site, and managed to grab many interviews with players, which we will be publishing daily for about the next two weeks.

Today, another of France's best, CDV|Cuongster, talks about . Here's a snippet to get you started.

MajinTenshinhan: You originally played E. Honda, and now you're also playing Yun. I have to say, these two characters feel like complete opposites to me. What do you consider when picking a character, and how did you end up with two so different ones?

CDV|Cuongster: I started to play E. Honda in Vanilla because I liked the way he can easily defend using his normals. And, honestly, at the time I didn't really like Street Fighter 4 and just wanted to play competitively with an "easy character". I started using Yun in AE to counterpick matchups like Sagat, Dhalsim, Guile ... But I didn't really invest myself in the character that much, and didn't find his optimal way of being played.

I regret that a lot now, because I have a lot of fun playnig Yun now. I'm very dedicated to him now. We have a WhatsApp group with UM|RMZ from UK, DM|Kaiser from Singapore and a few good Yun players where we discuss a lot about Yun tech. When I pick a character, I like to be able to adapt them to as many matchups as possible. I also like to switch from a very defensive playstyle to a very aggressive one.

Capcom is location-testing a new Ultra Street Fighter 4 controller that's optimized for Rufus's Focus Attack cancel into grab

Okay, so maybe we're exaggerating a little when we say that Capcom is location-testing a new Ultra Street Fighter 4 controller that's optimized for Rufus's Focus Attack cancel into grab technique.

But it is true that they're currently holding location tests, from March 20 to 24, at the Shinjuku Taito Station for USF4 machines outfitted with a Hori six-button game pad on top of the standard joystick controls, and that the Hori pad controls are set up with a button configuration that makes performing Rufus's Focus Attack cancel into grab tech a cinch.

Here's what the controller, and its button configuration looks like. The last picture in the gallery shows Capcom's Assistant Producer for USF4 Tomoaki Ayano playing at Shinjuku Taito Station with a very special player title reserved exclusively for the makers of the game.
