Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Yoshi can teleport to the edge after throwing out air projectiles in Super Smash Bros. 3DS due to a glitch

Either this is a glitch, or Mario's dinosaur pal secretly took Satsui no Hadou lessons from Akuma: When recovering from an edge grab, Yoshi can throw a couple of egg projectiles at his opponent as he jumps back into the fray -- and quickly teleport back to the edge grab position soon after landing.

After seeing some Japanese players pull this off consistently, popular Smash player D1 (also one of the shoutcasters at Nintendo's E3 invitationals) decided to try it out for himself, and came to the realization that the glitch is incredibly easy to do.

In this video, he explains how you too can perform Yoshi's teleportation glitch.

Yang performs a 68-hit combo, Mantis Slashes into LV 2 Focus Crumple; crazy Genei Jin combos with Yun - Ultra Street Fighter 4 CMV

Who needs the EX Red Focus Attack when you've got Mantis Slashes that combo into a Lv 2 Focus Crumple?

Since unlike an EX Red Focus, a regular Lv 2 EX Focus Attack costs only 2 EX bars, you can even do it twice in the same combo -- and that's one of the many feats that cjbqulix has shown here in his latest CMV starring the twins Yun and Yang in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Other cool combos on display here include one that's 68-hits long for Yang, some crazy Genei Jin strings with Yun, meaty Palm combos, and much more.

Diddy Kong and Palutena in the grand finals; highlights from Japan's Game8 SmaOff Tokyo tournament

It's purely a coincidence, but on the same weekend that JTalis -- a Diddy Kong player -- was crowned the champion of the KTAR X Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS tournament in Namuel, New York, the exact same thing was happening to another Diddy Kong player over in Japan.

On October 5 (October 4 in the United States), the Game8 online community in Japan held a Super Smash Bros. 3DS offline meet and tournament in Tokyo, and Gomibako, a Diddy Kong player who got his start into the competitive Smash scene in Japan with Brawl, came in first place.

2nd place went to a Palutena player who goes by the nickname Coral, with Tamanyaso (Lucario) and Ii (Ganondorf) rounding up the top four. The tournament was played in a single-elimination, single match format, with each match being a 2-stock, 7-minute game.

SHI-Gaming (who provided this set of Super Smash Bros. 3DS tier lists prior to the game's official launch in the US) attended the event and was in charge of streaming duties. They've also uploaded some of the matches from the tournament onto their YouTube channel -- check out the matches below.

Should Street Fighter X Tekken receive an update? Is it even worth it at this point? EventHubs Round Table discusses Ono's Famitsu interview

Earlier this week, Capcom's own Yoshinori Ono spoke to Famitsu, saying that an update to Street Fighter X Tekken may actually be possible.

With that in mind, the EventHubs team banded together in order to discuss the Capcom/Bandai Namco crossover fighter. What alterations should be made if an update came to fruition? Is patching the game even worth it at this point? We address all of this and more in our latest Round Table.

Not only that, but in his interview Ono stated that the chances of us seeing a new Darkstalkers title any time soon are extremely slim. But it doesn't hurt to dream! As an added bonus, each of this discussion's participants divulged what they'd most like to see if a fresh game in the series were ever created.

Check out what we have to say below, and as always, please feel free to provide your own answers to these questions in our comments section.

Daigo's Evil Ryu isn't so scary; Dunhill's Dee Jay, Sakura goes toe-to-toe with The Beast in this Ultra Street Fighter 4 set

To many (including myself), MCZ|Daigo "The Beast" Umehara is a legend. A lot of players look up to him, and sometimes that's a problem for them -- if they're about to play him in a tournament.

That's because sometimes players pay MCZ|Daigo so much respect that before their match against him has actually begun, they're already at a slight disadvantage: they don't think they can take it over MCZ|Daigo.

That's not the case here, however, in this set between MCZ|Daigo and Dunhill, Japan's top Dee Jay and Sakura player, played earlier this week on Xbox Live.

In this set of XBL matches (streamed by Dunhill himself on Nico Video, and compiled by TokidoFans Blog), Dunhill starts out picking Dee Jay against The Beast -- and actually manages to go toe-to-toe with him for a few games.

Eventually Dunhill felt that Dee Jay was holding him back, however, and switches to Sakura. From that point on, the matches got incredibly intense. Every match could have gone either way. Here are a few highlights:

Diddy Kong and Robin/Little Mac in the grand finals - highlights from KTAR X's Super Smash Bros. 3DS 60-man tournament

This past weekend, the KTAR X Super Smash Bros. 3DS, Project M and SSBM tournaments took place in Namuel, New York.

The event saw a total of 113 players in attendence, 60 of whom took part in the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS tournament.

When the tournament took place, it had only been a couple of days since the official release of the game in America -- but that didn't stop Smash players from showing up with their best tricks in tow.

Jtalis ended up taking the tournament with his Diddy Kong, with Nairo coming in at 2nd place with his Robin (#5 on our tier lists according to you, although the Japan's SHI_Gaming team believes he or she is mid-tier at best) and Little Mac, and Vinnie coming in 3rd with R.O.B.

Match videos from the tournament have been uploaded to the Clash Tournaments YouTube channel, and over here we've embedded the Winners', Losers' and Grand Finals matches, as well as three we thought were well-fought.

Poongko picks Evil Ryu, Decapre and... El Fuerte? Infiltration brings out his Hakan and Rolento - Ultra Street Fighter 4 ranked match footage

If you couldn't get enough of the Ultra Street Fighter 4 ranked match replay we posted yesterday of Infiltration's Chun-Li going up against Poongko's Yun, then boy do I have good news for you this morning.

As it turns out, Infiltration played that ranked match against Poongko while he was live on stream -- and he's posted a video highlight of that broadcast, of over an hour, where he's mostly playing against The Machine.

Although these are ranked matches on Xbox Live, the two top South Korean players picked a lot of the characters that you don't really seem them play in public that often: Abel, Decapre, Evil Ryu, Yun and El Fuerte for Poongko, and Rolento, Chun-Li and Hakan for Infiltration.

Crouching and Legendary Taunt cancel-able into anything? Ixion feels this simple buff would bring Dan back to life in USF4

IND|Ixion is one of the world's only active Dan players still using the character in Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournaments, and arguably the best Dan around. He may know more about this Street Fighter warrior than possibly any other player on the scene today, and unfortunately, the European "Danner" feels that his character is still not as effective as he should be in the latest Street Fighter 4 iteration.

Because of this, Ixion typed up a PDF with ways that Capcom could immensely improve the Saikyo master without making him overpowered. He suggests that Dan's crouching taunt and Legendary Taunt (Super Taunt) should be cancel-able into anything on hit or block.

Although this change does sound a bit extreme, the goal here is to give Dan an awesome tool to cope with his lacking mid-range game. Ixion notes that the taunt is quick to trade with a variety of attacks, so this wouldn't be something easily abuse-able. This buff would also allow Dan to punish long-range chip attempts, more effectively apply pressure, and more.

Luckily, KingBlackToof created an Ultra Street Fighter 4 mod that demonstrate these changes in action. There are a couple of videos showing off the taunt cancel below.

'My greatest loss was the Daigo parry moment, it revolutionized fighting games' - Justin Wong, Snake Eyez, and Chi-Rithy Capcom Pro Tour spotlights

The Capcom Pro Tour player spotlights keep rolling out, and in today's batch we have some very familiar faces.

To kick us off, Evil Geniuses' own Justin Wong shares his greatest achievement, favorite Capcom fighting game, and more. When asked which he feels is his greatest loss throughout the entirety of his career, Wong brought up one of the most memorable moments in fighting game history: the Daigo parry moment.

Justin feels that this particular moment not only opened his eyes to such a high level technique, but that it also helped revolutionize fighting games in general. After that match, Wong feels that players everywhere began buckling down and learning fighting games a bit more seriously.

That juicy bit of info isn't the only one you'll find here, though. Both Snake Eyez and CCG|Chi-Rithy answer similar questions, as the former explains why he decided to main Zangief, and the latter feels his greatest accomplishment was beating Justin Wong in Street Fighter 3 Third Strike at the age of 17.

Find all of this and more in the Capcom Pro Tour spotlights below.

Update: Harada says Tekken 7 budget is not lower than past years; team is creating a character to 'battle against Devil'

Updated: Earlier today, we reported on a summary of Harada's Tekken 7 location test discussion that stated the game's budget is 1/4 that of Tekken 5's.

The Tekken producer has since clarified on Twitter that this is actually not the case, and that development costs are cheaper than recent years. You can read his full tweet here.

We have reached out to Harada for more information.

Earlier: Harada says that the team is currently creating a new character to "battle against Devil" in Tekken 7.

In the original announcement trailer, we see a quick glimpse of Kazuya transforming into his devil form, so whether this means we'll see him as a playable character, the final boss of the game, or both is still yet to be determined. With Tekken 7's heavy focus on the Mishima clan -- the conclusion to the Mishima saga, to be exact -- it'll be interesting to see what the Tekken team has in mind for Devil and the character designed to take him on.

Hit the jump to check out more notable details from the Tekken 7 stream.
