'If they're in a hurry for a response, I guess I'll have to decline', says Kazunoko regarding the upcoming Canada Cup Master Series

We reported recently on a very exciting pay-per-view event set to be hosted by the Canada Cup crew entitled the Canada Cup Master Series, which will attempt to pit the 4 Canada Cup champions together with 4 other players who will be decided by qualifiers in a first-to-7 round robin, similar to how the Topanga League runs.

While the 2012 and 2013 champions, RZR|Xian and Qanba|Xiao Hai respectively, have confirmed their attendance, the 2010 and 2011 champions, MCZ|Daigo and Kazunoko, have not. When asked about the issue, Kazunoko said that he might not attend the event after all, citing scheduling issues.

This was mentioned while Kazunoko was streaming Ultra Street Fighter 4 matches, and EventHubs' very own MajinTenshinhan has stepped in to translate what Kazunoko had to say.

Kazunoko: Am I attending Canada Cup? Well, that all depends on Topanga A League, doesn't it? Well, if they overlap, I won't be able to... It's difficult. Yeah, difficult.

Continue below to read the rest of what Kazunoko had to say.

What can Guile do with two meters? More than you might think, as shown by this video

Guile has been a very popular character in the Street Fighter series since its rise to popularity back with Street Fighter 2 in the early '90s, but he's never been considered a very combo-heavy character, which still holds true in the Street Fighter 4 series.

That's not to say that he can't unleash some devilish combos, though. This video from Wade Sikander shows just what Guile can be capable of when he has two meters. Also worth noting is that these combos build one meter, so even though you'll have to start from two, the effective cost is just one meter.

You can find the video itself below.

Wild mechanic in new Super Smash Bros. gives extra stock or +1 to KO score, more screenshots

Masahiro Sakurai, creator of the Super Smash Bros. series, continues his Pic of the Day series -- a weekly event in which he uploads select screenshots of the upcoming Wii U and 3DS Smash titles. In a recent "Pic" Sakurai featured an image of a new item that can be used in-game: The Namco Special Flag.

According to the developer, this particular item has the ability to grant the user with an extra stock or +1 to their KO score, depending on which game mode you are playing. Below you will find what Sakurai wrote.

Pic of the day. If you manage to raise this Special Flag for long enough, an additional KO count will be added to your score in a time match, or you'll get an extra stock for a stock match. When this appears on the stage, the fight for the flag becomes a fierce battle of tactics, which makes things pretty interesting.

From Sakurai's message, it seems that raising the flag fully may take a bit of time, making it so that the item can not be abused. We'll just have to wait for footage of it in action before we can make that judgement, however.

Turtle Guile gets his own game in 'Takareet Fighter II' smartphone app; Hadouken ramen-serving game to come soon

In Japan, there is a fairly popular short animation series entitled "Eagle Talon" that is loosely based on Capcom's Street Fighter series.

In Eagle Talon, the protagonists are a team of evil villains -- who just happen to sport character motifs similar to the world warriors in Street Fighter II -- plotting to take over the world. Their arch-rival in the series is a superhero named Deluxe Fighter, who's said to be a "narcissistic and largely incapable bully".

Although the anime series's characters share a couple of similarities with those in Street Fighter II, ultimately they are original creations, which means that unlike in the situation with High School Girl, Eagle Talon creator Ryo Ono did not have to seek Capcom's permission for anything.

But Capcom is nevertheless aware of Ryo Ono's work. In fact, today a "Takareet Fighter II: Turtle Guile" smartphone game app was released that sees the characters from both Eagle Talon and Street Fighter II cross-over into the same universe.

Check out the images for the game below, along with a video demonstration of the app done by the legendary Takahashi Meijin.

What happens when a former SSF4 EVO champ, an EVO champ runner-up, and a Yun player walks into a bar with a copy of Ultra Street Fighter 4 for consoles, which has (finally) been released in Japan?

Why, there's only one thing to do, of course: turn on Edition Select, hop into Versus Mode, and face your nightmares. In order to figure out once and for all who the strongest Street Fighter character of all time is.

On Kachitagari TV this week, that's exactly what Bonchan, RZR|Fuudo and Kazunoko do. The trio not only play the strongest versions of the characters they're associated with (Sagat, Fei Long and Yun, respectively), but also a bevy of other fighters, such as Seth, Akuma, Rufus, Guy and even Ryu.

Who will come out on top? Find out starting from 01:18:00 in the Twitch archive embedded below.

There was also some footage of two Topanga Banzuke matches, played during this past weekend, on the stream: a first-to-two set between Seritasan (Chun-Li) and EX Pugera (Ibuki), and another one between Bonchan (Sagat) and MCZ|Tokido (Akuma). The Topanga matches start at 01:00:00.

Crazy combo beats Bowser in 7 seconds, Super Wavedash used to perfection, and more: Incredible Super Smash Bros. Melee Samus TAS run

We were recently pointed in the direction of a stupendous Super Smash Bros. Melee TAS run that features the main Metroid heroine herself -- Samus.

This play-through fully completes Adventure Mode with Ms. Aran, and although this video was created late last year, it is still an absolute marvel to behold.

Using tool-assistance, the on-screen Samus is capable of performing incredibly advanced techniques and devastating attacks with precision. You'll immediately notice the top-notch use of Samus' Super Wavedash, a technique that allows her to zip across the stage by dropping one of her bombs and hitting left or right at the perfect time.

If you're a Smash Bros. fan, you'll definitely want to check this one out.

Ultras without the cinematic camera angles? Take a very zoomed out look at every character's comeback move in USF4

Have you ever wondered what the Ultras in Ultra Street Fighter 4 would look like if you removed the extreme camera angles and took several steps back? If so, you're in luck because moo422 has put together a video that gives us a very zoomed out glance at what these Ultras look like from far away.

Naturally, the cinematic-animation Ultras prove to be the most interesting, and some even result in the character flying all round the training room. Below are just a handful of screenshots to give you an idea of what you might see here.

Every character on the roster is represented here, and each one performs both Ultras in the video. You can find time-stamps in the video description if you'd like to jump straight to a specific character, or sit back, relax, and watch from start to finish.
