Which pool of players are you in? And, more important, which pool of players are notable players in?

Watch Ryu make funny faces as he tells you why he's going to Shadowloo Showdown V; epic trailer ft. Kyle Herbert (voice of Ryu)

Shadowloo Showdown V is taking place from August 29 to 31 at the CQ Hotel in Melbourne, Australia.

And to tell you why you should consider making a trip there (or at least, reserve the weekend for watching the stream at home), tournament organiser Shadowlogic has brought out some very big guns.

They've recruited to their cause someone that even the almighty M. Bison could never bring over to his side.

I'm referring to, Mr. Street Fighter himself. The man. The legend. The protagonist. Ryu.

Check out the trailer for Shadowloo Showdown V, where Ryu makes funny faces (kudos to Michael Shiao Chen for the animation work) as he tells you, with his soul channeled through the vocal chords of Kyle Herbert (the real voice of Ryu), why he'll be at Shadowloo Showdown V.

Tokido adapts to Xian in the grand finals for King of Fighters 13 at SEAM 2014; BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Top 8s videos

At SEAM 2014, Ultra Street Fighter 4 wasn't the only game that former teammates (back when Xian was sponsored by Mad Catz) and long-time fierce rivals RZR|Xian and MCZ|Tokido squared off in.

They also faced each other in the grand finals for The King of Fighters XIII.

This isn't the first time RZR|Xian and MCZ|Tokido has played against each other in KOF13, of course. They were in this very position, fighting for the champion's spot, in the KOF13 grand finals at Shadowloo Showdown 2013, where RZR|Xian ultimately won.

This time around, Tokido has returned with a slightly different team line-up, replacing Kim Kaphwan with Chin Gentsai, possibly as a means to better adapt to Xian's tactics.

But will the character switch pay off?

Find out in the archived match footage from SEAM 2014, provided by the Toughcookietv YouTube channel.

They've also got play-offs match footage for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma and Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

BlazBlue creator Toshimichi Mori: Tsubaki was originally conceptualised as a lesbian (yuri) character

BlazBlue: Bloodedge Experience, the latest light novel spin-off for the fighting game franchise, was recently released in Japan on June 20.

To commemorate the novel's release, 4Gamer met up with BlazBlue series creator Toshimichi Mori along with Bloodedge Experience's author Mako Komao for a little chat about the newly-released book and also the fighting game franchise in general.

Most of this interview was about the BlazBlue: Bloodedge EXperience as well as the other light novel spin-offs for the franchise, so we won't go into detail for that.

But what some of you BlazBlue fans may find interesting is the story that Mori shared about how the character Makoto Nanaya came to be -- she was created to fill a gap.

Sako talks about his experience playing BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, and why he's only competing in Ultra Street Fighter 4 at EVO 2014

Famitsu has published a new interview with Hori|Sako as part of their on-going Hori Densetsu Dot Com series of columns ("Densetsu" being the Japanese word for "Legend") .

This interview was conducted shortly after Sako's wife Akiki gave birth to their daughter on April 17 (the same day Ultra Street Fighter 4 went into service in Japanese arcades), and slightly before BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma was patched on May 14.

In it, Sako speaks mostly about his experience with BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, a game that he had been playing while waiting for Ultra Street Fighter 4 to come out.

In fact, Sako's been enjoying the game so much that one of Famitsu's editors, who introduces himself as the middle child of the Toyoizumi Brothers, bought Sako the PS Vita version of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma as a gift to celebrate the birth of his daughter.

Sako: That made me really happy (laughs).

Hori representative: But that has nothing to do with the baby!

Akiki (Sako's wife): Recently Sako's been taking to the PS Vita a lot. As I've been in the hospital all this while and Sako's been here every night, he hasn't been able to game as much, and I kinda felt bad. So I said to him, "it's okay to go buy a PS Vita game to play in the hospital."
