Every color palette for all currently announced characters in Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Earlier today Famitsu released a large batch of Super Smash Bros. 3DS images that feature basic move info and details about each of the currently announced characters on the roster. As an added perk, these official Smash spreads included a look at all eight color palettes for each of the aforementioned fighters.

All color options for every currently announced character are included here, (sans Little Mac who has a total of 16 palettes.)

Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U is the first in the franchise to include this many color options for players to choose from. With the handheld Smash title dropping in Japan this Friday, today you can get an early look at which color you may want to select once you get your hands on the game.

Find out where the young Fei Long master places his character in CJ Truth's Ultra Street Fighter 4 Tier List

Many professional players have been releasing their tier lists for Ultra Street Fighter 4, with the most recent rankings coming from BJ Unchained and Kelvin Jeon.

CEO|CJ Truth has made a name for himself by being one of the youngest and most successful Fei Long players in the United States. Proven to be a character loyalist, he has stuck with the Bruce Lee "inspired" fighter for much of his Street Fighter career.

Although this tier list doesn't use Eventhubs's excellent tiers section (so it won't include match-up details), it's still a great a look at how this Florida-based player views the cast in general.

Julio's tier rankings for Yun in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Today we have another Ultra Street Fighter 4 tier ranking for you to check out. Using the tiers section right here on EventHubs, MMG|Julio has cast his votes for Yun in the latest iteration in the series.

Hit the image below to see where Julio feels Yun stacks up against the rest of the Ultra Street Fighter 4 cast. Feel free to let us know in the comments if you agree with this list or not, and why.

These were the most popular games at Summer Jam 8 - Soul Calibur 5 beat nine other titles for entrants

Summer Jam 8 took place at the end of last month, and this particular major tournament was host to a hefty number of competitors spanning across 10+ different fighting games. With games like Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, and even Ultra Street Fighter 4 making their first Summer Jam appearance, many may be wondering how many players competed in each title.

By using the brackets over on Big E Gaming's Challonge page, we were able to determine which of the games provided were the most popular based on the number of entrants each one had.

Below you will find the entrance numbers for all fighting games, (except for Super Smash Bros. Melee and Project M, as they were not available on Challonge at this time.)

Daigo's AMA (Part 2): Bonchan is a weak character in Real Street Fighter - PS4 or XB1, Game of Thrones, and other questions

In this second part of the transcript for MCZ|Daigo's "Ask Me Anything" livestream. The Beast answers questions such as: who he'd love to challenge next after defeating RZR|Xian and Infiltration in long sets, what's the secret behind the Umeshoryu, why he's more eager to qualify into the Capcom Cup this year, and who would win in a real street fight between MCZ|Tokido, MCZ|Mago, Bonchan and himself.

MCZ|Daigo also answers quite a number of personal trivia questions, such as what his favorite ramen flavor is, and if he prefers the PS4 or the XB1 when it comes to next-generation consoles.

Check out the translation below, as well as part one of the transcript if you have yet to see it.

Sako and Mago demoted to Topanga B League, will join the 16-player fight for the chance to return to A League

The full line-up for Topanga League 4 (B League) is now out, and among the 16 players slugging it out for a chance to enter the A League is Hori|Sako, who was the champion of the first Topanga League.

Hori|Sako was previously in the A League for Topanga League 3, but has now been demoted to B League status along with MCZ|Mago. The two pro gamers appear to be confident of re-entering the A League, however, now that Sako has "awakened his inner Capoeira" and Mago calling himself the "new and improved" 2D God.

Other hot favorites included in the 16-man league include MCZ|Tokido, "Mr. Condor Spire" Kouji KOG, and BE|Nemo. They are joined by several relatively fresh faces, including Ninomae, who says in the Topanga League 4 (B) trailer that he's ready to show the world what Japan's Rose players are made of.

Check out the trailer below, along with a full line-up of players. We've also included Yossan (Juri) and Sasaki's (Cody) qualifying matches for the league.

Daigo's AMA (Part 1): 'Nemo is a stronger player than I am; I would like to release an English version of my book but...'

Last night, while West Coast Warzone 4 was still taking place, Mad Catz's Zhi and Daigo held a livestream where Daigo "The Beast" Umehara answered a bunch of fan questions garnered through a Ask Me Anything thread on the "I Am A" subreddit.

The AMA live stream was fairly long, coming in at just over one and a half hours. Throughout the AMA session, MCZ|Daigo answered questions such as if he has plans to release an English version of his book, who he thinks are the next-generation fighting game gods, and if he feels he might have beaten John Choi if he had pulled out Ryu as a sub-character for the match.

Some of Daigo's responses are on the Reddit AMA thread, but as it turns out, The Beast actually answered a lot more questions -- but forgot to hit save on his written responses a whole bunch of times.

In an attempt to bring you all of the questions, we're currently sifting through the entire stream archive to transcribe for you all of the questions that MCZ|Daigo answered -- but we're not even halfway through the stream at this point, and the transcript is already quite long.

So here is part one of MCZ|Daigo's "Ask Me Anything" interview, hosted by Mad Catz's very own Zhi.

Rosalina & Luma, Greninja, Pac-Man are top tier too? Day 2 Super Smash Bros. tier impressions from Japan

It's now officially the end of Day 2 for Super Smash Bros. 3DS in Japan. After having spent more time with the game's online For Glory mode, a couple of Japanese Smash players haven taken to the forums to share their thoughts on character tiers.

There's also quite a bit of discussion on whether or not Little Mac is as strong as most people think he is -- at the moment he's certainly one of the most common characters you'd run into online.

To start things off, here is a tier list from a Smash player who's clocked 260 For Glory battles with an 85% win rate:

First official screenshots of Maya and City of Dawn stage in Killer Instinct season 2

Microsoft has just released a hefty batch of screenshots that give us the first full look at Killer Instinct season 2's second announced character, Maya. Previously, the MS team only gave us a glimpse at Maya's leg and one of her daggers, so it's nice to finally see what her full character model looks like.

Additionally, we get to see what her stage, City of Dawn, looks like in-game.

Check out the images below.

Killer Instinct season 2, along with Maya, hits Xbox One consoles on October 15th.

Maya makes her gameplay debut in new official Killer Instinct trailer, mummy-like character and stage teased

We've seen some static images of Maya in action, but we've yet to see her fluid movements in-game. Now, you get that chance. Look no further than right below to see some Maya gameplay, including an ominous teaser of a new character.

At the end of the trailer you'll see a fairly large tease at what appears to be a mummy-like character. A new backdrop is also shown, and it looks to be some sort of laboratory in which rituals are performed. Microsoft previously noted that the third character to be shown for Killer Instinct season 2 is a new fighter to the franchise, so this mysterious being is more than likely not a revamped character from past KI iterations.

Check out a few screenshots of this new character, below.

Comeback mechanics are all the rage nowadays - In Super Smash Bros. 4, the attacker's percentage affects how far the opponent will be sent flying

It's hardly a secret that the higher percentage you have in Super Smash Bros., the further you get sent flying. That's just, oh, you know, the whole point of the game.

What Super Smash Bros. 4 brings, however, which has also gone completely unmentioned on the official site, is that not only does your own percentage factor in — but the attacker's percentage does, too.

This technique, currently referred to as "The Rage Effect", is shown in this video with a side-by-side comparison of how far Bowser gets sent flying by Mario's up-smash when Mario himself is at different percentages.

With comeback mechanics being present in all manner of fighting games today, from Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom all the way to Tekken, it might not come as much of a surprise that Super Smash Bros. has adopted the same mantra. What is surprising, though, is that the detail-savvy Sakurai neglected to mention this to us. You can see it in action below.

Only 120 Super Smash Bros. 3DS matches required to unlock all characters, down from 450 in SSBB and 1,000 in SSBM

Along with confirmation of the secret characters in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS comes the unlock conditions for them all.

While there are usually various ways to unlock the same characters in a Super Smash Bros. game, scattered all across its various modes, it appears that the easiest method this time around is to simply play a bunch of matches -- you unlock a new character after playing every 10 matches.

With 12 hidden characters to unlock, that's a mere 120 matches you have to play. That's nothing compared to 450 in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and 1,000 for Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Check out the order of the unlocks below.

Want to be good like Nemo? Then learn to play Rolento with these Ultra Street Fighter 4 tutorial and combo videos

Rolento a low-tier character, you say? Hold that thought!

Yesterday at West Coast Warzone 4, Ultra Street Fighter 4 Rolento character specialist BE|Nemo showed us that the former Mad Gear gang officer isn't someone you can simply write off in the game. This soldier's got some deadly tools.

If you feel like picking up the character after seeing BE|Nemo's amazing footwork at WCW4, Bafael has got a fairly comprehensive tutorial that covers most aspects of Rolento's game.

And while we're at it, we've also included two Rolento combo videos just so you can get a better idea of the juggle potential for the character's various moves.
