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.

First-ever Killer Instinct Stage Ultra shown off in season 2 launch trailer - watch the wrecking ball in TJ Combo's stage destroy Fulgore

The Killer Instinct season 2 launch trailer that was released earlier this morning has given fans everywhere much to talk about. Most of us have been so busy discussing the new characters that were shown off, that we completely missed the first-ever KI Stage Ultra that aired at the very end of the video.

We first got word of the new match-enders last month when a Maya gameplay clip featured a quick look at her move listing. There we saw that below the standard "Ultra" command was one for "Stage Ultra," a finisher that is limited to specific stages and where you stand upon said stage.

In today's KI season 2 trailer, we get to see TJ Combo perform a Stage Ultra on his respective stage. Unfortunately, Fulgore is his victim...

Which Quan Chi is the meanest of them all? Aesthetics for Sorcerer, Warlock, Summoner variations in Mortal Kombat X compared

NetherRealm Studios has released a batch of visuals that depicts and compares the aesthetic differences between all three variations of Quan Chi in Mortal Kombat X.

The character was first announced and shown off in a character introduction trailer a little more than two weeks ago. Although it gave us a good look at the various special moves and play styles usable by each of the three variations, as far as aesthetics are concerned these stills do a far greater job at highlighting the differences visually.

Mortal Kombat X is due for release on the PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One platforms on April 14, 2015. Gamers who pre-order a copy of the game will receive Goro as a bonus character free-of-charge.

Yoshi Bomb High Jump glitch lets him timer-scam, Villager warps when he pockets Pac-man's trampoline - Super Smash Bros. 3DS bugs roundup

Yoshi might very well be the most glitch-prone character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

We reported last month that Yoshi's Egg Lay neutral B special move can supersize his opponents over and over in Multi-Man Smash, and a little more than a week ago that his up+B Egg Throw special lets him warp back to the edge of the stage when performed in a specific sequence.

But it looks like we missed one that might have some consequences in competitive play, should custom moves be allowed in a tournament. Some of you may already know this, but when Yoshi replaces his up+B special with the High Jump custom move, by performing a down+B Yoshi Bomb and quickly following that up with a High Jump, you can launch Yoshi into the stratosphere of the stage without killing him -- essentially allowing you to timer-scam whenever you'd like.

You can take a look at how that works in the video below, along with two other bugs in the game we're taking a quick look at today.

Uryo's rushdown Decapre: counter-hit cr.MP into UC2 on reaction, Psycho Sting FADC resets, close shaves and more - Ultra Street Fighter 4 online

The other day when I raised the possibility that NuckleDu might quite possibly be the best Decapre player in the world right now, it was met with some discontent as a couple of EventHubbers went in on me, saying that I should not be jumping to such conclusions based on a highlights video edited to specifically show how good NuckleDu is.

After watching this video of Uryo playing entire Endless Battles matches for about 20 minutes, I think I get that. It's not just the few moments that shine -- it's about the overall performance.

And Uryo's performance in this video, edited together from a Nico Live stream that he recently did, was simply mesmerizing from start to end. There was just something effortless about the way he rushes down his opponent with Decapre.

And if that's not enough, there are those flashy moments where his reactions and character knowledge really do shine, as well. Such as when he hit-confirms an UC2 combo from a single counter-hit cr.MP.

So go grab some popcorn, get yourself comfy, and prepare to be mesmerized by Uryo's play in the video below.

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.
