Primal Rage 2 prototype arcade cabinet (1 of 2 functioning machines in the world) now playable at Gallopping Ghost Arcade in Illinois

If you consider yourself a connoisseur of fighting games in general, there's a very good chance that you're familiar with Atari's Primal Rage.

First released as an arcade game in 1994, and subsequently ported to all of the major consoles at the time, Primal Rage was a fighter in which you picked to play as one of seven gigantic beasts.

The fighting game was considered successful, and Atari actually set out to make a sequel, this time featuring anthropomorphic deities who could transform into giant beasts -- but never finished it.

Guilty Gear Xrd is a 'milder' version of past entries; creator Daisuke Ishiwatari reveals thinking behind Xrd's design decisions

Famitsu.com has published a long interview with Arc System Works's Daisuke Ishiwatari, the creator of the Guilty Gear series, on the subject of Guilty Gear Xrd coming home to consoles -- PS3 and PS4.

In this in-depth interview, Ishiwatari reveals some of the thinking behind a lot of the key design decisions they've made with Guilty Gear Xrd.

For instance, as Guilty Gear Xrd is positioned not simply as the latest instalment of the Guilty Gear series, but rather as Arc System Works's latest or most advanced fighting game yet, one of the key goals with Xrd is to broaden the user base by making the series's mechanics more accessible to new users.

"In many ways, you could say that we developed this with this generation's players in mind," Ishiwatari said.

This has resulted in Xrd being a "milder" iteration of Guilty Gear, compared to previous entries.

More on the specific changes made to Xrd -- as well as Ishiwatari's thoughts on what made Street Fighter 2 and Virtua Fighter 2 so successful back in the day is available below.

Female Tengu unveiled as Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate's latest roster addition in new trailer; comes to consoles alongside Phase 4 in late June

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is getting a third new DLC character, after Marie Rose and Phase 4, and the new playable character is said to be 1018 years old. Which most certainly means she's not human, in spite of her looks..

Unveiled in the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine, the new character is simply called "Female Tengu" (or "NyoTengu" in Japanese). .

She is a member of the same mysterious race of ancient mythical creatures that DOA2's final boss, Tengu, belonged to, and as such possesses a number of moves similar to that former DOA character. But she also comes with a number of new moves all of her own -- mostly making use of her flight ability..

According to Famitsu, Female Tengu is slated to come to both the arcade and console versions of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate sometime in late June. The console patch that makes Female Tengu playable will also add Phase 4 (who's already playable in the arcade version) to the roster..

Here are some pictures of the new character that Famitsu has published; a new character trailer for Female Tengu is also available after the break.

Guilty Gear Xrd set for release in North America this fall, still only for PS3 and PS4, will be available to play at E3

The latest entry, which has been a long-time coming, in the long-lived Guilty Gear series has now been officially confirmed to be released in North America for PS3 and PS4 this fall. At the moment, no announcement has been made for a release in other non-Japan territories, such as Europe.

The localization is being handled by Aksys, who regularly bring over niche Japanese titles to foreign territories, and they promise that the latest title from ArcSys (perhaps their similarity in company names is part of the reason they get along so well) will retain signature systems from earlier Guilty Gear titles, such as Roman Cancels, but that many of them have been "significantly expanded and improved."

Whether the console version will include additional content beyond what is already out in Arcades in Japan also remains currently unclear.

Thanks to Mai Shi Long Eezlong and originalhuman for sending this in.

CyberConnect 2 would love to see Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution at EVO, game developed with input from SF, KoF and Tekken producers

It's fairly uncommon to hear Japanese companies talk about the competitive scene of their fighting games, particularly when said games are based on an existing IP.

CyberConnect2, however, are very much aware of the Evolution World Championship series, and have gone on record in an interview with Siliconera saying that they'd very much like for their latest entry in the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm video game series to be represented at the event in the future.

Below, you'll find the excerpt where CyberConnect2's CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama mentions their desire to have the game present at EVO.

We’d really love to see Ninja Storm at events like EVO, like with Tekken, so, we built it with that in mind. Also, this game is going to be sold in September 2014—and we’re hoping to sell around 1.5 million copies worldwide.

Hit the jump to hear what else was said regarding the competitive nature of the upcoming game.
