2 new characters headed to Dead or Alive 5: Last Round - 1 female and 1 male

The next installment in the Dead or Alive 5 series is currently in development, and this week's issue of Famitsu brings us fresh details on the update: Dead or Alive 5: Last Round. According to the Japanese gaming publication, Team Ninja's upcoming title will be receiving two new characters: 1 male and 1 female.

Famitsu states that this new woman-warrior will not be a returning character from past Dead or Alive games, so fans can expect a fresh female face. The report also explains that this character is being developed using Koei Tecmo's "Soft Engine" -- a new engine that helps better capture the “softness” and “warmth” of their fighters' bodies.

A new male fighter is also being introduced, but the magazine did not specify whether he will be a returning fighter or an original design.

Those who pick up Dead or Alive 5: Last Round can also look forward to additional hairstyles, and The Danger Zone stage, which is a returning arena from DoA an DoA2.

Last Round is set to be released on current and next-gen console in Spring 2015, and will be the final entry in the DoA5 series.

Gameplay debut for Guilty Gear Xrd newcomers Sin Kiske and Elphelt, this video from TGS covers their movesets and tools in detail

While we've known that the console version of Guilty Gear Xrd will be receiving two brand new characters, Sin Kiske and Elphelt, we haven't gotten to see any actual gameplay footage of the two outside of trailers yet.

Thankfully, TGS is a huge event that ArcSys don't want to miss, and as such they have brought their two new characters out in full force for the event. Below, you can find full runthroughs of the two characters, and gaze in awe or disgust (your call) at their movesets.

I must say that on a personal level, I love the idea of someone hitting people with a bouquet of flowers.

Ono tweets cryptic picture about new fighting game, states that staff has gathered to start work

Ono-san has tweeted an update on the newest Capcom fighting game. In it he states, "Staff has begun to gather for making new title!! Let's keep going!! ;D"

This comes shortly after a recent recruitment post revealing Capcom has once again paired up with Street Fighter 4 creator Dimps.

What makes the tweet more interesting, however, is the picture attached to it. In it, a litter of Kidrobot figures stand around Ono-san's signature Blanka.

While it's easy to jump to conclusions, since characters like Charlie are in the image, it's important to take a hint like this with a grain of salt.

However, if you want to throw caution to the wind and wildly speculate like me, check out the picture below.

'Nanase would be the best if she could convert throws' - Alioune's Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late tier list

France's Alioune has been a staunch lover of Arc System Works and developer French Bread's PS3 fighting game Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late (UNIEL) pretty much from the very first day.

He's even gone as far as to call it one of the best fighting games on Twitter which, along with his numerous other tweets on the game, has certainly got me curious about just exactly how good it is (I just began learning the mechanics the other day).

And today Alioune has published his personal tier list for the game. If, like me, you've been thinking of picking up the game but don't know who are the go-to characters to start with, Alioune's UNIEL tier list could serve as a good reference.

Sometime in the near future, EventHubs will be launching a tiers section for UNIEL where you'll be able to vote on the match-ups you're familiar with, and see the community's consensus on the game's tiers at a glance.

Until the UNIEL tiers section has launched, Alioune's list serves as a great reference; check it out below.
