General news roundup: Skullgirls' Fukua now available, King of Fighters 13 100% combos, 14 fancy Pandora combos in SFxT and more

Quite a bit of news/tech has been sent to us this past week, so instead of posting a bunch of rapid fire stories, we thought we'd round it all up in one spot for everyone to check out. This week's general roundup features Skullgirls Encore, Street Fighter X Tekken, King of Fighters 13, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate.

First up, Skullgirls Encore added some new content via an automatic update. Players on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC now have full, playable access to Fukua, the Filia clone that was originally intended to merely be an April Fool's joke.

Fukua's story mode has been added, along with two new stages: The Glass Canopy and Nightmare Crest. Several bug fixes and balance changes have also been implemented.

Editor's note: Fukua can be found by moving the cursor to the right of Big Band on the character select screen. Her portrait will not be visible until you hover over her.

Tiers for Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate launched on EventHubs

We've launched a new game for our tiers app, Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate.

Users have the ability to vote on each of the game's match ups, plus there are new discussion areas where you can talk about each of the bouts. We've also included the newest character, Marie Rose.

If you're knowledgeable about Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, please get in there and vote on the match ups you're familiar with.

Keep in mind this section updates once an hour, so keep checking back to see how the tiers are taking shape.

It's the wild west when a tier section is first launched, just a few votes can have a drastic impact on the list, but over time the picture gets much more defined and normalized. Please be patient as the list shapes up, and try not to freak out if things look a little odd at first.

We'll have tiers for another new game launched in the near future, usually every four or five days. Stay tuned.

Oh Mai Gawd... Why? SNK's fighting game goddess graces Wizardry Online MMORPG, has little elven babies with Samurai Shodown's Hanzo Hattori

Okay, so technically The King of Fighters's Mai Shiranui and Samurai Shodown's Hanzo Hattori can't make little babies in Japanese developer Gamepot's Wizard Online MMORPG -- there is no marriage system in the game.

But there are a lot of child-like, super-deformed versions of Mai and Hanzo running around in the Japanese version of the MMO now, thanks to a limited-time partnership with SNK Playmore that allows players to unlock avatar parts based on Mai and Hanzo.

If there's a silver lining to this story, then I suppose it's that Hanzo Hattori from Samurai Shodown is finally getting some action -- there hasn't been a new SamSho game in ages.

There's also a commemorative wallpaper featuring illustrations of the two characters put out by SNK Playmore's artists.

Hit the jump to see more pictures of the Mai Shiranui and Hanzo Hattori avatars, and the wallpapers.
