New info and trailer for Dissidia: Final Fantasy: Tecmo Koei's Team Ninja will be leading development, PS4 release, fight with summons, and more

A recent closed press conference revealed the details on Dissidia: Final Fantasy. For one, Tecmo Koei's Team Ninja, known for the Dead or Alive series, will be helping in development of the title. As expected in a fighting game, it will run at 60-frames per second.

The arcade game is actually being created using modified PS4 technology. This means a PlayStation 4 release is imminent. Unfortunately, that release won't be for another year after the arcade version, which is due out in Fall 2015.

Perhaps most exciting, though, players will be able to use Final Fantasy summons in battle. In the trailer, Lightning sees fit to bring out Ifrit in battle. Also, a beautiful sweep of Shinra is shown. Check out some screenshots of both below, then make sure to watch the full trailer.

Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden's latest trailer confirms 20 of the game's playable fighters

Publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment and developer Arc System Works's upcoming 3DS 2D fighting game Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden was briefly touched on in today's Nintendo Direct broadcast for Japan.

During Nintendo Direct, approximately 90 seconds' worth of in-game footage from the fighter was shown, and after the broadcast was over, a new three-minute-long trailer was also published on the Nintendo Japan channel.

What's interesting about this new trailer is that it reveals for the first time that although there will be over 100 Dragon Ball Z characters making an appearance in the game, just over 20 of them are actually part of the playable roster -- the rest are Z assists.

The trailer also revealed who 20 of these fighters are:

Hyper Dragon Ball Z - fan made project akin to Capcom's 1990s fighters shows off what they've been up to

It's been almost a year since we looked at the fan-made project Hyper Dragonball Z.

It's a 2D fighting game which the creators say is very much in the vein of Capcom fighters from the 1990s.

The crew has been coding some AI (artificial intelligence) routines for the characters, so you have a lively opponent to spar with when you load up the game, and they've uploaded some fights featuring Gohan, Majin Vegeta and Freeza for people to check out.

This project shouldn't be confused with the 3DS title Arc System Works is releasing titled Dragon Ball Z: Super Extreme Butoden.

Here are a few screens from Hyper Dragon Ball Z, you can find the AI gameplay below.

Stop-motion Dragon Ball Z is amazing! Watch Broly fight against Goku and his owner in this awesome short

Now, I realize that this video may not be directly related to fighting games. However, with Dragon Ball Z: Super Extreme Butoden currently in the works, we feel this is something our readers might want to see. It's just too good not to share!

A video creator named Jordan Tseng has an impressive figurine collection that he doesn't just use for display. Instead, Tseng creates stop-motion shorts in which his figures engage in battle, perform entertaining acts, and more.

In his latest work, we see Dragon Ball Z's Broly fight against Goku and Jordan himself (well, his hand, anyway). This stop-motion short is exceptionally well done and an absolute joy to watch for any DBZ fans out there.

Arrogance, overconfidence and awesome action poses; see who the bigger loser is in this One Minute Melee bout between Dan Hibiki and Hercule

Oaf squares off against oaf as Street Fighter's Dan Hibiki takes on Dragon Ball Z's Hercule, also known as Mr. Satan, in ScrewAttack's One Minute Melee!

This is something of an anti-dream battle as both of these characters exist more as jokes in their respective universes than anything else.

Unlike Death Battle, their sister show on ScrewAttack!, One Minute Melee is raw, non researched combat. This is simply a bout for entertainment's purpose, though you can vote on who you think would be the winner in a true fight.

With skills that are sub-par at best and egos that are easily over 9,000, hilarity will surely ensue in this battle of buffoons.

Hit the jump to find out who wins!

Dead or Alive 5 Last Round for PC: Minimum specs revealed, no online for up to 3 months, lacks certain features in PS4 version (Soft Engine, etc)

Now that the PC version of Dead or Alive 5 Last Round (DOA5LR) is just two weeks away from its March 30, 2015 release date, Team Ninja has released some very important information that gamers should be aware of before making their purchases: minimum and recommended PC specifications, as well as some additional product specs comparing the PC port to the PS3 and PS4 versions of the same game.

Before we get into the minimum and recommended PC specs, it's important to note that although the Steam PC version of DOA5LR will support resolutions of up to Ultra High Definition/4K (if your PC will run it), in terms of the game's effects and features the PC port is actually somewhere in between its PS3 and PS4 cousins.

Here's a helpful chart that Team Ninja put together that highlights the differences between the PC port, and the PS3/PS4 ones:


Click image for translated product specifications

In summary, the PC port is equivalent to that of the PS3 version, with a few (but not all) PS4 bells and whistles added -- shadows, character selection IU (for selecting hairstyles, etc) -- and the ability to display up to UHD/4K resolution.

Read on for the minimum and recommended PC specs for the game.

Sega's Blade Arcus from Shining is like Street Fighter 4 with Marvel-style assists; has ambiguous cross-ups, vortex set-ups - tournament footage

The A-cho arcade in Shijou, Kyoto has just posted some high-level footage of Sega's Blade Arcus from Shining fighting game, from the D-1 Ultimate Climax Blade national tournament qualifier that was held earlier today.

And when I saw it I was shocked to see that the game shared many similarities with Ultra Street Fighter 4. It had me drawn in like a troll moth to a flame.

Thus far, I've always imagined Blade Arcus to be like a smoother, prettier version of SNK's The Last Blade. And since it's an anime fighter, I had presumed that it was a combo-heavy game.

But it turns out, as you'll see in the high-level tournament footage below, Blade Arcus is really more about footsies, set-ups, and frame traps.

The pacing just looks so much like USF4 that the developers at Studio Saizensen (which translates to "Studio Frontlines"; they previously made Code of Princess and Shining Hearts) must have been inspired by Capcom fighting games, at the very least.

There are also Marvel-style assists here; check out the footage below.

ClayFighter is coming back in 2016; this HD remaster will add air dashes, double jumps, and much more

It was announced this weekend that Interplay and Drip Drop Games will be resurrecting the ClayFighter franchise next year.

ClayFighter will see a HD remaster that will borrow the best content from all of the previous games. The press release states that the roster will include familiar faces such as Bad Mr. Frosty, Blue Suede Goo, Earthworm Jim, Hoppy, Boogerman, Tiny, and the total playable character amount will come in at over 20 fighters. Additionally, 20 classic stages are set to return.

Things get even more interesting, though, as the new title is also receiving new game mechanics such as air dashing, double jumps, reversals, and counters. Each character will also come equipped with their own super moves and Claytalities.

"ClayFighter HD" will come with completely remastered audio and hi-res visuals. The game is getting a PC release sometime in 2016.

Dead or Alive 5 Last Round: 'explosively destructible' costumes (Senran Kagura collaboration) are next in line for DLC

On February 27 Koei Tecmo Games announced on a Famitsu live stream show that a Dead or Alive 5 Last Round X Senran Kagura collaboration costume set is currently in the works.

And today, Famitsu has published the first screenshot for the (eagerly anticipated?) DLC pack. The screenshow you see below is taken from the PS4/XB1 development build of the game.

At first glance, the costumes you see in the screenshot above may not look like the sort of "oversexualized" costumes that certain DOA5 community leaders are pushing to be soft-banned at tournaments.

But wait till you see the costumes in action; commenting on the single screenshot, Dead or Alive 5 Last Round producer and Team Ninja chief Yosuke Hayashi said that the costumes you saw are still a work-in-progress, and that the team absolutely plans on incorporating the "explosively destructible" aspect of the costumes, which is a signature trait for Marvelous AQL's Senran Kagura series.

Want to see what the "explosively destructible" costumes in Senran Kagura are like? You can get a taste of in the following trailers below, of Marvelous AQL's Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit for the PS Vita and Senran Kagura: Estival Versus (PS4, PS Vita). Needless to say, this is NSFW.

The Dead or Alive community aims to ban over 120 overly-sexualized costumes in Dead or Alive 5: Last Round

The latest iteration of Dead or Alive has been out for a few weeks now, and the overall reception seems to be rather positive.

As with the introduction of any new title, we expect to see a surge in tournament frequency and attendance. With the coming flux of attention, the community has decided to put a soft ban on no less than 129 costumes that have been deemed too revealing for general audiences.

The Dead or Alive franchise has been known for its highly-sexualized portrayal of women in clothing that leaves little to the imagination.

Acknowledging that some of the game's content may be unsuitable for the more professional atmosphere they'd like to promote at tournaments, some members of the community have come together to regulate what is acceptable and what is not. Below is a quote from Free Step Dodge, DOA's go-to forum site.

"This is a movement that was discussed by several members of the community to try and help turn around the image that has plagued the franchise. DOA has always been known for its over-sexualized females and just that alone has pushed people away from even trying the game. Sex Appeal in the DOA franchise will never go away but we, the community, want people to take it seriously and started the costume ban at offline tournaments to force people to focus more on the game play aspect of the game. This is a soft ban and is at the discretion of the tournament organizer (TO) running the game at the event. However we HIGHLY encourage people to not use the suggested costumes on stream for something like Top 8."

Hit the jump to see what costumes are banned and hear what one Free Step Dodge administrative representative has to say on the subject.
