These were the most popular games at Summer Jam 8 - Soul Calibur 5 beat nine other titles for entrants

Summer Jam 8 took place at the end of last month, and this particular major tournament was host to a hefty number of competitors spanning across 10+ different fighting games. With games like Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, and even Ultra Street Fighter 4 making their first Summer Jam appearance, many may be wondering how many players competed in each title.

By using the brackets over on Big E Gaming's Challonge page, we were able to determine which of the games provided were the most popular based on the number of entrants each one had.

Below you will find the entrance numbers for all fighting games, (except for Super Smash Bros. Melee and Project M, as they were not available on Challonge at this time.)

Who is top tier? Persona 4 Arena Ultimax character tiers according to Souji, Arc Revolution Cup 2014 finalist

Although there is still about a month to go before Persona 4 Arena Ultimax gets released in North America, the game was launched this week in Japan and Asia.

Over here at EventHubs we launched the tiers for P4AU on the day of the game's Japanese release. But like we thought, not a lot of folks in the FGC are quite familiar with the game's match-up knowledge yet. Heck, I've been playing quite a bit of the game myself, and I still don't know which match-ups are favorable and which are unfavorable for my character.

So we thought we'd take a look at what the Japanese FGC have to say when it comes to tiers for P4AU. Specifically, last month's Arcadia magazine published a tier list put together by Souji, who mains Teddie and came in 2nd at both the Arc Revolution Cup 2013 and 2014 tournaments (the 2014 grand finals were held today).

Keep in mind that the tier list you see in the images below only cover the characters who're available in the arcade version; console-exclusive characters like Rise, Ken, and Adachi are still unknowns at this point.

Tiers for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax launched, stats now available

To coincide with the Japanese release of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, we've launched tiers for the game, and archived the old ones for the previous release.

General news roundup: P4AU Margaret trailer, DOA5U maid costumes, KOF13 PC for under $7, UNIEL tutorials from UltraChen TV

In this general fighting game news round-up, we go over a couple of brief news items for the following games: Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, The King of Fighters 13, and Under Night In-Birth EXE Late.

All of the news items covered this time around are fairly recent developments. Unfortunately, as each individual item had not been newsworthy enough when it broke to stand on its own, we've decided to round them all up in one place here instead.

General news roundup: Persona 4 Arena Ultimax release date, Capcom XBL sale, Under Night In-Birth, Tekken, Arcana Hearts 3

It's been a while since we've done one of these news roundup posts. About time, huh?

In an effort to bring you the latest news on fighting games whose names do not start with "Street" and end with "Fighter Four", we've decided to finally do another general news roundup after such a long time.

Games covered in today's roundup news bulletin: Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late, Arcana Heart 3 Max Love, Tekken Revolution, and even some Capcom fighters.

Margaret joins the cast of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Famitsu magazine has revealed Margaret as a playable option in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. The new fighter, known for being one of the members of the Velvet Room in the RPG, will be added as DLC.

At this time, no screenshots or discussion of her play style have been revealed. However, she will use Cu Chlainn, Ardha, and Yoshitsune as her Personas.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax launches this Fall in North America for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Rumour: Margaret may be a DLC character in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Did Atlus accidentally leak the identity of a third planned DLC character for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, after Adachi and Marie?

Now that we're just a couple of weeks away from the Japanese release of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax for the PS3 and X360, Arc System Works is holding a series of game trial events across several prefectures in Japan for gamers to go hands-on with the console-exclusive characters, beginning with Tokyo's Shinjuku district this weekend.

Attendees to these Persona 4 Arena Ultimax trial events get to walk away with a complimentary A4-size plastic folder (called a "clear file" in Japan) with the game's cover art emblazoned on one side.

And according to one eagle-eyed NeoGAF user, it seems like the cover art featured on this piece of swag (images 1 to 3 below) is slightly different than the official box art for the game (4th image below).

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma's (arcade) Autumn update will introduce balance changes; 1st screenshots of Celica, Lambda-11, and Marie from P4AU

Now that the new issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine has officially gone on sale at newsstands in Japan today, Famitsu.com has finally published the first screenshots of Celica A. Mercury and Lambda-11 in BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, as well as Marie who will be a post-launch DLC character for the console versions of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.

We've already covered most of the information mentioned in the text of these Famitsu.com articles -- but there were a few additional interesting tidbits not covered in the early reports.

For starters, it was mentioned in Famitsu.com's BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma article that the Autumn "version up" update for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma (arcade) will "not only introduce balance changes, but also two new characters". Although most of us expected the new update to contain balance changes, it's always good to hear confirmation on that.

Marie from Persona 4 Golden is a post-launch DLC character for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Marie, the new major character introduced in Persona 4 Golden (PS Vita), will be making her way into the PS3 and X360 versions of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax as a post-launch DLC, the latest issue of Famitsu Weekly magazine is revealing on Thursday.

In combat, Marie will fight with her persona, Kaguya, as well as various items that she can pull out from her bag. She's said to excel at ranged attacks as well as feints in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.

Images of Marie in P4AU should come later this week, once Famitsu magazine is out on newsstands. In the meantime, you can find out more about Marie's personality (and why she's nicknamed the "Hollow Forest Tsundere Poet") in the recently-aired first episode of Persona 4 Golden the Animation, embedded below.
