New images of Ultra Street Fighter 4's upcoming Wild costumes, a better look at the first five characters

Just in time for Halloween, Capcom has given us a closer look at some of the upcoming "Wild" Ultra Street Fighter 4 costumes. Ayano has posted his latest entry in the Saikyo Blog in which he talks Omega Mode changes and the animal costume DLC.

Upon reveal, five characters' new digs were shown: Ryu, Cammy, Dudley, Hakan, and Gen. Unfortunately, the first image wasn't of the clearest quality.

Tonight, however, you can check out each of the new designs as they were intended to be seen. The concept are below is crystal clear and each costume looks better than the last! (Especially Dudley's.)

'Don't bet on me, because you never know who's going up to that stage: fLoE or Floke' - Jayce the Ace and CJ Truth in Pro Tour's latest spotlights

Capcom continues to release their Pro Tour player spotlights in which they sit down with some of the most notable competitors in the community and talk shop.

The most recent videos were uploaded just yesterday, and feature fLoE, YBK|Jayce the Ace, and CJ Truth.

For those who are unfamiliar, fLoE is somewhat known for "choking" in a tournament setting. It has happened so many times, that whenever another occurs, many refer to it as a "Floke." In this interview, fLoE offers a bit of advice for those looking to cheer him on at the next event.

"Don't bet on me, because you never know who's going up to that stage," fLoE explained. "Sometimes you'll see moments of brilliance, moments of greatness, and then you'll see the most terrible play you've ever seen in your life."

CJ Truth shares that his greatest achievement is not only beating EG|Justin Wong, but hitting him with a Perfect, and Jayce mentions that he has only been playing competitively for 4 and a half years, yet still managed to defeat MCZ|Tokido at SCR.

Check out Capcom's latest player spotlights below.

Just how strong of a seller is Street Fighter for Capcom? Latest numbers for the series as a whole and each game for Street Fighter 4, MvC3, and more

Update: A mistake in the article that implied the total of Marvel vs Capcom 3 sales totaled 7 million has been corrected. The Marvel vs Capcom series as a whole equals this amount. Secondly, while Street Fighter Alpha 3 is the lowest selling game listed, there are Capcom titles not represented due to their selling below 1 million.

Capcom has updated the sales of both their individual game sales and series sales for almost the entirety of their catalog. Sales, of course, are an integral part of getting funding for future titles, so where a franchise stands on this list shine shines some light on hopes for sequels and re-releases.

It should come as no surprise that Resident Evil takes the highest honor at a total of 62 million units sold worldwide. Specifically, Resident Evil 5 holds the number one spot for individual game sales at 6.7 million units. The highest selling Street Fighter title, Street Fighter II, closely follows in second at 6.3 million.

But how does Street Fighter hold up in sales overall? What is the worst selling Street Fighter title listed? And where's Marvel? Read below to find out.

LeviStrauss 'Timer Scams' Daigo; NISHIKIN uses both U2 and Red Focus twice, mounts big comeback: USF4 replays feat. Pepeday, Inco, and more

We end off our news day with some spectacular Ultra Street Fighter 4 bouts.

Players participating in this assortment of matches include MCZ|Daigo, NISHIKIN, LeviStrauss, FGC|Pepeday, Inco, ProudStrawberry, and more.

In the match between Daigo (Evil Ryu) and LeviStrauss (Ken), the latter manages to brave a series of pressure strings from The Beast, winding down the clock and taking the round with a 'Timer Scam' Ultra 2. NISHIKIN (Blanka) also demonstrates some impressive play by landing two Red Focus combos on Kyunzo (Hugo), and also hits U2 twice in one match.

You can check out the animated GIFs below to see NISHIKIN style with Red Focus and mount a big comeback. If you want to avoid match spoilers, it is recommended that you skip the GIFs.

Ixion's tier ranking for Dan in Ultra Street Fighter 4, feels Rufus is his easiest match-up

Another Ultra Street Fighter 4 character tier ranking was recently sent our way, and this time Ixion -- Europe's, and arguably the world's best Dan player -- brings us his match-up list for the Saikyo master.

Unlike some of the previous tier rankings we've featured here on the site in recent times, Ixion's arranges the roster from most difficult to easiest match-ups. It's no surprise that Evil Ryu sits atop the list as the most difficult opponent for Dan, but what's interesting is that Rufus is shown as Dan's easiest opponent to defeat.

Check out Ixion's tier ranking for Dan below, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Akuma hits 7 standing heavy kicks in one combo! Desk shows the power of meaty attacks and frame delay links in USF4

Desk is back with yet another Ultra Street Fighter 4 combo video today.

The combo extraordinaire resurrects Akuma's st. LP - meaty st. HK loop from Vanilla SF4, and puts it to amazing use against E. Honda in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Using "Frame Delay Links" -- a technique that requires a player wait x amount of frames before inputting another button -- Desk has managed to land 7 of Akuma's standing heavy kicks in one combo.

Check it out below.

Ryu's ambiguous corner cross-under mix-up, Akuma whiffed Super setup that gives a guaranteed UC2, Tiger Shot loops - Ultra Street Fighter 4 CMV

CMV maker Luparez has been spending quite a bit of time training in the lab in Ultra Street Fighter 4, and he's finally ready to share his lab findings with the rest of us -- it's been two months since his last video!

In this multi-character CMV, Luparez not only performs some of the most fanciful combos possible in the game, but also demonstrates some of the mix-up and reset opportunities possible with many of the characters featured.

There's a lot to see here. My personal favorite: cancelling Akuma's fireball with his Raging Demon super, in order to force his opponent to jump for a guaranteed Ultra Combo 2.

All that and more in Luparez's "Experiments in the Lab 9" CMV below.

Luffy (Rose) vs. IronTrigr (Abel): Extremely close ft-to-5 set in which the UK player scores a Perfect on the EVO 2014 champ

Rose vs. Abel. That's match-up we don't get to see very often, especially at high levels of play as top Rose and Abel players are few and far apart, and they rarely get to play one another.

So it was a bit of a rare treat this morning when we woke up to find in our mailbox this following high-level first-to-5 set between France's MD|Luffy and one of UK's best players Hassan 'IronTrigr' Laghari, sent in to us by Balg MD.

Normally a first-to-5 set against MD|Luffy, on its own, isn't really a big enough deal for us to feature in a post (maybe in a roundup, if it's any good). Preferably, we'd like to see heavyweights on both corners of the ring.

But this set between MD|Luffy and IronTrigr isn't like most other -- it's filled with moments, and came down to the wire. IronTrigr even manages to score a Perfect round against the EVO 2014 champ. We think it's worth checking out; take a look below, and tell us what you think.

Dudley's MGB loop lasts too long on Hugo, Rose Throw KOs are amazing, and 'Dudstep' is the best music ever - this USF4 CMV packs a real punch

A new Ultra Street Fighter 4 combo video was sent our way earlier today, and this one sure is a doozy.

Tonight's CMV features the classiest pugilist in all of Street Fighter -- that's right, Balrog, get on his level! Dudley is the man of the hour, and this particular compilation of clips will have you thinking his previous occupation was "circus performer"...because of the juggles. Nevermind...

In this combo video, you'll be witness to a number of amazing juggle combos, a combo using the Machine Gun Blow loop on Hugo that goes on for much too long, and a Rose Throw KO that ends with the creation of an entirely new style of music -- 'Dudstep'. Believe me, it's exactly what it sounds like.

This montage is both impressive and creative in many ways, and it's not easy to impress this writer with Dudley combos as I've seen a fair share in my day. You'll find this classy combo compilation below.

Daigo may have lost to a Dhalsim at EVO, but he still thinks the character is weak - EventHubs's post-CPT Asia interview with The Beast

EventHubs caught up with MCZ|Daigo for a brief interview after he clinched a victory over RZR|Xian in the grand finals of the Capcom Pro Tour Asia tournament, earning himself a spot in the Capcom Cup 2014 finals later this year in December.

In our interview with The Beast, we asked MCZ|Daigo on his afterthoughts on Capcom Pro Tour Asia, whether or not he agrees with BE|Nemo's assessment of Ryu and Gen being bottom-tier, as well as a couple of questions submitted in to us by you readers (EventHubbers?).

KarbyP: Firstly, congratulations on winning Capcom Pro Tour Asia and qualifying for Capcom Cup 2014. How are you feeling right now?

MCZ|Daigo: I'm feeling very relieved right now. Now that I've managed to make it through to the Capcom Cup finals. Initially I didn't have any plans on attending the Capcom Cup finals, but mid-way through the Capcom Pro Tour -- about two months ago, shortly before the Taiwan qualifier -- I decided to give it a shot.

Since then I've been quite worried about whether or not I'd be able to qualify, so right now I'm really glad that I managed to.

Justin Wong in the grand finals for USF4, UMvC3 & KI at Chile's GamerByte tournament; will he achieve a grand slam? Find out in these videos

EG|Justin Wong was invited as a special guest to the GamerByte tournament in Chile this past weekend.

The Evil Geniuses sponsored player entered in multiple games, and made it into the grand finals of three titles: Ultra Street Fighter 4, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Killer Instinct.

It may not be much of a surprise to see a player as talented as Justin make it to the grand finals in these three games at a Chile tournament. Nevertheless, his ascension to the grand finals did not go unchallenged: Justin was actually on the losers' side of the brackets for UMvC3 and KI.

Will EG|Justin Wong be able to reset the brackets for UMvC3 and KI, and ultimately achieve a grand slam in winning at all three titles? Find out in these official YouTube video archives provided by VersusCL.

Tokido's Akuma red fireball negative edge setup; a video response to Xian's Academy and Ultra Street Fighter 4 tutorial

On an episode of Xian's Academy earlier this year, the Singapore champion had been demonstrating how to perform one of Tokido's signature Akuma corner setups -- air fireball into (negative edge) red fireball block string -- when he admitted that he didn't quite understand the rationale behind using negative edge to perform the red fireball follow-up.

In order to perform the red fireball with negative edge, you'd have to hold down the HP button shortly after throwing out an air fireball, then input semi-circle backwards and release the HP button when Akuma's on the ground.

This seems like a bit of a hassle and both Xian and his co-host on that episode, Leslie, did not understand why you couldn't just perform the red fireball regularly. So the Singapore champ threw the mystery out to his viewers:

"I hope someone who understands this stuff could tell me about it, since I literally have no idea," Xian requested on the episode.

And somebody who goes by "Jay Rego" on YouTube responded.
