Watch Ryu make funny faces as he tells you why he's going to Shadowloo Showdown V; epic trailer ft. Kyle Herbert (voice of Ryu)

Shadowloo Showdown V is taking place from August 29 to 31 at the CQ Hotel in Melbourne, Australia.

And to tell you why you should consider making a trip there (or at least, reserve the weekend for watching the stream at home), tournament organiser Shadowlogic has brought out some very big guns.

They've recruited to their cause someone that even the almighty M. Bison could never bring over to his side.

I'm referring to, Mr. Street Fighter himself. The man. The legend. The protagonist. Ryu.

Check out the trailer for Shadowloo Showdown V, where Ryu makes funny faces (kudos to Michael Shiao Chen for the animation work) as he tells you, with his soul channeled through the vocal chords of Kyle Herbert (the real voice of Ryu), why he'll be at Shadowloo Showdown V.

Tokido adapts to Xian in the grand finals for King of Fighters 13 at SEAM 2014; BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Top 8s videos

At SEAM 2014, Ultra Street Fighter 4 wasn't the only game that former teammates (back when Xian was sponsored by Mad Catz) and long-time fierce rivals RZR|Xian and MCZ|Tokido squared off in.

They also faced each other in the grand finals for The King of Fighters XIII.

This isn't the first time RZR|Xian and MCZ|Tokido has played against each other in KOF13, of course. They were in this very position, fighting for the champion's spot, in the KOF13 grand finals at Shadowloo Showdown 2013, where RZR|Xian ultimately won.

This time around, Tokido has returned with a slightly different team line-up, replacing Kim Kaphwan with Chin Gentsai, possibly as a means to better adapt to Xian's tactics.

But will the character switch pay off?

Find out in the archived match footage from SEAM 2014, provided by the Toughcookietv YouTube channel.

They've also got play-offs match footage for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma and Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

The statue is set for a November release in Japan and will hit North America as an import in December. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Nina comes with a 7,776 yen price tag (roughly $76 USD).
