CyberConnect 2 would love to see Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution at EVO, game developed with input from SF, KoF and Tekken producers

It's fairly uncommon to hear Japanese companies talk about the competitive scene of their fighting games, particularly when said games are based on an existing IP.

CyberConnect2, however, are very much aware of the Evolution World Championship series, and have gone on record in an interview with Siliconera saying that they'd very much like for their latest entry in the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm video game series to be represented at the event in the future.

Below, you'll find the excerpt where CyberConnect2's CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama mentions their desire to have the game present at EVO.

We’d really love to see Ninja Storm at events like EVO, like with Tekken, so, we built it with that in mind. Also, this game is going to be sold in September 2014—and we’re hoping to sell around 1.5 million copies worldwide.

Maximilian's 'Super Arts!' episode 2 goes over the art and design reasons behind Tekken 3's success, compares Jin to Street Fighter's Ryu

Maximilian is back with another episode of Super Arts, his bi-weekly look at the art and design behind classic fighting games.

The new episode puts the spotlight on Tekken 3 -- a game that Maximilian points out not only outsold Street Fighter 2 on Super Nintendo, but is overall the second most successful fighting game, after Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

In it, Max runs through the design reasons that contributed to the success of the game, including ditching Kazuya as the series's main poster boy for then-newcomer Jin Kazama -- whom Max feels parallels Street Fighter's Ryu in many ways, and is one of the greatest main character designs ever in a fighting game.

He also goes over Yoshimitsu's character design in this iteration, and the commercials that ran for the game.

Hit the jump to watch episode 2 of Maximilian's Super Arts! series: "The Tekken 3 Phenomenon (Art/Design Retrospective)".

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 officially added to EVO 2014 lineup, Namco Bandai to sponsor the event

During tonight's episode of IPlayWinner's The Fray!, EVO tournament series co-founder Joey “Mr. Wizard” Cuellar stopped by to make an announcement about this year's event.

When the official EVO 2014 lineup was first revealed, many Tekken fans, (including Mad Catz' own Mark "MarkMan" Julio), were fairly disappointed to see that the 3D fighter would not be making an appearance as a main game. However, after tonight's announcement, it has been confirmed that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will indeed be featured as a main game, joining the likes of Ultra Street Fighter 4, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Killer Instinct, and more.

Additionally, Namco Bandai Games, the company which develops the Tekken franchise, is stepping in as a primary sponsor for EVO 2014. The decision to get Tekken back to EVO, and get Namco themselves as a sponsor was heavily due to the efforts of MarkMan, Bronson Tran, and the Tekken community.
