Street Fighter 5 to be playable at Red Fight District IV next month, will we see a new build with the next character?

Red Fight District IV is taking place in Amsterdam on October 3rd - 4th, and the tournament is shaping up to be a doozie.

Tournaments for Ultra Street Fighter 4, Mortal Kombat X, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Killer Instinct, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- are scheduled, and players such as MD|Luffy, LLL|MBR, and Gonzales from Japan are expected to compete. This Capcom Pro Tour Ranking event will surely be a spectacle to behold, but there's an added incentive for those who attend.

Street Fighter 5 will be featured at Red Fight District IV and playable for attendees. By now, there's a fairly good chance we'll be seeing another character reveal tomorrow, based on Ono's hints. This could very well mean that a newer build of SF5 might be playable at the event, especially with the tournament taking place nearly a month after tomorrow's reveal.

If so, we can expect to see plenty of gameplay footage featuring the next fighter in action. And at the very least, the PAX R. Mika build will be featured, which means more footage of everyone's favorite luchador.

You can check out the trailer for Red Fighter District IV after the jump.

NESiCAxLive now in the United States at Round 1 in California, more locations potentially receiving it

Though it's been quite a long time since we talked about NESiCAxLive, an arcade board that allows the legitimate downloading of countless games and updates onto a single unit digitally, we can finally report that a unit has come to the United States.

The first unit is at Round 1, an arcade in Los Angeles, California (Puente Hills). This could have an enormous impact on the arcade scene in the United States, mixing cost effective convenience for business owners with a huge library of titles for players.

In the announcement tweet by Round 1, they ask that people come by and show interest, with NESiCAxLive units only being able to grow in distribution if they're amply supported by the community. Here's the tweet in question:


If this is something you are interested in, tweet our to Round 1 and let them know, or go to the venue yourself and support it! Perhaps we'll be seeing a lot more of NESiCAxLive in the US soon.

Fight Thoughts - Round 1: Why EVO 2015 was the best EVO ever - new column from EventHubs' tournament specialist MajinTenshinhan

Welcome to a new column feature here on EventHubs, written by me, Nicholas "MajinTenshinhan" Taylor, our site's very own tournament coverage specialist.

I've been working at the site for almost two and a half years now, and during that time I've been watching more tournaments than I even know existed. When Catalyst first approached me to write a column about tournaments and what's going on in the current fighting game world and meta, I was hesitant. But after seeing all the action and hype at this year's EVO, I thought it was time for me to jump on the opportunity and give some opinions about what we've been seeing lately.

In this first column, I will be covering all nine of the main stage games, noting things that surprised me, that impressed me and overall what made it so special to see this year. I will also pick out a "MVP" of sorts for each game, as to which player ended up being most memorable for me besides the champion.

Continue right below, and let's see what each game had to offer.

Need a refresher on the state of Tekken x Street Fighter? Look no further with AwpWilliams' state of affairs breakdown

Though we're looking forward to both Tekken 7 and Tekken x Street Fighter, it can easily be said that we don't particularly know much about either title. Especially in the case of Tekken x Street Fighter, it has remained enigmatic for the past five years.

For anyone who's lost track, or jumped off the train for keeping track of these titles, AwpWilliams has you covered with this in depth breakdown video, reviewing what we know about each title, and offering opinions on the state of things.

Most of the video is devoted to Tekken x Street Fighter, but there is a bit about the potential console version of Tekken 7, and the relation between the two games.

Awp Williams counts down the five best characters in the Tekken franchise

Tekken enthusiast Awp Williams is back with his personal picks for the top five characters in Tekken.

With ten games spanning the course of the last 21 years, Tekken has had some time to develop quite an evolutionary arc for its characters. Jin, Yoshimitsu, Eddie Gordo, Law, Xiaoyu, Heihachi, the list of memorable Tekken figures runs quite deep.

Awp specifically notes that this is not a tier list, but rather his personal personal picks as the most memorable in the series. Having said that, we're fully prepared for your respectful disagreements... and outraged rants. Feel free to let us know your top picks as well.
