Early entrance numbers for SoCal Regionals 2014 by game - SSF4 AE v2012, UMvC3, Smash, BlazBlue and more

We checked with Level|Up to find out what the early registration numbers are for the SoCal Regionals 2014, by game. With 20 titles in the lineup, we thought it'd be interesting to see which games have attracted the most players so far.

Also, an influx of users is expected to flood in a week before registration ends, on February 23, so it's highly advised that you sign up now, or risk not being able to compete in the games you wish to play — as registration is capped.

The caps for SSF4 AE v2012, UMvC3 and SSBM are 256 players. KoF13, BBCP and soon Injustice will be capped at 128, so if you're interested in signing up for any of these games, you should hit the SoCal Regionals website before the brackets fill up.

Watch the Mozart of fighting games in action - this guy plays Tekken with a piano as his controller

If you've ever considered what fits you best, a stick or a pad, you might have been too limited in your choices. User Mc Cool on Vimeo demonstrates that he uses neither - and instead opts to battle using a piano.

Harada says revealing Tekken frame data is possible, but he wouldn't do it; feels doing so will impact the game's lifespan

Many modern day fighting titles have attack frame data floating around the internet, and some even have it openly available in-game. One company that has generally avoided revealing frame data to the masses is Namco Bandai.

Recently, a Twitter user asked Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada why it is that Tekken frame data is not displayed for players to study. Harada posted an extensive reply that discusses their decision to hold this information back, and gives a few examples to further explain.

"It is of course possible to display the frame data within the game but I wouldn't do it," Harada says. "Including the entire frame data (the time and range of an attack's data) into the game, there are things to consider when you give the player access to this data."

A new Tekken film is in the works - a prequel from the mind of the Ong-Bak director

The last time we witnessed a live-action Tekken film hit the big screen was back in 2010. According to Japanese film website, Cinema Today, another Tekken movie is currently in the works.

Not much has been divulged on this new project, but what we do know is that it will actually be a prequel to the last film. The official title is, "Tekken: A Man Called X," and is being directed by Prachya Pinkaew, who also worked on such films as Ong-Bak and The Protector.

Additionally, the star of the flick is set to be Kane Kosugi, who also played Ryu Hyabusa in the live-action Dead or Alive feature.

Hopefully this film fairs a bit better than its predecessor, and retains some of the crazy martial arts action that the Ong-Bak movies are known for. (If a big dude throws Kuma around like that elephant in The Protector, I'm going to lose my mind... Make it happen, Pinkaew!)
