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.

Ryan Hart: 'Juri is going to be an issue in Ultra', EventHubs exclusive interview covers Ultra, preferred fighting game, tournament mindset and more

In the beginning of March, the thrilling IVGC tournament was taking place in Cannes, France. EventHubs' very own writer MajinTenshinhan was present at the scene, and made sure to grab six different interviews, five of which have been published regularly since.

Today, we publish our sixth and final interview, with the Europe's seasoned expert in multiple different titles, Ryan Hart. Below, you'll find a quick snippet of the interview.

MajinTenshinhan: In the Street Fighter 4 series, you've been known for the last few years for your very strong Sagat play, but it's also no secret that you're quite capable with several other characters as well. Once Ultra Street Fighter 4 hits, do you think that you'll be switching characters a lot in tournaments, or do you think you'll be sticking to mostly Sagat?

Ryan Hart: Originally I thought Id be using many characters again but after trying the game today I think I will try to have one main with perhaps one sub character. When I tested Ultra I found that I couldn't time the jump in on their delayed wakeup reliably, this meant that I kept eating anti airs or wakeups for free.

With EVO coming up its important to focus on match stability for short tournament sets. This may change once I've had more time with the game, but at the moment I'm not really seeing what I'm supposed to be trying to do when they use the delayed wakeup option, nor how that is going to be a reliable path of play since I'm also risking my advantage by guessing their wakeup method and then their wakeup attack or defence on top of that.

Of course this may change over time, it's just how I currently feel. May as well just forget all that, get some space and do a fireball when they get up, if it hits meaty its all good, and if it doesn't then at least you are safe.

Hit the jump to read the rest of the interview, which covers Ryan's favourite fighting game, potentially strong characters in Ultra, plans for EVO and more.
