Ibuki Street Fighter 5 trailer released

Ibuki's official Street Fighter 5 trailer was just announced at Combo Breaker.

The Third Strike character is back with many of her traditional moves, but with one obvious addition: she now has bombs that she can toss out onto the stage.

No doubt we'll be seeing some trap set ups from Ibuki this time around, as it appears these bombs have a delayed fuse on them. This iteration of Ibuki looks to be very different than any we've seen thus far.

We also see the Kanzuki Estate stage in the daytime in the trailer, which may mean a new fighting locale for us to battle in. We didn't catch a release date, but Ibuki should be playable before the end of May.

Here are some images from the trailer:

Disney now 'looking at the video games business exclusively as licensing opportunity' after discontinuing Infinity

A recent article by James Brightman of Gameindustry informs us that Disney Infinity, Disney's action-adventure sandbox video game, is being discontinued.

The company is no longer a game publisher, but will still be licensing out its properties for others to create games with.

"Disney said that it's now looking at the video games business exclusively as a licensing opportunity, so games based on properties it owns, like Star Wars, are of course still receiving games (such as those from EA), but Disney itself no longer has any interest in publishing them," reports Brightman.

With Disney's acquisition of Marvel rights back in 2009, followed by their announcing they'd be tightening up on licensing policies, many felt this would be the end for the MvC franchise. Indeed many Marvel games were removed from marketplaces in early 2014.

While we're not quite holding our breath just yet, this could extend over to Marvel, and that could mean an eventual revitalization of the Marvel vs. Capcom series.

What do you think this move could mean for the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise? Sound off in the comments below.

Street Fighter 5 Guile trailer released

The official trailer for Street Fighter 5's Guile has been released.

In it, we get to see what the game's second DLC character can do. Being a classic and returning world warrior, Guile retains his trademark Sonic Boom and Flash Kick special moves this time around.

Not only does the trailer show those two attacks in action, but we also get to see some of Guile's new tricks at play, including his stationary projectile V-Skill and his crouch walk that allows him to keep his charge while moving forward.

Guile joins Street Fighter 5 later this month, classic Air Force Base stage also on its way

The next Street Fighter 5 DLC character has officially been announced. As you may have guessed by now, Guile will be joining the roster later this month.

This returning fighter will be available for free to everyone until the game's Zenny feature is implemented. Guile will come along with his own trials and story mode, and his battle costume which will be free for season pass holders.

Additionally, his classic Air Force Base stage has been revealed as the first DLC backdrop. Season pass holders will receive it for free, and everyone else will have to pay 70,000 FM in the in-game shop if they'd like to acquire it.

Check out some screenshots of Guile below.

Mai returns to King of Fighters 14 alongside newcomer ninja/Mai fanboy Banderas

The latest King of Fighters 14 trailer is out, and it shows Mai Shiranui, mainstay of the King of Fighters series, being confronted by ... a huge fan.

Presumably a member of the new South American team, Banderas clearly has some boundary issues when it comes to his idols, as you can see in the first trailer that's actually narrated by the two characters themselves.

I guess Mai isn't used to being on the other end of stalking, huh?

Mui Mui and Kukri revealed for King of Fighters 14

Two brand new characters were revealed today in the 11th King of Fighters 14 teaser trailer, Mui Mui and Kukri.

Mui Mui is a kung fu expert, who originated from the SNK pachinko slot machine, Dragon Gal. She's the last successor of the dragon clan of martial artists, and loves to eat and battle new opponents.

She can also briefly transform into an adult version of herself in the pachinko games she's appeared in, due to her dragon blood.

SNK Playmore didn't offer as many details about Kukri though, simply saying that he's a "mysterious combatant enshrouded in mystery," and from the trailer we can see he has many sand based attacks.

Updated: Alex's official Street Fighter 5 trailer released

Updated: Alex and the Street Fighter 5 in-game store are now live.

Earlier: Street Fighter 5's first DLC character is being released today, and now we have an official trailer to go with him.

Alex joins the fray today, along with Street Fighter 5's in-game store.

New fighters and costumes can be purchased from the in-game store: characters for 100,000 Fight Money each and new costumes for 40,000 Fight Money each. Guile, Ibuki, Balrog, Juri, and Urien will all be joining the playable roster throughout the year as DLC, and each will have their own alternate story mode costume that can be purchased in the shop.

Season pass holders will be given immediate access to Alex and future characters when they are released. Since the Zenny feature -- using real money to purchase content from the in-game store -- isn't ready just yet, Capcom is offering Alex and any other character that are released before the feature is ready for free as a trial period.

Once Zenny is officially live, however, players will have to purchase each of the characters if they want to continue using them.

Finally, as a way to say thanks for the patience and understanding shown by the community throughout the beta phases and launch, Capcom is giving all user Ryu and Chun-Li's story mode costumes free of charge.
