Yesterday, Warner Bros. dropped the big news that Mortal Kombat 11 had impressively reached 12 million copies sold worldwide after not talking about numbers for the fighting game for almost a year.

Masahiro Sakurai coming to Harada's Bar? Tekken Director inquires what fans would ask the Smash Bros. Director given the chance

Bandai Namco has been working alongside Masahiro Sakurai and Nintendo to develop Super Smash Bros. for nearly 10 years since development began on the 3DS and Wii U entries in the series. After DLC wrapped up for Super Smash Bros. 4, Bandai Namco would return to work after a brief break to assist in the development of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Needless to say, the addition of Tekken representation, a series that closely involves Katsuhiro Harada, to the roster made a ton of sense when it was first revealed that Kazuya Mishima would become playable.

Mysteriously, Katsuhiro Harada recently went to Twitter to ask fans what questions they would ask Masahiro Sakurai if given the chance. Based on how the question is worded, it seems like there is a particular reason why Harada is asking this.

Little Z makes legitimate excuses when he loses during this bizarre Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Elite Smash session

In a recent video upload, Little Z attempts to score some GSP during a session of Elite Smash on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Although Little Z promises that there will be "no Johns" (no excuses) in the video, we can clearly hear him complaining about something during each of his matches.

It doesn't even take one match for Little Z to comment about something as he's losing. While it might just seem like Little Z is "Johning," there's actually something else going on here that doesn't get revealed until after he loses.

Gas Blast, unblockable bombs and ice balls — What are the best projectiles in NetherRealm Studios' history?

Throughout all of NetherRealm Studios' fighting games (Mortal Kombat 9, Injustice, Mortal Kombat X, Injustice 2 and Mortal Kombat 11), there's always been at least some emphasis on zoning. Even in rushdown oriented NetherRealm Studios games, there tends to be at least one or two very strong zoning characters that have an impact on the meta.

What are the best projectile moves in NetherRealm Studios history? TrueUnderDawgGaming recently released a video on this very subject.

Punk pops off after defeating iDom in major Street Fighter 5 tournament and gets so hype his mom joins in

The Capcom Pro Tour 2021 North America East Street Fighter 5 tournament concluded just yesterday. Though there were only a little over 100 players competing for one of those elusive Capcom Cup 2021 qualifier slots, there were some big names competing at this event, which included the likes of iDom, PG|Punk, Rise|Smug, END|Shine, DR Mandrake, BC|Arturo Sanchez, UYU|Kami, MetroM, THG|Ludovic and many more.

Eventually, iDom and Punk, two of the top seeded players of the entire event, ran into one another in grand finals. Despite Punk's success throughout the history of competitive Street Fighter 5, iDom had become quite the obstacle for Punk in recent times. Based on the results of their previous recent encounters in bracket, iDom was probably the expected winner in most spectators' minds.

Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix allowed for impossible walk-forward charge moves and here's what Desk can do with that

The Street Fighter 2 series brought with it some real strange glitches and oddities spanning across the many different versions of the game. Hell, even combos as a whole started out as unintentional behavior that ultimately ended up becoming a cornerstone of fighting games.

Strangely enough, though, one of the weirder things to rear its head in the series came from Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix — a 2008 remake of the classic fighter. Apparently, it was possible to walk forward and still charge for charge special moves, and combo creator Desk has put together a new video showing the type of antics this oddity could lead to.

Japanese Guilty Gear god showcases nutty Faust combo while avoiding his own bomb with surgical precision

Faust is often regarded by many to be the 'weakest' character in Guilty Gear Strive right now, and the fact that a good number of his items can harm him too certainly don't help his case.

Cetrion's comeback with a Fatal Blow hilariously stopped short thanks to acid on the ground in Mortal Kombat 11 clip

It pays to be mindful where you're standing in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate matches. This is especially true when facing off against Erron Black when he's throwing acid vials on the ground.

Needless to say, something funny happened in a clip that featured Panda AnT1605's Cetrion facing off against AnarchyPR1952's Erron Black. Panda AnT1605's Cetrion only had a sliver of life remaining, but a single combo would be all it would take for Cetrion to make a comeback.
