Super Smash Bros. Ultimate definitely needs an option to reject matches with users playing on Wi-Fi

The Tekken 7 Season 4 update recently launched with a nifty feature that allows online players to tell whether an opponent is using a wired connection or Wi-Fi. As such, most players using a wired connection will likely reject matches that feature the Wi-Fi indicator.

It's been reported that the Tekken 7 online experience is significantly better because of this as well as other improvements. Wouldn't it be nice if Super Smash Bros. Ultimate allowed users to see and reject Wi-Fi users?

SNK's silence on King of Fighters 15 may be a sign that development has shifted to next generation consoles

Although 2020 has been a year with more than its fair share of challenges for all of us, one area which has been seeing consistent content releases and updates is fighting games. While we haven't been able to have offline events as we'd like to, the games have been bustling with new content, balance patches and entirely new releases as well, so the genre has definitely been popping even during quarantine times.

One game which people have been looking forward to for a very long time, though, and everyone seemed to be feeling very sure would release sometime this year is the newest installment in SNK's massive fighting game flagship, King of Fighters, namely King of Fighters 15. Now the year is almost over, and not only is the game not out, but we haven't even seen a glimpse of it beyond its logo (and even that may be subject to change). So what's going on with King of Fighters 15, anyway? Well, nobody who doesn't work at SNK themselves can really say for sure, but let's look at past SNK projects as well as the little informatipn drip we have had for the upcoming fighter to try and discern what the situation is.

Rashid dishing out over 500 damage in 3 seconds shows just how bonkers his V-Trigger 1 juggle combos are in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition

Rashid continues to be perhaps the most polarizing character in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition with some players loving his creative combo and tech options while many others loathe him for how safe, versatile and powerful those abilities are. This'll probably add fuel to the fire of both camps.

Resident tech master and route finder Javits Arias recently set out to discover and showcase Rashid's most damaging / wildest V-Trigger 1 combo which may have now been perfected to shave off over 600 health while performing juggles we didn't know were possible with the tornado in the game.

Where do the Mortal Kombat 11: Ultimate tier lists sit two weeks after the launch of Mileena, Rain and Rambo along with Kustom Variations?

Mortal Kombat 11 entered a new age two weeks ago with the launch of the Ultimate update which brought with it the ability to create Kustom Variations for competitive play that opened the door to so many new possibilities for fighters.

Of course, Kombat Pack 2 dropped at the same time containing Mileena, Rain and John Rambo, so now is a great time to see how the new characters are performing in the tier lists next to their unleashed brethren.

Sharing your best Super Smash Bros. Ultimate media is now way easier in the new Switch update but there's a weird hoop to jump through first to do it

Most of us probably have quite a few highlights and screenshots from our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate just sitting on our Nintendo Switch doing nothing, but now it's easier than ever to share them with the world or keep them in a personal collection.

Nintendo has released the largest firmware update for the Switch in quite some time with version 11.0.0 which brings with it a bunch of new quality of life changes including two new fairly simple ways to move videos and images off of the console — though one is a bit stranger than the other.

Bandai Namco have released the Version 2.30 update for SC6 which comes packing some lengthy patch notes with a ton of balance changes and new content.

Epic Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Shuma-Gorath beatdown proves that Angelic still has the scariest Lord of Chaos in the business

Armando "Angelic" Mejia, one of the best Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 competitors around and easily the meanest Shuma-Gorath player we've ever seen, recently pulled off an incredible single character sequence with the character he's best known for.

While streaming on Sunday the Arizona player found himself with two dead teammates, a nearly dead Shuma, no remaining X-Factor, and an X-Factor boosted Vergil as an opponent. Those who've played a round or two of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 know just how dire such a situation is, which makes what happened next all the more impressive.

When will Capcom announce Street Fighter 6?

It is becoming quite apparent that Street Fighter 6 is a good ways into development, but Capcom has yet to actually announce or talk about the project as Street Fighter 5 approaches its fifth birthday.

Considering we don't have an official reveal yet, it's impossible to hammer down and know what Street Fighter 6 will be this early on. That said, there are plenty of tea leaves to read that can zone us in on when and where to look forward to thanks to Capcom's fairly strict ways they show off big titles for the first time.

Japan's top 2 Dragon Ball FighterZ players finally clashed in the National Championships but their gap in power level is pretty absurd

After losing in EVO grand finals to EG|SonicFox, CO|Go1 made it his goal to be the best Dragon Ball FighterZ player in the world which he cemented by winning EVO 2019 and the DBFZ World Tour Finals earlier this year, but he still has some stiff competition in his home territory.

This past week gave us the final group play round of the Dragon Ball FighterZ National Championship which brought with it the exciting prospect of making both of Japan's 6-0 players go head-to-head for Go1 vs. CO|Fenrich — and the results were certainly eye-opening.

Tweek releases his latest tier list for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Gavin "TSM|Tweek" Dempsey is one of the best Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players around and so we were particularly excited to see that he's dropped an updated tier list ordering the game's 80+ combatants.

The Wario and Wolf main breaks the roster down into four categories, and engages in the somewhat seldom-seen practice of admitting that the characters he uses are among the best in the game.

Snake Eyez uses his grappler player wisdom to score a full-screen Critical Art punish on Dhalsim's leg in this Street Fighter 5 clip

Here in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition, we see a lot of Snake Eyez's Kage both in ranked sets and in tournament. Fans certainly know this top contender for his Zangief play, however, with years of experience being one of the best to ever command the Russian wrestler across several Street Fighter titles.

In a recent clip from one of Snake Eyez's live streams, shared by none other than HiFight, the avid Kage landed an absolutely gnarly Critical Art punish against a Dhalsim player. Despite the speed and max range of Sim's standing kick here, Snake Eyez's extensive training against zoners definitely came into play as he still managed to get the super to connect from nearly full-screen away.

Update: Hwang will be Soul Calibur 6's final DLC character

Updated: Bandai Namco has edited their blog post to specify that Hwang is the final character of Season Pass 2. The original text stated that he was the final DLC character joining the game, leading many to believe there would be no further DLC characters.

Earlier: During the Soul Calibur Online Challenge EU West finals this past weekend, Bandai Namco unveiled the next fighter to join Soul Calibur 6. Hwang makes his grand return after 15 years of dormancy as the next Soul Calibur 6 DLC character and conclusion to Season Pass 2.

New Japanese commercial uses Minecraft's Steve to advertise Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Steve, Alex, Enderman and Zombie from Minecraft were made into playable characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate last month. Being that Minecraft is the best-selling video game in the world, it'd certainly make sense for Nintendo to advertise their inclusion.

This is probably why Nintendo recently released a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate commercial that really highlighted how Steve is in the game. Of course, it's worth noting that the commercial is in Japanese.
