Shang Tsung reigns over all in the colorful poster for the Mortal Kombat film from Bosslogic who's gone from creating fan art to official designs

Mortal Kombat's new film is now less than two weeks away from its official release, and there's a cool visual piece to feast our eyes on to make the wait less of a brutality to endure.

Dan is the second-least picked DLC character in Street Fighter 5's history but don't worry he's also currently losing the most too

Now that Season 5 has been available for almost two months in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition, we can get a better sense as to how the update has impacted the game, and there's some new hard data to look at as well.

Capcom released the March character usage and combat statistics for SF5 as the first full month of Season 5, which revealed that the Dan army has certainly not taken the game by storm — and he couldn't be much further from that.

Super Fighter M - All Star is the most shameless ripoff of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and it's no wonder it's been taken down

A very bizarre game was recently playable on the Google Play Store until it was taken down on March 8, 2021, presumably by Nintendo. "Super Fighter M - All Star," the game in question, shamelessly ripped assets from games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Super Mario Odyssey and Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Though the crossover nature of the game reminds of the Super Smash Bros. series, the game actually appeared to play like a top-down multiplayer hack n' slash with RPG elements — something similar to Marvel Ultimate Alliance, but way worse.

This game was apparently released by some unknown Chinese developer back in 2019. It's become popular in recent times due to a translated to English re-release by Cayman Game Inc. Hilariously, this was the only known release by Cayman Game Inc. before it was taken down. Super Fighter M - All Star even featured voice acting and cutscenes, though the game's quality was still extremely questionable.

NVD|Phenom was recently seen using Ryu against a Master ranked Ibuki player. In the uploaded clip, both players were basically evenly matched. Eventually, the Ibuki player went for a bold play that caught Phenom off guard.

Hungrybox releases Jigglypuff match up chart for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version 11.0.1

Liquid|Hungrybox recently released a tier list for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. On that tier list, Hungrybox's main character, Jigglypuff, was listed as a bottom 12 character.

Jigglypuff's status as a low tier character would obviously imply that the Pokémon rep has a lot of difficult match ups at high level play. Needless to say, this was reflected in Hungrybox's newly released match up chart for Jigglypuff in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version 11.0.1.

Rose's offensive tarot cards from her V-Skill 1 apply debuffs on guard but they aren't unblockables in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition

Quite a lot of information was revealed about Rose during Capcom's Spring Update stream for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition. With V-Skill 1 equipped, Rose has access to four different tarot cards that come with varying effects.

Though Rose's V-Skill 1 appears to be kind of random, two out of four of her tarot cards can be thrown as an offensive projectile. Should the tarot card connect with the opponent, then it will apply a debuff. What's interesting is that the effects of the card are applied even if the projectile is blocked.
