Street Fighter 5's crossover costumes and Extra Battle bosses are really looking like test beds for potential future Capcom projects

Street Fighter 5 in its first two years felt like a fairly self-contained project outside of some nostalgia costumes and references to other SF characters though the release of Arcade Edition shook things up greatly to the point where it very well could mean something more.

The release of Arcade Edition in 2018 opened the game up to a plethora of new content including two key additions that may point to Capcom's interest in testing out ideas for future games with the crossover costumes and Extra Battle time exclusive boss fights.

Noctis can pull off a powerful touch of death combo in Tekken 7 dishing out 9,999 damage... sort of

Final Fantasy 15's Noctis is one of the most unique characters currently in Tekken 7's roster considering he's one of the rare fighters to primarily use weapons in this hand-to-hand martial arts game which allows him to do things no one else can.

Tekken player Dengojin recently shared a special touch of death combo for Noctis in the game that displays 9,999 damage despite characters having a lot less actual health than that.

Seeing Morrigan throw 42 Soul Fists in 16 seconds in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is a spectacular watch... unless you're the one she's aiming for

I recall seeing Soul Fist used at its maximum efficiency on the EVO main stage by ChrisG one year as he literally filled the screen with the relatively slow moving and deadly projectiles. I remember thinking three distinct thoughts while watching the match's video and audio quickly become little more than anything but Soul Fist centered: That's hilariously ridiculous to have in a game, it's entertaining as all hell to watch, and I'm really glad I'm not the one having to try to deal with it.

As many brave MvC warriors as have been felled by this particularly powerful attack in previous Marvel titles, Capcom knew fans of the character wouldn't have it any other way and thus brought it back in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. A Japanese player by the name of Tekitounitanomu reminds of how insane this move could make things when used the right way.

Should Capcom use a Street Fighter 4 original character as Street Fighter 5's final DLC addition?

Of the 11 characters that made their playable debut in Street Fighter 4, only three are currently available to play in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition.

Seth, Juri, and Poison have all been great additions to the fifth Street Fighter's roster, but the game is getting one more DLC fighter toward the end of next year, and we'd like to take a moment to imagine how good of a fit the eight other Street Fighter 4 newcomers might make for it.

Mame_708's Street Fighter 5 fan art looks like the awesome children's book I never knew I wanted to read

Today we have one of the most unique artists we've seen featured here on the front page. Illustrator mame_708 mainly focuses on Street Fighter 5 fan art, but brings a totally fresh flavor to the game's characters that just seems to work despite it deviating far from the source.

In this batch of art pieces, we see a lot of Sakura, Zangief, Abigail, and Birdie, and each is getting into their own crazy adventures. A lot of what mame_708 does is creates comic book pages that tell stories involving our favorite fighters, and it's all done in a cute style.

One particular Injustice 2 character was so incredibly versatile that almost every type of player could find an effective approach with her

We got rush down, we got zoners... keep away and bruisers... (I'll stop but you can appreciate how easily we could get a nice parody of Toby Keith's I Love This Bar going here) as well as plenty of other character archetypes that we players tend to enjoy specializing in, but every so often a fighter emerges who allows users to essentially approach bouts in just about any way they feel.

NetherRealm Studios' Injustice 2 had one such roster member who, while not necessarily the game's strongest or most popular avatar, was effective whether or not she wanted to fight from afar, up close, with the intention to frustrate, or to simply attempt to eat up your life bar as quickly as possible.
