M. Bison and Shadaloo may not be actually gone for good according to Street Fighter 6's Director

The destruction of M. Bison and downfall of Shadaloo by the end of Street Fighter 5's story had seemingly put an end to that chapter of the series after 3 decades, but that may not be the case after all.

During the recent round of interviews for Street Fighter 6, Director Takayuki Nakayama appears to imply that the dictator could still be revived.

'Why are we counting down?' — Hungrybox absolutely loses it when he finds out during this Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tourney match

Probably the most hype tournament moment for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate happened recently during an event called Smash Reality #4. Liquid|Hungrybox was commentating during a match that pitted Epic_Gabriel's R.O.B. and BeastModePaul's Hero against one another.

By the time the clip starts, BeastModePaul is at a stock deficit. For seemingly no reason, the crowd just randomly started to chant a countdown from 10. With this much anticipation, it was expected that something was going to bound to happen at the end of the sequence, but it wasn't entirely clear what that something was just yet.

New Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tier list based on character peak performances at tournaments since January 2022

Coming up with an agreeable tier list for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a rather difficult task considering that the game has a roster made up of 86 different fighters. It's always worth mentioning that a large assortment of these characters have performed well at tournaments. This seems to suggest that the vast majority of the roster are at least somewhat viable, which is actually a fairly impressive feat.

Barnard's Loop recently decided to take a more objective approach to the tier list creation process for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For this particular list, characters are ranked based on their peak performances at tournaments in 2022, ranging from January to June of this year.

The fever dream of seeing Guilty Gear and BlazBlue's protagonists do battle may soon become a reality thanks to slick new Strive mod

Despite their similarities, Arc System Works have largely kept their two most successful original fighting game franchises, Guilty Gear and BlazBlue, largely separate from one another for well over a decade now.

That may soon be changing, however, with a slick upcoming mod created by WistfulHopes / Ryn that adds Ragna the Bloodegde as a playable character to Guilty Gear Strive.

Although Street Fighter 6 was only announced earlier this year, there's a lot of anticipation that's been building up for the next entry in Capcom's iconic fighting game series.

Riddles and Sonix's grand finals showdown at CEO 2022's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate event was unbelievably intense the entire time

CEO 2022 ended up holding the attention of a variety of fighting game fans, but it was the Super Smash Ultimate event that technically featured the most action as it had the highest number of competitors entered to compete — 650 in total.

At the conclusion of the tournament, BAN|Sonix and his Sonic ended up facing off against Liquid|Riddles, who was using both Terry Bogard and Kazuya Mishima during his run. This ended up being one of the most intense sets throughout the history of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. You really had to see it to believe what was happening.

This wild 1-character comeback vs. a full team in King of Fighters 15's losers final was arguably the hypest sequence of CEO 2022

CEO 2022 may be done and over with now, but the weekend event gifted us all too many great moments to count between dozens of fighting games.

There was one sequence in particular, however, that was arguably more hype than all the rest which happened to take place during the losers final of The King of Fighters 15 tournament.

Evo Moment 37 recreated in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate using Ken, Kazuya and the Perfect Shield mechanic

Evo Moment 37 will no doubt go down in history as one of the most iconic FGC moments ever. Against all odds, BST|Daigo Umehara managed to Parry every single hit of Chun-Li's super and secure the optimal punish during a high stakes Street Fighter 3: Third Strike match where everyone was shouting as loud as they could.

While Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Perfect Shield mechanic (often just called a "Parry" within the community) is much more lenient with its window compared to Third Strike's Parry, it's still pretty impressive when a sequence involving the Perfect Shield occurs. Notably, Gamer on Twitter recently recreated Evo Moment 37 in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with the sound from the event left intact.

Who will win Street Fighter 6's tournament or ending battle?

We've previously documented who won the various Street Fighter tournaments, but with a brand new game on the horizon, we wanted to discuss who the most likely candidates to take home the glory will be. While not every Street Fighter entry has an official tournament in it, there's usual a last battle of some sort in lieu of a bracket, and we often count the person who delivers the killing blow on the main boss as the winner for that game.

With the past winners in mind, along with a number of other characters who fit the timeline and power requirements needed to be a tournament winner, we discuss who the most likely candidates are to win Street Fighter 6's tournament or last battle.
