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.

After showing a brief teaser yesterday, the future of Mortal Kombat 11: Ultimate's professional eSports circuit is now quite clear, and it involves a good deal of cash.

Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios announced today that the Mortal Kombat 11 Pro Kompetition Season 2 will be officially returning in December though only PlayStation 4 owners will be able to participate in events — the PlayStation 5 cannot be used.

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.

Ryu's story should be moving beyond his struggle with the Satsui no Hado in Street Fighter 6

Fans have plenty of reasons to suspect that Street Fighter 6 is being developed. At the conclusion of Street Fighter 5's main story mode, A Shadow Falls, M. Bison effectively died following his defeat to Ryu. This could inevitably result in a reduced presence for the Shadaloo dictator in Street Fighter 6.

Of course, M. Bison wasn't the only character to go through some sort of change during the events of A Shadow Falls. Going forward, we'll probably see Ryu's story go in a different direction compared to what has happened to Street Fighter's most iconic character up to this point.

Who can outpace Steve's redstone-powered Minecart in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?

While there are many questions about Minecraft Steve's viability in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Steve's side special — the Minecart — feels like a strong tool when Steve has access to both gold and redstone.

When powered by the appropriate resources, Steve's Minecart is extremely fast and difficult to react to. Evidently, only a small percentage of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's 82-fighter roster can outrun the Minecart. Nintendo Unity recently uploaded a video that showcases which characters can achieve this.

Here's a list of banned custom variation options and combinations for competitive Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate

The Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate update implemented the ability to use custom variation options during competitive play. One can easily imagine how this will have a major impact on the tournament meta.

However, some moves are still banned from competitive modes and tournaments. Moves like Terminator's Terminate, D'Vorah's Mother Bug and other "resurrection" variation options are among the banned moves.

Viewers were convinced Tekken 7 combo master is actually a computer so the hand camera came on proving who the king of the iron arcade stick really is

Any play that's considered too clean or perfect nowadays in competitive video games is going to face extra scrutiny to determine whether or not the person behind it is a cheater, and fighting games are no exception to that.

Man viewers and commenters on Pak Tekken's "hardest possible combo exhibitions" were convinced that the content creator was using tool-assisted software to make a computer do the work for him, so he recently made a new video for Season 4 with a controller camera to confirm how legit he really is.

Cammy was originally supposed to be censored to wear less revealing clothing in Super Street Fighter 2 outside of Japan

Cammy's default costume with her green leotard and red hat hasn't really changed much since her introduction almost 30 years ago, but many western players apparently almost saw her for the first time sporting a very different look.

Arika vice president Ichiro Mihara recently recounted a tale about Capcom requiring him to alter Cammy's attire in Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers to be less revealing with new sprites, but obviously they didn't make their way into the final game — though we may know what the outfit looked like.

Faust literally dies in his time over loss animation in Guilty Gear Strive and it has us dying too

Arc System Works have been among the best in the video game industry for their insane attention to detail most recently shown off in licensed titles like Dragon Ball FighterZ and Granblue Fantasy: Versus. They may be looking to set the bar even higher going forward, however.

The developer regularly shares small snippets of gameplay or character details for the upcoming Guilty Gear Strive, but their latest showcasing Faust's time over loss animation — something that should be so insignificant in the grand scheme of the game — is so full of charm and detail that we're dying to see what else the fighters will have to offer.

Strange 'tech' for Gogeta makes his opponent completely invincible in Dragon Ball FighterZ yet still leaves him in the advantage

Dragon Ball FighterZ players only seem to be finding more and more crazy tech in the game for a ton of characters here in Season 3.5, but it's not every day we see one that involves taking advantage of straight up glitches.

Resident lab monster Rin-senpai recently shared a bug for Gogeta's command grab that oddly makes the opponent invincible to literally everything, but they turn it around to make it an advantage for the character.
