Dan has a secret intro in Marvel vs. Capcom 2 that's an amazing callback to the Street Fighter Alpha series

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 serves as the magnum opus for everything Capcom accomplished in the fighting game genre in the 90's, and it's filled to the brim with references and tie-ins to everything that came before.

There's still even things within the game that the vast, vast majority of players have never seen or knew existed before like Dan Hibiki's secret intro for MvC2 as recently shown off by longtime FGC documentarian Preppy.

The Art Director for God of War is creating incredibly lifelike images of Street Fighter characters

We featured some work of Raf Grassetti's around this time last year when he turned a handful of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters into incredibly realistic versions of themselves, now we're excited to report he's doing the same thing to Street Fighter 2's roster.

It goes without saying that the Art Director behind 2018's God of War knows a thing or two about creating captivating visuals, but one almost has to wonder if Capcom would do well to go with a more realistic route and hire Grassetti on for Street Fighter 6.

One unexpected move is what makes Guile S tier instead of A tier in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition according to Daigo

Although RB|Daigo Umehara has been putting some time into Kage in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition, it seems that Guile is still his main character of choice. Recently, Daigo mentioned his belief that Guile can't be an S tier character unless he's always keeping a specific move in mind.

FGC Translated released a video that transcribes Daigo's thoughts on the matter. The air throw is apparently an extremely important tool in Guile's kit that shouldn't be underestimated.

Fujin has an infinite combo in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath

With his high flying movement options and ability to harness the power of the wind to keep foes at bay, we figured Fujin may be a little frustrating to face off against in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath. It didn't take the community long, however, to discover that the god of wind also has the ability to perform infinite combos.

MK REO has posted a video showcasing this extremely repetitive sequence as Fujin takes advantage of a stance switch cancel technique.

One of the best Greninja players in the world got his main during The Quarantine Series King of WiFi Random Characters only to lose to Little Mac

The Quarantine Series King of WiFi Random Characters is an online Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournaments that's happening over this weekend. With the goal of making online tournaments more enjoyable for competitors during the COVID-19 pandemic, those invited to this event are locked to the random select option on the character select screen.

One particular set pitted Stroder up against Jakal. Being that Stroder is considered to be one of the best Greninja users in the world and is notable for being proficient with a large assortment of characters, it's fair to say that Stroder was the favorite to win this encounter. Still, his opponent, Jakal, is often referred to as the best Wolf in the Tristate and is also armed with plenty of secondaries.

Would Dan, a joke character, be an acceptable DLC choice for Street Fighter 5's final season

With the news that Street Fighter 5's roster isn't quite finished growing shaking up the scene just two days ago, the community has naturally and rapidly turned to conversation concerning which characters might end up occupying spots 41-45.

Names like Makoto, C. Viper, Rose, and Dudley have been prominent, but there's actually a somewhat surprising amount of passion for a particularly interesting fighter: Dan Hibiki.

Which five characters will be in Street Fighter 5's final season? EventHubs staff share which World Warriors we're expecting to see

Just the other day, Capcom announced that we would indeed be seeing more content this year, promising new costumes, stages and the most exciting tidbit of them all — five new characters joining the roster to round it out at 45, narrowly beating out the final Street Fighter 4 roster by one character.

Of course, the Street Fighter universe is vast and there are tons of characters we know and love who haven't gotten to be part of Street Fighter 5 yet, plus there's always the possibility of more brand new characters, since Street Fighter 5 has been anything but shy with putting brand new faces at the forefront. The only thing we know for sure is that the characters to be added have already been decided upon and are being developed right now. So who could we be seeing? Well, I joined forces with Jonathan "Catalyst" Grey, Steven "Dreamking" Chavez, John "Velociraptor" Guerrero and Dakota "DarkHorse" Hills and we each picked one character we expect to see in this final season, making for a combined total of exactly five, with each expected character written about in our own words, respectively.
