Zaferino's new Sagat tech involving negative edge fireballs and an option select proves we haven't quite seen everything The King has to offer in SF5

Despite being perhaps the most highly anticipated character to join the Street Fighter 5 roster after initial launch, Sagat has made a somewhat disappointing landing amidst the game's mid tier fighters, ultimately lacking the tools needed to really thrive.

While he may not be top tier, there are a good few Sagat faithfuls that continue to explore what The King can do here in his latest iteration, and the learned master of the Fighter Academy, Zaferino, has come across some new tech that might help the one eyed Muay Thai competitor level up in the eyes of the community a bit.

Mortal Kombat 11 review: Fighting games' goriest franchise continues to excel at what it's good at and makes progress where it traditionally hasn't

NetherRealm Studios have gotten big scale Mortal Kombat development down to a science, consistently upping antes, tightening loose ends, and moving in a somewhat predictable (a good thing) fashion.

While not a perfect game, the latest MK installment absolutely delivers on expectations while taking appropriate risks. It achieves the fundamental goal of moving the MK train along nicely, but certainly adds a few new bells and whistles in the process.

Kirby gets a gun in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate thanks to Joker

There's a lot of excitement going around right now since the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate update is up and running. On top of adding the first DLC character from the Fighters Pass — Joker from Persona 5 — the Smash Ultimate 3.0 patch introduced several balance changes for a healthy portion of the game's massive roster.

Despite character changes and Joker to discuss, there of course exists a portion of the internet that is more fixated on the fact that Kirby now has a gun in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. When he inhales the new DLC character, his neutral special becomes a small pistol, and people seem to love that.

Did the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Joker trailer tease Banjo Kazooie as DLC characters?

The full reveal trailer for Persona 5's Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate came alongside a 15-minute character breakdown and run through of the additions in the 3.0 update. This patch also brought with it free content, such as the new Stage Builder mode, and this new feature was showcased in the trailer to grant fans a glimpse of how it works and examples of the types of stages you can make.

We saw several different create-a-stages, and one of them has fans thinking that it might actually be a hint at one of this season's DLC characters. Did one of the stages hint at Banjo and Kazooie's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?
