Four Street Fighter 5 mistakes we want to see fixed in Street Fighter 6

We're changing up our approach to the EventHubs Podcast on YouTube a bit and uploading only segments in video form (full audio versions will become available on Fridays moving forward). This week's first segment focuses in on the lessons we (and hopefully Capcom) have learned when it comes to what not to do via Street Fighter 5.

We've come up with a total of four specific SF5 missteps we'd like to see executed properly in Street Fighter 6, whenever it may come. Speaking of, most of these stem from a broader foundational ask: please don't rush it out the door.

Granblue Fantasy: Versus Director feels rollback netcode is practically a 'must-have' now but is unsure if they'll be able to add the feature in

Granblue Fantasy: Versus appeared poised to make a strong impact upon its initial release after strong positive reception in the FGC and launch sales, but it hit shelves at probably the worst possible time right as the coronavirus pandemic was starting to take hold of the wider world.

With almost all offline tournaments shuttered for over a year now, one of Versus' biggest flaws of continuing to use delay-based netcode for its online hurt the game in some fashion, though we'll obviously never know how much, and Granblue's Director has finally spoken out about the prospect of adding the much-preferred rollback netcode to GBVS.

The Shirai Ryu was originally founded by a former assassin of the Lin Kuei in the Mortal Kombat universe

In Mortal Kombat lore, there's been a bitter and bloody rivalry between the Lin Kuei and Shirai Ryu. It was this rivalry that resulted in the death of Hanzo Hasashi and his family, which then caused him to be reborn as Scorpion. Following this, Scorpion exacted his revenge against Bi-Han, the original Sub-Zero of the first Mortal Kombat game, who then resurrected as the evil Noob Saibot.

How did this bloody history begin in Mortal Kombat lore? Interestingly enough, it was because the founder of the Shirai Ryu was originally a Japanese member of the Lin Kuei.

Now that King has flown the coop, who will be rounding out the Women Fighters Team with Mai and Yuri in King of Fighters 15?

As has been customary since the year began, we got yet another King of Fighters 15 trailer last week, though this one was a special double-whammy featuring both Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia. Along with their unveiling, they also confirmed that the Art of Fighting team has been grouped together featuring Ryo, Robert and the last March reveal, King.

We had previously seen Mai Shiranui, Yuri Sakazaki and King revealed without any confirmation of a Women Fighters team, so people were already quite sure that these three leading ladies had been split up, though the question was always who's the odd woman out? In a previous speculation piece, I actually called it that King would be grouping up with Art of Fighting this time around. But that leaves the question, who's joining Mai and Yuri for the Women Fighters Team in King of Fighters 15, or are Mai and Yuri even on the same team at all? Let's take a look at some likely candidates.

Crash Bandicoot 4 Creative Producer: We all dream of the day Crash joins the Super Smash Bros. roster, don't we?

Following the release of Pyra & Mythra on March 4, Nintendo has been very silent in regards to what's next for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate content. At this point, we're expecting a character reveal or two at the online E3 event that's to be held in June.

Poll: What do you think Street Fighter 5 Season 5's final DLC character is going to be?

Street Fighter 5 is steadily working its way through its fifth season of content. With the recent release of Rose and three more DLC characters still en route — two of which whose identities are currently known — the community is still left wondering who, or what, that final fighter will be.

Capcom has done an excellent job of sharing information about the game's upcoming content here in 2021 so far, and what is definitely a means for building up a big reveal, they've done equally as well at hiding the identity of that final character. We have taken to Twitter to ask the masses: What do you think Street Fighter 5 Season 5's final DLC character is going to be?

Justin Wong releases new Marvel vs. Capcom 2 tier list with a twist

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 holds an odd yet important place in the history of the FGC for being one of the premier games to help keep the scene going at a time when Capcom wasn't making new fighting games while also being one of the most busted titles ever in terms of character balance.

Justin Wong, a seven-time Evo champion in MvC2, recently released a new tier list for the 21-year-old crossover fighter with a bit of a twist.
