Super Smash Bros. Ultimate had Nicktoons in it before Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl was a thing

90s kids and fans of Nicktoons were surprised to see a full-blown platform fighter called Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl revealed a few months back. The upcoming title takes heavy inspiration from the Super Smash Bros. series, using similar controls, battle mechanics, and even aesthetics โ€” but with popular Nickelodeon characters.

What we have now is essentially a Nickelodeon Smash Bros., but funnily enough Super Smash Bros. Ultimate had Nicktoons in it before Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl was actually a thing. This is all thanks to Smash Ultimate's Stage Builder tool.

Street Fighter 5 Director shares awesome Marvel Super Heroes concept art and design documents

Street Fighter 5's Director Takayuki Nakayama has been actively sharing awesome video game artwork on Twitter. Outside of classic Capcom game pieces that you might not have seen before, the developer also draws up what might be the best guesses for King of Fighters 15's character announcement silhouettes.

Today, though, Nakayama took another trip down memory lane and posted several pieces of concept art for Capcom's Marvel Super Heroes fighting game. Not only do we see a finished promotional illustration, but also included are a handful of design documents featuring popular fighters.

The perfect V-Trigger screen freeze gives Oro a nearly full screen conversion into Tengu Stone in this Street Fighter 5 clip

Using the screen freeze that comes from V-Trigger activation in Street Fighter 5 can have some particularly nice benefits. Not only can the sudden pause mess up your opponent's timing, but that stationary couple of seconds can give you time to react and punish your foe more properly.

L.E.S. on Twitter shared a clip in which they used Oro's V-Trigger 2 screen freeze to react to a stray hit from his V-Skill and convert it into a combo. The kicker, though, is that Oro was nearly full screen away when this happened, and was still able to close the distance in time to score a big Tengu Stone conversion.

Ruby Heart crossover costume revealed for Rose in Street Fighter 5

A brand new crossover costume is headed to Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition as Rose players will soon be able to take on the guise of Marvel vs. Capcom 2's Ruby Heart.

The French-speaking swashbuckling pirate was one of just a few original characters made for Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and outside of a few guest appearances like this one, has not really been in much else. We've got the trailer from the Street Fighter YouTube channel waiting for you below.

Punk on why he thinks Alex is a high tier character while Necalli, Lucia, Zangief, and others are 'pointless' in Street Fighter 5

A few days back Victor "PG|Punk" Woodley, one of the absolute strongest Street Fighter 5 players on the planet, released a tier list that had many members of the fighting game community scratching their heads. He has more recently released a video wherein he explains his placements, though we're not sure how much clarity it actually offers.

The character whose placement received the most scrutiny from audiences had to be Alex, who has traditionally been seen as a joke in previous years of SF5's life because of how drastically bad he was. Capcom certainly buffed him here in Season 5, but it's still hard to swallow the idea that he went from being regarded as the worst fighter on the roster to where Punk places him: in A-tier.

Skarlet, Mileena, and Jade โ€“ three great reasons to check out Miss Taurus' Mortal Kombat cosplay

Sexy, cute, and deadly โ€“ that's a recipe for success when it comes to Mortal Kombat cosplay, and that's exactly what Miss Taurus brings to the table via her takes on Jade, Skarlet, and Mileena. We spotted her wonderful work thanks to a recent shout out by Ed Boon on Twitter, and it's not the first time he's done so.

We've rounded up a handful of images and videos as Miss Taurus shows off all three in more traditional Mortal Kombat threads captured via the clearly talented photographer Angel Luis.

'Both Disney and Capcom have seen #FreeMvC2' - Digital Eclipse's Mike Mika on trying to get Marvel vs. Capcom 2 back in circulation

Digital Eclipse is development company that focuses on emulating arcade games to bring them to consoles, and were the last ones to produce a console version of now "jailed" Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (you currently can't buy it for home consoles anywhere). Following the start of Maximilian's still-popular #FreeMvC2 campaign, Digital Eclipse has shown interest in potentially bringing the iconic title back to consoles... if both Capcom and Disney were to be on board with the idea.

Mike Mika, Studio Head for Digital Eclipse, recently sat down for an interview with Shack News to further discuss what would need to happen for MvC2 to make a real return, and the kinds of obstacles that still may be in place.

New episode of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime anime features several big Street Fighter and Dragon Ball Z references

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, an anime series based on a Japanese novel series, recently kicked off the second half of its second season. Apparently, in the first episode back, the show included several big references to both the Street Fighter franchise and Dragon Ball Z.

In a scene where two characters can be seen slugging it out, one of the fighters is very clearly seen using various moves from Street Fighter's own Ryu and Dragon Ball Z's Goku. It's not just the visuals here, though, as the character is heard yelling out the names of these maneuvers as they are performed.

French artist's doodles of Street Fighter's Chun-Li are better than some of her in-game appearances

We stumbled across the work of Raphaelle "Rafchu" Marx because Capcom themselves retweeted and remarked at how awesome one of the artist's collection of Chun-Li doodles was.

After agreeing, we continued to see more of Rafchu's portfolio. Not only did we find more wonderfully cute Chun-Li doodles in various different costume colors, but also an awesome cartoon image of Chun, Sakura, and few other Street Fighter ladies on a summer beach.

One of the three Spongebob series representatives in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is none other than the loveable dunce, Patrick Star. In this platform fighter, the pink sea dweller fights using a grappler move set, and we were given a look at all of his attacks on paper earlier this month.

Today, however, we have a full breakdown from the game's development team that shows exactly how each of Patrick's moves work in combat.

Here's the place, date and time Guilty Gear Strive will likely receive its next DLC character reveal

Jack-O released as the second DLC character for Guilty Gear Strive just a little over a few weeks ago, but we may soon be looking at fighter three already in the very near future.

You see, there's a certain big gaming event starting up before the end of the month, which is looking like the best place for Arc System Works to showcase who's coming next to Strive for a few reasons.

Which Street Fighter game has the best music?

The Street Fighter franchise is known for a good many attributes, but one that we don't talk about enough has to be the music. The world of video games has some incredibly steep competition when it comes to this particular category, but Street Fighter has some absolute bangers that have a real shot at ranking in as some of the most influential of all time.

On this week's EventHubs Podcast episode, I open myself up to much ridicule as I rank six numbered SF titles (SF Alpha, SF1, SF2, SF3, SF4, and SF5) in order from weakest to strongest in terms of their music. Here we go...

How far has Seth fallen? Xian shares his updated match up chart for Street Fighter 5's previously popular pocket character

Last year was Seth's first in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition, and the Street Fighter 4 boss proved incredibly powerful as tons of pro players chose to learn him as a secondary character. This led developers to hit Seth with a handful of nerfs to shave off some of his more obvious advantages, and the big question now is where he's ended up.

RZR|Xian, an Evo champion and one of the best Street Fighter players on the planet, was among the best of the many Seth users in 2020. He's recently put together a mostly complete match up chart for the character, and we've got it for you here to explore.

Street Fighter 5 Director pulls out a big ol' boomerang for his return to King of Fighters 15 sketches

Things have been going a bit differently in the camp of announcements for The King of Fighters 15 with the big Gamescom trailer and Ash Crimson reveals, so we've been missing out on our silhouette memes for like a month now.

That's finally changed, however, with SNK's latest character teaser, which of course means that Street Fighter 5 Director Takayuki Nakayama has also returned with a new sketch of how he interprets the shadow man.
