Ono - Next Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite announcement is coming soon! Has the MvCI news dam finally burst?

After months and months of silence on the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite front, Capcom finally hit us with a ton of Marvel news, including a release date of September 19th, just yesterday.

Though it may not have been on purpose, we also got to see nearly five minutes of gameplay from a video that dropped earlier today. Needless to say, we're excited, but how long is the company going to wait before giving us another peek? Not long, according to Capcom Producer Yoshinori Ono.

We're not sure what role, if any, the Street Fighter figure is playing in the development of the latest MvC title, but he took to Twitter recently to encourage fans with the following statement:

Thailand remastered stage removed from Street Fighter 5 in-game store, Capcom releases statement

Update: Capcom has released an official statement on this matter, which you'll find after the jump.

Earlier: With yesterday's Street Fighter 5 update came the highly anticipated Thailand remastered stage -- a remake of M. Bison's classic Street Fighter 2 backdrop. Unfortunately, the stage wasn't available for very long.

Last night, the new battleground was removed from Street Fighter 5's in-game store. Though some fans were able to get their hands on it quickly enough, many have been unable to purchase it and still cannot do so.

The reason why the stage was pulled is currently unknown, but /r/StreetFighter user Venom44 pointed out a potential issue with the background music's lyrics that some believe may have been the cause.

Colors 11-15 for Battle and Story costumes in Street Fighter 5 added after latest patch, here's a look at all of them

Yesterday's update to Street Fighter 5 added a large batch of new content. Most of it was stuff Capcom made fans aware of ahead of time, but there's some extra goodies that they slipped in as a pleasant surprise.

Now, all characters have access to colors 11-15 for Story and Battle costumes. Each of them can be purchased in-game with Fight Money.

CFN has images of every new color on their website, which you can find by clicking through the "character select" and "costumes" tab.

CEO Dreamland reports $20,000 loss; Smash Bros. will still maintain heavily featured presence at future CEO events

Alex Jebailey's Smash-centered CEO Dreamland was a success in many ways, just not in the financial sense.

One would think a fighting game event with 1,100 attendees would finish well in the black, but the tournament organizer's expenditures to ensure his event went above and beyond left him about $20,000 in the red.

Despite this financial failure, (the first in CEO event history) Jebailey plans to continue to feature Smash Bros. at future events in no small way, though another CEO Dreamland may not be in the cards for 2018.

"Currently CEO likely shouldn't throw another Dreamland leading into CEO Daytona which I'm planning to feature Smash at with everything else. Daytona is set to be a revolutionary experience for CEO and the need to produce it successfully makes running any at-loss ventures in 2018 a bad idea," Jebailey explained in a public statement.

You can view said statement on the matter in full below.

If you blindly throw a dart at our homepage right now, chances are you'll hit a juicy bit of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite news. (I don't advise you throw darts at anything other than a dartboard, just to clarify).

One thing that was briefly shown at the end of this morning's Story Mode trailer, which may have gone unnoticed amidst all the excitement, was the reveal of Sigma as a DLC character. Outside of the quick graphic, a quick line in the Capcom Unity blog gave us more information on how Capcom will be handling DLC for their latest crossover title.

Much like Street Fighter 5, we will be seeing the release of a season pass -- for those who want to score the first wave of DLC characters in one go. According to this morning's blog, there will be six post-launch fighters to start, and Sigma is the first of them revealed.

While this may make things easier for greener players, history tells us that more established members of the FGC may not be as akin to this at first.
