Tiers for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath

Hideki Kamiya's comments on which of his characters he wants in Super Smash Bros. points to one of them perhaps already being part of Fighters Pass 2

Hideki Kamiya's legacy as a video game director is among the most impressive in the entire industry from Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry to Okami and Wonderful 101 which has also produced some of the most iconic characters in the medium as well.

GameXplain recently had the opportunity to interview Kamiya and Platinum Games producer Atsushi Inaba to talk about a variety of subjects including the characters they'd most like to see added to Super Smash Bros. โ€” which raised the eyebrows of attentive fans.

If you ever wanted to hear Peter Weller say Finish Him! now's your chance with RoboCop's new unlockable announcer option in Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath

How good are Capcom's character picks for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition's fifth season? EventHubs' staff give our thoughts

Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition had some big news for all of its fans and followers this week during the pre-scheduled Summer Update Livestream in which the game's producers Shuuhei Matsumoto and Takayuki Nakayama talked about what's in store next for the game, and while we didn't get any trailers or any notable in-game footage, we did get to know the identities of four out of five upcoming characters in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition's fifth and final season.

While the roadmap paints a picture of a fairly long wait for some of the characters, knowing who's coming is a massive weight off of a lot of people's shoulders, and fans of the characters (or in fact, the Rival Schools franchise) can rest assured that they have something to look forward to for the game. The staff here at EventHubs is of course no exception โ€” so I, Nicholas "MajinTenshinhan" Taylor, have allied myself with my colleagues Jon "Catalyst" Grey, Steven "DreamKing" Chavez, John "Velociraptor" Guerrero and Dakota "DarkHorse" Hills to give our input and thoughts on each of the four chosen characters as well as our hopes and expectations for the last unknown combatant.

An Injustice or DC-themed Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath announcement is looking a lot more likely as Ed Boon joins list of DC FanDome presenters

Yesterday, we reported on Mortal Kombat 11's odd inclusion in the DC FanDome teaser trailer though its appearance now appears to make a lot more sense.

DC released their guest list for the DC FanDome event taking place later this month where Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon appears as one of the presenters which greatly raises the chances we may see a new fighting game announcement during the festivities.

What Granblue Fantasy Versus news can we expect to be present during tomorrow's Granblue Summer Stream?

This weekend (tomorrow, more specifically) we have a big presentation coming up for the Granblue Fantasy franchise. Now, to be clear, this is a show which will be focusing on the intellectual property as a whole, and as such will have its main focus on the core game Granblue Fantasy which is mainly played on mobile devices. Thanks to the expansion of the brand name of Cygames hit series though, there are a lot of other projects tied to the Granblue Fantasy banner which will also be included. We got direct confirmation during last week's Fighting Game Publisher's Roundtable that there would be new information and reveals for Granblue Fantasy Versus at this very event from the game's director over at Arc System Works, Kazuto Sekine.

Given that Granblue Fantasy is a Cygames property, it makes sense for them to want to separate their unveilings from a developer's roundtable when they have a bigger event for their whole brand going on just a week later, and as such most people were probably expecting something to be shown tomorrow regardless, but having confirmation from Sekine is reassuring. So what exactly is it we'll be seeing? We know about some of the upcoming Granblue Fantasy Versus content, though details are scarce, so going on the little information we have, coupled with how Cygames and Arc System Works have operated in the past when it comes to Granblue Fantasy Versus, we can at least speculate on what will be shown about 14 hours from now.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Marvel vs. Capcom 3 have a ton of similarities and Desk showcases them in this spiffy new combo and move exhibition

I hadn't realized it before, but a lot of the moves and Hyper Combos from back in Marvel vs. Capcom 2 were carried over into its successor, Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Street Fighter 5 director releases adorable cat versions of Dan, Rose, Oro and Akira which were kinda teased beforehand

This week showcased the largest drop of new Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition reveals that we've seen in many months when Capcom announced Dan, Rose, Oro and Akira from Rival Schools would be coming as DLC characters for the game though they had something extra and cuter to go along with it too.

Following the Summer Update announcement stream, Street Fighter 5 director Takayuki Nakayama shared artwork of the Season 5 characters transformed into cats as a tie in to one of their previous April Fool's Day games.

Rumor: Street Fighter 6 was slated for a 2021 release but has been internally delayed due to poor reception from testers

While fans of Street Fighter 5 are certainly happy to have heard on Tuesday that a full season's worth of DLC content is still en route for Champion Edition, they were simultaneously somewhat disheartened to see that this content would not start rolling out for a few months and will not be fully available until the end of 2021.

The reason for this bit of deflation appears twofold: first because of the long wait for SF5 content, and second because of the indirect implications that a Street Fighter 6 is further off than hopes and expectations assumed. A fairly eminent leaker by the name of AestheticGamer (they also sometimes go by Dusk Golem) recently took to Twitter to say that Street Fighter 6 was originally slated for 2021, but has been delayed.

The price of the PlayStation 5 may have been leaked by a major French retailer... and you'd better start saving now

Of the things Sony has thus revealed for their highly anticipated PlayStation 5, the console's price tag is not one of them. As we know all too well in the gaming community, you aren't always the one to share your biggest reveals, and that might be the case when it comes to the cost of the PS5.

Initially reported by PhonAndroid and addressed in English via BGR, major French retail company Carrefour reportedly posted prices for the next generation gaming platform on their website. Said postings were rapidly taken down, but not before plenty of screen shots were taken.

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath patch notes released for August 6 update

An all new patch update has rolled out for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath that includes a handful of changes to general gameplay as well as for more than 20 of the game's roster members. It applies to all versions of the game across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia.

It seems one of the main focuses of this update is on Brutalities as developers have altered many characters' sudden kill moves, often making them easier to perform. Newcomers such as Fujin, Robocop, Sheeva, Terminator, and Joker all get a bit of attention here, though the majority of changes deal only in bug fixes.
