There are some new clues that may change that, however, as there's now confirmation that Goldlewis Dickinson does indeed have some sort of unique mechanic tied to his character.

The fathers of Street Fighter 2 are teaming up to try their hand at creating a new fighting game

Street Fighter 2 changed the arcade landscape forever by introducing the world to the joys of fighting games though the creators of the landmark title pretty much all left Capcom and went their separate ways.

Earlier this month, former Street Fighter Producer Yoshiki Okamoto joined forces once again with SF2 Designer Akira Nishitani and SF2 Planner Noritaka Funamizu with the intention to create a new fighting game.

Ed Boon has mentioned Street Fighter a few times recently but this likely isn't any sort of clue for anything

We recently received word that NetherRealm Studios is finished developing DLC for Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate. As such, NetherRealm Studios has since moved on to their next project, whatever it may be.

In several Tweets, Ed Boon has recently brought up the topic of Street Fighter. Is this some sort of hint towards a project involving Capcom's Street Fighter? Are we finally getting Street Fighter vs. Mortal Kombat? It's extremely likely that this is NOT the case, nor will it probably ever be.

The Intel World Open Finals has kept Street Fighter 5 fans captivated for the past week with its tournaments across different regions. One of the players that competed in the South East Asia region was none other than the legendary RZR|Xian.

Although Xian has typically been known for being one of the pioneers that pushed Ibuki's meta in Street Fighter 5, he exclusively played Seth during this event. Despite the fact that Seth was nerfed not too long ago, Xian was able to demonstrate that this android still has some juice left in it during a round against Chuan's Guile.

Masahiro Sakurai's words on the importance of recognizable faces in console fighting games bodes well for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl

It's been over 20 years since Super Smash Bros. 64 was released and became a hit worldwide. The series' continued success seen today has resulted in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a game that currently has 85 playable characters (86 after the last DLC challenger of the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 is released), which has garnered over 22.85 million unit sales so far.

However, before Super Smash Bros. became what it is now, it was known to Masahiro Sakurai and the late Satoru Iwata, the two main developers for the first project, as Dragon King: The Fighting Game. At a certain point during the project's development, Sakurai realized that the Nintendo 64 title would need recognizable characters for the game to sell.

Who needs a new Guilty Gear Strive DLC character when you can now play a buff Mr. Dolphin mod for Potemkin

May's Totsugeki dolphin spamming capabilities and Potemkin's wild damage output are two of the biggest memes to take over the Guilty Gear Strive zeitgeist these past few months, and now they've been combined into one terrifyingly adorable character.

Steve player builds Twitch chat meme with blocks before finishing off opponent during Super Smash Bros. Ultimate offline tournament

Due to the character's options, Steve is a character that offers players a lot of creativity with what they can do in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. We recently saw this happen during a tournament featuring RVNT|Rockman's Steve (Alex).

While already having a considerable lead over the Toon Link player that was competing against him, Rockman managed to push his opponent off the stage with a surprise minecart. As Rockman opted not to go for an offstage edge guard, this left him with some free time on his hands.

You have to see this comical parody of Goldlewis Dickinson's 'leaked trailer' for Guilty Gear Strive before tonight's announcement

The first DLC character for Guilty Gear Strive Season Pass 1 is slated to be revealed tonight at 6:00 p.m. PDT / 9:00 p.m. EDT. This mysterious challenger will be a complete newcomer to the Guilty Gear series, so it'd have to be someone like Happy Chaos or Goldlewis Dickinson rather than somebody like Jack-O' Valentine.

Moustached Villain recently... "leaked" that the first character coming to Guilty Gear Strive via DLC is Goldlewis Dickinson. In fact, he even released the trailer for Goldlewis Dickinson before Arc System Works. It's totally not an edit that self inserts Moustached Villain dressed as Goldlewis into Guilty Gear Strive gameplay...

I-No match up chart in Guilty Gear Strive released by SonicSol after a month of playing her

SonicSol has recently released a Guilty Gear Strive match up chart for I-No. Apparently, SonicSol has been playing I-No for a full month for the purpose of formulating his opinions on the character.

Although I-No acts as one of the main antagonists of Guilty Gear Strive's story mode, she hasn't been quite as impactful as someone like Sol Badguy, Ramlethal or May in the tournament meta. As such, SonicSol's match up chart for I-No certainly isn't depicting her as some secret top tier.
