The WWE crossover event in The King of Fighters All Star is ridiculous in all the right ways

As one of the most peculiar crossovers in recent memory, it's only natural that The King of Fighters All Star, the mobile game centered around SNK's popular fighting game franchise, made headlines earlier this month when it was officially unveiled that their latest event would be a crossover extravaganza together with none other than the WWE โ€” World Wrestling Entertainment.

Although crossovers have been done in the past in the game, we've mostly seen them focus on other fighting games or at least relatively closely tied media but never any real life people until all of a sudden we had Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and John Cena standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami. As someone who regularly plays The King of Fighters All Star, with this crossover period being no exception, I'll attest to this though โ€” the craziest thing of all is that no matter how bizarre it seems at first, it actually works exceptionally well.

New Brutality revealed for Sheeva in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath calls back to an old MK3 Fatality

Ed Boon was up to his usual trolling ways yesterday (we assume he was the one behind it) as the official Mortal Kombat Twitter page posed a poll to fans asking which Sheeva Brutality they'd like to see, but did so with a catch.

Four options were listed in said poll, (Pounding Headache, Skinned, Delightful Torture, and Shake and Quake) but one of them was apparently a faux choice and not one of the incoming character's sudden kill moves. Fans voted for "Skinned" and it turns out it indeed was a very real, very NSFW Brutality.

During a bout with a G player Daigo turns up the offense and starts hammering away, trying to crack his foe's defenses. This goes on for a full 45 seconds as the G player blocks hit after hit, and after 38 strikes and two V-Reversals you can imagine how much white life is built up.

Third Strike player pulls off about 99% of EVO Moment 37 in Grand Finals of tournament, then the saddest thing in the world happens

Even gamers who don't specialize in fighting games will often recognize EVO Moment 37, (a legendary 2004 sequence wherein RB|Daigo Umehara successfully parried the entirety of Justin Wong's Chun-Li Super to avoid chip damage, and then punished with a game-winning combo) and our genre's most famous in-game exchange was almost recreated in a more recent tournament set.

The event was Heaven or Hell 2019, a Brazilian competition held in November of last year. The Third Strike tournament had been whittled down to just two remaining players: Saoparry|Mardico, who used Chun-Li, and PRTCK|JuanGuitar, who used Ken.
