Disney apparently weren't the ones being 'very picky' over Sora's Super Smash Bros. inclusion, it was Tetsuya Nomura

Kingdom Hearts' Sora getting added as the final DLC character of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was the perfect way to close out support for the historic game considering he was treated as an impossible dream pick for years.

Many fans presumed that Disney's ownership of the series would present too many roadblocks for Sora's inclusion, but in a new interview with Game Informer, Kingdom Hearts Director Tetsuya Nomura revealed that he was actually the one being "very picky" about the appearance.

Sakura ditches Street Fighter 5 for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 via beautiful mod, complete with moveset

Street Fighter's Sakura Kasugano is one of the franchise's most popular characters, and so the news that the school girl shoto can now be played in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is surely going to turn some heads.

This has been achieved thanks to the modding efforts of Dragonify, who gave Sakura more than just her SF5 visuals. Dragonify took the time to animate the character's move set into Marvel 3, meaning you can pull off her unique leaping tatsus, blast foes with her angled Shinku Hadoken, and let multiple Shoryukens rip.

Guile confirmed to have just frame timing version of Sonic Boom that's enhanced in Street Fighter 6

Guile is the latest character that's been officially announced to be joining Street Fighter 6's roster. During the trailer, eagle-eyed fans might've noticed two instances in which Guile exclaimed "Perfect!" as he threw his trademarked Sonic Boom special.

Earlier today, Capcom has confirmed that there is actually a meaning behind this occurrence. If the player is able to input a Sonic Boom "with perfect timing," the projectile attack will be enhanced with "additional properties."

Fan mod adds content creator King Jae to the roster of Tekken 7

It seems like Bandai Namco has concluded their DLC for Tekken 7 with the release of Season 4's Kunimitsu and Lidia. The release of the Originals and Definitive Editions for Tekken 7 back in November of 2021 certainly cements this as being the case.

However, it's still technically possible for fans to add their ideas for characters into Tekken 7 via modding. As such, a mod that makes YouTube content creator King Jae into a playable fighter in Tekken 7 is now available for free on tekkenmods.com.

Gluttony's Wario uses Pac-Man's trampoline for an absurd conversion at Battle of BC 4's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate event

While most Street Fighter fans were likely focusing their attention on all the Street Fighter 6 news and footage that was surfacing over this past weekend, a Gold event for the Smash World Tour was happening at Battle of BC 4 for both Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Unlike the last game, all of Chun-Li's jiggle physics got put into her booty for Street Fighter 6

Chun-Li has held the title of "strongest woman in the world" for over 30 years now, but on top of her power, she's also got a figure that many women would kill for.

Longtime Street Fighter 5 players probably remember Chun-Li's infamous run in with jiggle physics from early on in the game, and it appears the bounce is back with a vengeance in Street Fighter 6 — but(t) this time, it's on the opposite end.

Some of Street Fighter 6's Burnout stances are actually direct references to past games

The Drive System and its separate uses unlock the full potential of Street Fighter 6, but using up all of your juice leaves you in the Burnout state, which you definitely don't want to be in.

One of the more interesting and subtle changes the Burnout status does to the character though is that it actually alters their default pose / stance that can directly harken back to older Street Fighter titles — potentially even ones that didn't even technically release.

Not even a whiff of old top tiers like Urien and Akuma were to be found at CPT Japan but a ton of other characters did make a splash

Looking back just a year or 2 ago, just about any big Street Fighter 5 tournament in Japan was basically sure to have multiple Urien, Akuma and Cammy players running amongst the finalists, but without their top tier status in Champion Edition any longer, they appear to have mostly fallen by the wayside.

Now that the Capcom Pro Tour Online 2022 for Japan wrapped up earlier today, we've gathered the full character usage breakdown for the top 64 finalists, which revealed some fairly surprising top contenders.

There have been five characters announced for Street Fighter 6 thus far, but only Ryu, Luke, Chun-Li and Jamie have had gameplay shown outside of trailers. A select number of players have had the opportunity to give Street Fighter 6 a try and have recorded footage for the rest of us to see.
