General news roundup: Skullgirls' Fukua now available, King of Fighters 13 100% combos, 14 fancy Pandora combos in SFxT and more

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • May 20, 2014 at 11:47 a.m. PDT

Quite a bit of news/tech has been sent to us this past week, so instead of posting a bunch of rapid fire stories, we thought we'd round it all up in one spot for everyone to check out. This week's general roundup features Skullgirls Encore, Street Fighter X Tekken, King of Fighters 13, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate.

First up, Skullgirls Encore added some new content via an automatic update. Players on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC now have full, playable access to Fukua, the Filia clone that was originally intended to merely be an April Fool's joke.

Fukua's story mode has been added, along with two new stages: The Glass Canopy and Nightmare Crest. Several bug fixes and balance changes have also been implemented.

Editor's note: Fukua can be found by moving the cursor to the right of Big Band on the character select screen. Her portrait will not be visible until you hover over her.

Hit the jump for more fighting game news/tech.

Skullgirls Fukua beginner guides

For those of you looking to pick up Fukua in Skullgirls Encore, UzumakiheroGaming put together two great introductions to the character.

The following videos discuss her normals, Supers, target combos, useful air attacks, and more.

King of Fighters 13 100% combos

PersonaEntertainment brings us more excellent King of Fighters 13 combo videos, but instead of solely going for flashy set ups, these compilations focus on knocking out the opponent in one go.

Each of the combos here deals a whopping 100% damage, and you'll find various characters in action including Terry, Ralf, Elisabeth, Leona, Ralph, Iori, Kyo, K' and more.

Injustice "Cornered" combo/reset video

Ronald Rogan sent us his latest and arguably greatest Injustice: Gods Among Us combo video to date.

Demonstrated here are numerous 100% combo set ups, inescapable resets, unblockables, interactable tech, high damage combos using much of the cast, and more. There is so much tech here, it'll make your head spin!

Street Fighter X Tekken 14 fancy Pandora combos

Qs_FrEnZy created a Street Fighter X Tekken montage that features 14 fancy Pandora combos.

A ton of characters make an appearance here, so if you're a fan of Asuka, Lili, Hugo, Ryu, Alisa, Steve, Raven, and a handful of others, be sure to check this video out.

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Akira combos

Last but certainly not least, Zeo put together an extensive Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate combo video for the Virtua Fighter guest character, Akira.

The setups here cover a wide variety of situations including neutral and counter hit, guard break, combos on heavier characters, and more. Input notations can be found on-screen as each combo is performed, making this a great resource for any aspiring Akira player.

Nice Kof combos. Shame that some characters like Terry, Andy, etc need 5 bars to kill. Better using someone else for kill combos, but it's nice to know.

Virtua_Kazama said on May 20, 2014 at 11:59 a.m.

Zeo did a great job with his Akira combos. He is a very slept-on character.

Zidiane said on May 20, 2014 at 12:32 p.m.

Oh, so that's why you guys weren't reporting about stuff right away. I thought you guys were just dead up ignoring news. Was really confused.

Sanox said on May 20, 2014 at 12:33 p.m.

ads probably. still sucks since that is the moment where i normally turn on adblock.

RonaldRogan said on May 20, 2014 at 12:37 p.m.

hah. that's what I said. I had like 3 ppl message me saying my video was hype and they submitted it to Eventhubs. I was like whaaaat? I know it doesn't suck, they always post my stuff lol.

Thanks for putting this video up!

JIHADJOE said on May 20, 2014 at 12:38 p.m.

"Slept-on" sort of implies that people somehow think Akira isn't that strong, but IMO if tier lists are any indication the general consensus is that he IS hella strong, just that people don't use him because he's also very hard to use.

I have nothing but the utmost respect for any player who can play a good Akira.

Jason said on May 20, 2014 at 12:40 p.m.

Fukua is a ton of fun. Best clone character ever.

JIHADJOE said on May 20, 2014 at 12:46 p.m.

^ oops my bad, I thought this was about VF5FS, not DOA5U.
*reading fail*

Wardog said on May 20, 2014 at 1:08 p.m.

Is KoF13 online dead or really laggy?

Connection wise... is it like third strike online, Skull girls, SFxT or SF4AE? I keep hearing two sides of this game connection. Thanks

renegade89 said on May 20, 2014 at 1:10 p.m.

Yeah, Akira works quite differently in DOA. The game's a lot more lenient with command execution, so knee and sp/gbod are pretty easy to do consistently (especially if use him in VF)
The fact that his offense is so mid-punch oriented can make him pretty easy to counter though, so you've gotta be a little creative.

ThaBigDaddyCMaster said on May 20, 2014 at 1:20 p.m.

I personally find it to be better than SF4 online for the PC version. The steam version is very cheap and is MUCH better online than the console version which is horrible.

Just stay at a minimum of a 2 bar connection. 3 bar or more is optimal.

Yo eventhubs

How is this not big news LOL i sent this in hours ago !

Xykes said on May 20, 2014 at 2 p.m.


Considering how many people send in news here daily, you really think they'd get to a sinlge message in a couple HOURS?

How many emails do you get per day? Now, take that number and multiply is by 1000. Now, imagine responding to all those by checking the source, finding/editing header images, writing an article, and uploading it to the site in a couple hours.


Blackoshinomi said on May 20, 2014 at 2:17 p.m.

Im not going to lie to you i get like two or 3 emails a day LOL

When i said hours it was like 1:00pm when i sent it in, It's curently 5:00 pm i just assumed they would have read it by now -_-

Wardog said on May 20, 2014 at 2:19 p.m.

Ok,thanks for the reply. I'm going to get this game and wanna make sure the online was good. I'll give a try.

Thanks again.

ThaBigDaddyCMaster said on May 20, 2014 at 2:31 p.m.

You should be fine. What region do you live in?

U4iA27 said on May 20, 2014 at 3:14 p.m.

so am i the only one having problems with downloading fukua on 360? i managed to update to encore a while back and downloaded the 7mb update which i assume is supposed to add fukua but all it did was turn my game back to regular skull girls telling me i need to update my game to play online.

CrimsonRex said on May 20, 2014 at 3:40 p.m.

Akira has always been intermediate level.

Dreamking23 said on May 20, 2014 at 4:21 p.m.

The same thing happened to me. Just go back in and re-download the compatibility pack. It'll take a bit to download, but everything should be good after that!

Qs_FrEnZy said on May 20, 2014 at 4:40 p.m.

Thanks for the feature I have another video to send in right now... Idk whether you or whoever will post but it's worth a try and thanks again.

Hey, Dreamking. Can you update thw story with this?

EnsignHiro said on May 20, 2014 at 6:09 p.m.

Oh shoot they weren't joking about fukua

ThaBigDaddyCMaster said on May 20, 2014 at 6:44 p.m.

Lots of competition there.

tidestick said on May 20, 2014 at 6:59 p.m.

FUKUA IS DOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!

edrigo said on May 20, 2014 at 7:13 p.m.

I hope this general news round up stays it's such a good idea great job guys.

synce said on May 20, 2014 at 7:14 p.m.

THIS is how you do DLC. They annouced Fukua after SF's Decapre and DOA's Phase-4, AND released her FOR FREE before either of those two other clones.

Zidiane said on May 20, 2014 at 7:19 p.m.

Yo. Let's go. We Skullgirls. Fukua took like 3 days for Mike to make, and her extra animations were actually made by a fan. I'm surprised that was never reported on, a Skullgirls fan actually worked with Lab Zero to make extra frames for her grabs, and the frames for her forever-a-clone moves.

TrueGamingGuru said on May 20, 2014 at 9:46 p.m.


Heres another thing Fukua along with Phase-4 wasn't overhyped as Decapre, and they were announced before hand.


Fukua would've ended up being a limited time offer (meaning she there for either couple of days or weeks, before disappearing completely), but plenty of players were interested enough on wanting to play as Fukua. So she will always be selectable.

Zombie4u said on May 21, 2014 at 4:35 a.m.

Excellent! Thanks so much for the great information Dreamking23! That did the trick!

DJScrubble said on May 21, 2014 at 8:29 p.m.

Fukua is so good. Oh Jesus Christ she's so much fun to play.
